Rear Seat Pads?

Mine need to be replaced and they are made out of that Horse Hair fiber fill stuff. Does anyone make a Foam Pad replacement? Or anywhere I can send my pads and have them Re-made?

I used trhe search and went to the classified section and saw a nice set of Tan but no Black. At lease I do not need this to operate the car!

Do they need to be replaced or do they just need to be recovered?

If you need recovering that is a pretty easy job to do yourself with a seat kit from worlduph.com and a can of 3m adhesive spray. I can walk you through this if you need tips.

I have never seen replacement pads. If they need to be completely replaced, I think your best shot is to take the old pad into an upholstery shop and have them cut a piece of foam to the correct size. The one issue I see with that is that foam is more box shaped and may not lay the same way in the space provided.

That is the issue! The Junk they were made out of is mostly gone and just the cover remains. Sort of hard to recover something that is no longer there which is why I want a foam Pad so I will always have the Basic Part of the seat and some cushion no matter what!

Wickes aircraft supply seat foam cushions "may" work.
Wicks Aircraft Supply

I'd go "blue", medium firmness. YMMV

I think "YOU" have struck the nail on the head!! This I am going to buy and clean out the Junk in my seat cushions and clean them up and clue to the foam and have better than stock AND not spent a ton of money!!

Thank you!!

Resurrecting an old thread here....

I'm redoing most of the interior on my '73, including rear seat upholstery. However, the seat bottoms are toast (a PO appears to have used expanding foam on the bottoms, probably because they were disintegrating). Did you end up using the Wicks stuff? If so, how did it work out?

Still have it and still Happy. The Blue Foam is about the Right Thickness AND has not Changed Density. I have moved to Fla and have a Piece outside near the Pool and the weather has not changed it either.

I am STILL Thanking AirBill!!

Thanks for the link, it looks like it's expired. Is this the same product from Wicks?
