    Thanks. This is a true art form. I'll send the passenger seat to you.

    They look like you'd sit on them, getting in the car. Wonder if they bend easy. If the bolster rubs against the metal something is going to give. Either wear a hole or split a seam. Just my opinion.

    I don't like the way they wrinkle the side of the seat and I thought about wear and tear. Good idea, but I think it needs more improvement before I would be interested. Maybe a softer coating over the metal.

    Wow, that’s clever but if you’re going to redo your seats, might as well do that internally.

    Installing the bolsters on the out side of the leather, makes no sense? I should be under the leather and have the foam contained so as not to look ugly and after with repeated use I can see that it will rub and cut the leather.
