    Where are you sourcing your foam, and are you cutting and trimming it? I recovered a seat not long ago. Solid foam seat no springs. The foam was ok, but might have been best to just replace it. However pre cut pieces for that particular seat were unavailable. I would have had to get something close, then cut and trim. So I went over the old with a thinner layer of foam and batting. Working fine so far, but it was 60 year old foam. Time will tell how long my job lasts. Just curious how you do it. I am about 399 seats behind you.

    skidder,thanks
    I just do the covers to ship out,the foam is not made by anyone,I have done some foam work,you need to buy thick sheets of good quality foam and cut it into shape.The riginals where formed in a mold.Foam is not cheap,whatever you do do not buy the green from Johan Fabrics,it doesn't hold up in the heat of a car.I buy mine from Miami corp.

    Fantastic job on the seats! To anyone planning on using their original foam you might want to consider using a steamer on it to rejuvenate the foam before installing it. You can also successfully replace a bad section of foam, say on the drivers bolster area, with another very well matched new piece. Glue the two together using contact cement. The foam store near where I live actually sells foam which they have sometimes glued together. I might be wrong but I think seats require 8 pound foam.

    Thanks guys, good info and good work. When I did my bench, I was shocked. That foam is seriously expensive.
