Foam Seats on Plywood

I am wanting to make some custom seat cushions to bold to the factory frames. I have searched and found some good info but it applied to a frame with springs. How would I start from the plywood up? What foam? Any help appreciated.

foam on plywood

I built the seats in my 34 pick up using 3/4" plywood and hi density(blue) foam.They are pretty hard,and I'm thinking of cutting holes in plywood and installing webbing in them. It would make the bottom seat a little softer.

Yeah, plywood and hi density foam are good starters. In the seat frames you show youve got a bar that runs under on the small one and on the large seat your tracks run underneath your cheek. If you cut out and webb it you might smack your cheek on the bar. On those seats id put hi density foam on the bottom and a medium density on top of the plywood for cushion. You can cut foam on a bandsaw for contour or put a 4 or 5 inch wide, maybee 1-2 inches high, strip across the front of the seat bottom then a full layer on top of that so you get a little lift in the front for comfort. If you webb get a rubber webbing and criss cross it.
