80's GM seatfoam

We haven't found Regal (late 80's G-Body) bucket seatfoam.
There is a vendor offering Monte foam which he claims will work with modification. Does anyone have a sense of how much modification is required?
Can one swap a good passenger foam set into a driver's door?
Thanks
Dave

(took me a year to find a nice driver's door apparently I'm still traumatized... )

seat foam

If the seats are equal buckets and not 60/40 they interchange most of the time

There's no way to know how much modification is needed between the Regal seat foam and the Monte Carlo seat foam until you see both pieces of seat foam, the new one and the old one.

"If the seats are equal buckets and not 60/40 they interchange most of the time"

That is not true. Once in a while both sides, driver and passenger, use the same seat bottom foam, but almost always they are not identical. They may only need minor modification. The seat back foam may be identical, however. Once again, it depends on the seats.

Here is a link to your Regal seat foam: CLICK HERE

seats

My answer might have been misunderstood. I was answering the question about pass. side and dr, side interchangeable. Iv'e done this hundreds of times. When someone needs dr. seat repaired and needs their car, I just swap seats and they can use their car until I get seat repaired. Some times you have to change tracks. One is elect and other manual etc.

Yes, that is true, almost all bucket seats can be mounted on either side of the car temporarily until the correct seat is fixed and put back where it belongs.

The best idea I've seen is in the older Toyota 4 Runner, and maybe other models as well. Those seats have interchangeable seat bottoms. You can switch the passenger side bottom with the driver's side bottom because they are exactly the same.
