If the long rib at the top causes a problem to cover (No room for staples) then maybe 2 ribs at the further outer points where possible , approx the same width as the single one of the original . This will stop it from trying to rotate and fit badly. Your extended rib might make it difficult to assemble but should stop it also from falling off.
    Paul - How about this version? Extra material on the outer edges (like Stig has in his photo) and better bracing. I want to try to make the pad be an option for people with SP4/SP5 original seats and want slimmer rear pads, so I don't want to make the top hook too wide, but I have lowered and lengthened the lower stabilzer tabs, on the left and right side.

    Thanks to the forum for the reviews of what I have done so far and advice given.

    Yes that looks really good now , I am sure you will be able to see and feel the difference. Where will you be getting the foam part and the covering material from ?.

    After this part I guess the next job will be the front single seat base. That will require metal inserts but I am sure you could model in the necessary shape to fix them.
