I removed the driver seat again this time removing the seat cover. That itself was not an easy task especially if you’ve never done it before. The broken edges were in the direction of pressing against the leather seat cover risking the chance of cutting through. It took awhile but I was able to get the seat cover past the edged area.
You can see by bending the metal back to the original position it doesn’t look as bad. I’m going to have the seat frame welded later on today.
