thanks once again
actually when i mentioned scrapyards i was thinking more in terms of trying to find and fit complete seats from a higer spec car. SE, SEL, SEC ETC.
but i fully take on board the new spring thing. i will check out those prices here in Blighty.
unfortunately, not only are the springs on my seat gone but so too is the cover, although i could always throw something over this. i hate extra covers. the cars were designed to look good without them. so i am really looking to replace pretty much everything. perhaps i can find good covers in a scrapyard, maybe even leather, if i'm lucky, and then purchase new springs.
i'm going to get on with this as my seat is depressing, both physically and mentally!
