I'd like to replace the foam on the rear bench seat. What type of foam are people using.

To keep your bus as nice and og as possible - take an old piece for comparison. Go to a Michaels or craft store, goto a car upholstery store to find like and kind.

Its not cheap. You should have density options and thickness. Keep close to stock and make sure not to over stuff and or get to big or small a thickness. Keeping the set square looks the best in my opinion. I see buses all the time for sale with puff, rounded seat bottoms and they look funny - off like they dont belong.

This is my opinion of course as at times people do what they can with what they have - but if you have a choice......... Confused Laughing
