Piling onto thread, on my 16' GW I want to go back to the original spring and kapok construction instead of foam on the backrest (seat cushions are Kapok) . Does anyone have pictures of what the original should look like, how many springs, size of springs etc? My recollection from the original was the backrest had springs filled with Kapok, then covered with burlap before being wrapped. Does that sound right?
