    Any suggestions on how to make the seat more comfortable?  Anyone retrofit a different seat?  There isn’t much room there!



    Schu has an extensive thread in here on reconfiguring the construction of the seat base.

    Eddy, I made my seats like Dale (Schu) described in General Discussion “Seat Fix” posted March 17 2011.

    I used more webbing than Dale, 5 across and 3 fore to aft. Foam used was 3″ thick “Luxury Foam” topped with 2″ “Memory Foam”. Descriptions of the foam can be found at
    For the seat back I used 3″ thick HD23 foam covered by 1″ thick Loose Dacron. I found all the materials at a local foam store.
    I’ve driven over 500 miles so far and couldn’t be happier with the seat comfort. Thanks to Dale, no “dead butt syndrome” (DBS). Clap
