I've replaced the foam in both sport seats. Fairly easy to do.
I used Vette Essentials web site instructions as a guide to remove the seats and the covers.

If you are not already doing so, consider replacing the foam in your seats especially if you have some miles on the car.

One thing to consider is the new leather will be tight going on.

Best of luck and post some pictures when you are done.


Drivers side before.
Note the outside (left in picture) how broken down the lower seat is.







The seat cover was not worn through, just the foam.



After.
MUCH better...



Here you can see the dark rub line just above the seat trim bezel.
The new foam raised the seat that much.
