Rebuilding seat help

I have a 93 xlt that the driver side seat is just about gone. My backside is
getting a little sore riding on the metal. The fabric is decent shape but I
will need to rebuild everything underneath. Does anyone have and good
sources for supplies? Any hints? Thanks in advance.

Dennis

Re: Rebuilding seat help

This may be a dumb suggestion, but can you switch it with the
passenger's seat? I did this on a Blazer when the driver's seat (which
got almost all of the wear) started getting a bit ratty, and it worked
like a charm.

Re: Rebuilding seat help

I could but the foam padding is really bad. Almost nothing left. So, at this
point I think it is best to just make the repair.

Have you considered calling Ford and seeing if they still sell the
foam cushion? That's what I did a few years ago. Cost was around
$100 but it's new and perfect, not some pieced together patchwork
repair.
