SEAT FOAM FIX

DOING A COUPLEO F 74-75 SEAT FOAMS AND THE RESIDENT MOUSE LIKED THE FOAM

NOT BEING A SEAT GUY HOW DOO I FIX THIS
SO I SAT AND THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR AWHILE AND THEN CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA
THE HOLE LOOKS TO BE 3 INCHES AND I JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE A 3 INCH HOLE SAW

SO I CUT OUT THE BAD PART AND FOUND SOME DONOR FOAM FROM ANOTHER SEAT

PLUGED IT WITH THE "NEW" FOAM AND SPRAYED THE PLUG AND INSIDE WITH SOME SCOTCH 90 HOWEVER  77 SHOULD WORK. IT CAME OUT REALLY GOOD.

NOW TO THE NEXT SEAT THAT IT LOOKS LIE SOME BEES/HORNETS BORED INTO THE SEAT. SO I TOOK SOME MORE DONOR FOAM AND GLUED IT TO THE SEAT


PUT THREE COATS OF GLUE ON THE SEAT HOLE AND FOAM AND STUCK THEM TOGETHER. LET IT DRY FOR AN HOUR/TILL HARD AND THE GROUND IT TO MATCH THE CONTOUR OF THE SEAT WITH THIS GRINDING WHEEL

HERE WERE THE RESULTS


NEST TIME I WILL USE ONE BIG PIECE OF FOAM. THE TRICK IS TO JUST BEARLY TOUCH THE FOAN WITH THE WHEEL. IT TOOK ABOUT 3 MINUTES TO GRIND IT DOWN. PUT QUILT BATTING ON THE SEAT AND HERE IS THE RESULT

YETI
