Tony, the nearest I could tell on mine, is that the seat uses 1" thick, high density foam. It is cut to fit the seat pan, and is glued to the upholstery. I couldn't locate any 1" foam locally, so I used 2". I glued the foam for the backrest onto the seat pan and left the seat foam free. I made a cover, but need to do a little fine tuning to make it look right. Currently, I am not too concerned as long as it's covered. The local upholstery shop should get some of the correct foam in before the end of summer(it's not a very fast moving item, so they order that type only occasionally). Going to wait for that foam to come in before I go any farther. Pat

Tony, I had a local upholsterer make one for me. I bought the material from him and then took the old torn up material apart and made patterns. He sewed it up for twenty dollars. I kept the old parts and an extra set of new patterns all cut out for just this occasion. they are yours if you come and get them, Im in asheboro NC so email me if you want them.

I completly fabricated my seat for my Landlord. Its not even close the original but it sets good and just what i wanted, a back and arms that move up and away and it moves front and back to accommodate lager and smaller drivers. My cost $4 steel, $6 nogahide, $3 funiture bolts, ply-wood i had and some left over high density carpet padding. I love it $13 total. Actually i got enough materal to make another. Hope to weld it up and take to a show this summer to sell.
