'65 Safari Goucho Cushion Questions

hi,
i'm about to have my cushions rebuilt for a safari i bought last spring. im not sure the way they are now are correct or original. i have seen a post where one of the cushions is sewed to the other and they sort of fold up. can anyone take a look at my pics and see if they can tell me if this is correct and if not what i need to do.

its pretty obvious that when i pull the goucho out i can lay all 3 cushions side by side, but when in the couch position it doesn't seem correct.

thanks!

The narrow cushion should either go under the backrest for support or on top of the backrest for a head rest of sorts.

On ours, there is a shelf attached to the wall for the top cushion to lean against laid out the way it is in picture #2. The top cushion should rest on top of the back one and lean against the shelf, if that makes sense. Normally the 2 cushions that make up the sittin area are in one solid piece on top with pockets to put the foam in. They are very difficult to make so I am assuming they just made seperate covers because it was easier. I can take some pictures of ours later if you need them.

Hi Bob. Here are the pictures I promised. This is the shelf up front behind the gaucho. Hope it helps.
