I purchased elastic strap material (for cheap) from an auto upholstery shop and my wife sewed the loop ends on her machine. I used the old straps as templates allowing for 30+ years of stretch. If you don't sew I suppose you could devise a plate/clamp/rivets etc of some sort to secure the loops.  I replaced the seat straps only and no foam. It was a big improvement. I had to guess as to the tension on the new straps. Difficult to stretch iirc during re installation but no sore butt after 3-4 hour trips so its ok. Good luck.  John
