Default Rumble seat

I have a 1930 coupe. Does someone have a picture or description of the lower attaching hardware for the Rumble seat back cushion assembly.
I do believe my car is incorrect.
The rear cushion pushes up when closed, so when opened it disengages the upper tabs in the lid.

Thank you

do not know how to post pictures, they are just small bent over sheet metal tabs with holes in them. The tab is bent around the lower spring and screwed into a hole in the rumble lid. You cant see it hardly you have to feel for it. You slide the top clips in the slots at the top and screw the bottom tabs to the inside rumble with small screws. One on each side at bottom of spring roughly even with top slots, look for holes. Mine came attached to the springs I ordered from Snyders, but I would not hesitate to make my on.

Do you mean the tabs attach to the springs themselves, not the seat frame?
I have tabs that attach to the lower back seat frame, not the springs.
This might be my issue.
Thanks

If you are calling the bottom metal of the spring assembly then yes. I am not sure what you are calling the seat frame. The spring does not have a separate frame.

Here is a picture of the tab on my original 1930 rumble seat rear cushion. The tab is in the lower left of the picture
