seat constructio

I think most of you know by now that I am in the proccess of restoring a great durant car. I am not going for a 100 point car -just one that will look good and drive well.At the moment I am working on the floor boards and running boards.I was thinking of using plywood for the running boards. Any comments on this ?? Also going to use plywood for the rear part of the floor under the drivers seat.
One thing I need is a plan or sketch showing the construction of the seats --both drivers seat and rumble seat --I have nothing to guide me atall. Can some one send me a sketch or a picture of the wood construction .I will build a box type seat and fill with a slab of foam till I can get a good spring . I really want to get this car on the road soon --The finall touches I can work on at my liesure after it is runnung
Thanks for any info

Hi Ken,
