When I replaced my seat foam I just went to a local discount fabric
shop and purchased a 20x20 inch block of upholstery foam. I removed
the old foam, used it as a template drew the outline of its shape on
the new block, and then proceeded to cut with an electric carving
knife. For the tapers at the front and back I did a bit of freeform
carving. This is really a very easy job.
Although the foam is open-cell as opposed to what is presumably
closed-cell, the amount of support seems correct. I would guess that
most of my improved comfort comes from the renewal of the seat
Total cost (including carving knife from a 'Goodwill' shop <$10.
Not original, but who is ever going to know?
