I remember these having a wedge that was placed under the rear seat, to help support it. Why not attach something like this to the bottom, instead of something loose that can be lost?

No dice. Sac under the rear seat that is far larger than the space both vertically and in width. Most of the time it lives in the sundeck position

I meant, attach it to the bottom of the seat cushion, not the floor.

ah I gotcha. I've given it some thought and think I'm going to do ply and epoxy it along with doubling up on the metal underseat supports. That should cut some of the weight. Other option ripping some strips for under it. Going to dig into it this weekend and just go one way or the other.

I haven't sat down since they uploaded the pictures for fear of staining

Then I got bad news. Evidently the old skins were diff sizes and now I have to mail in my rear decks to have them actually install the skins. I appreciate the meticulous nature and the possible monster headache Jim saved me but my budget is getting blown up
