Default Seat Cushions

It's winter time here in the Northeast and the Cobra is raised up and under the cover. Getting ready to start the wintertime projects. First one will be to redo the cushions with something that is a little more comfortable. They are 8 years old. I will post as I go along. Took one apart today. Not much to it and certainly not very high quality foam that is broken down. There have been previous posts providing links to sites selling different types of seat foam.

Fred, I added 1/2" green firm to the back and 1" blue medium the to the seat area Confor memory foam on the new seats I recently installed.
These folks are 25% cheaper than shops like Sportys and Aircraft Spruce.

Default Foam

Thanks. I remember. I still have the link to that place you provided and was looking at it today. That is exactly what I was looking to do. The original foam isn't bad just too mushy.

Out of curiosity, how did you remove the seat? Was it just a simple matter of removing the nuts from the underside of the floor pan?

Default Seat removal.

The seat is still in the car. The bottom cushion pops out. If you want to take the whole seat out, there are 4 bolts under the cushion. I have a seat adjuster so my seat bolts to that. I would imagine that if you don't have the adjustor, it bolts to the floor.
