Default fixed and improved driver's seat LOTS OF PICS

Hey guys, So today i decided to tackle the horrible seats in our trucks, well one seat for now. I got some supplies and i was ready to go. I got some spray adhesive, 2" foam and 1" foam. I read how some had to fix the seating part of the seat since the foam got "eaten" by the frame but i wanted to go one step further and do something about the horrible back support. Some1 said it perfectly that it feels like sliding on a park bench when turning. So i also took the back part of the seat off and to my surprise the foam was ripped worse than the bottom foam. It had rips all over the place. Well the end result is excellent. I couldn't be happier. My seat feels like racing seat... well almost... I know how every1 here is a pic whore including myself so i snapped some for ya



only small rip on the side


not much padding


back mold




thats what i found, goes all the way up on the inside(both sides)






here we go with burlap and glue :rck:









little pressure and ready to go
