Shame and sadness.
Replacing the seats is out of the equation and finding replacement foam that exactly matches the original doesn't appear to be possible. So here is what I did. I took a thick piece of flexible plastic (think plastic kiddy pool) and put it between the springs and the foam of the driver seat. Not a perfect solution but a big improvement.
This can be done without taking the seat apart too.
Thanks Rusty_Wrench! I have a replacement seat (pulled from an exceptional specimen at the junk yard) and I was thinking of doing the exact same thing to negate that issue. Glad it worked for you, and now I know I'm on the right track!
