RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

its quite a bit firmer, also used a piece of doormat material to keep the bottom cushion from being cut. as suggested by some on this forum. its an improvement for sure

That was my idea, as I outlined in my seat rebuild thread.

I haven't had any wear on my foam since 2008, when I recovered my seats.

When I recovered my seats and installed new bottom foam, I used a double layer of burlap between the foam and the wire spring support. Also fixed the rocking problem and the broken little wing thing in the bolsters. Been 4 or 5 years and no problems. feels good on the old bony bottom with new foam.
