Seat Foam Quality

I am looking for info on the most comfortable seat cushions to replace the Gonzoed foam in my 64 pontiac buckets.
I see replacements in the Ames catalog(pricey) and year one (less exspensive) but I am not to sure they are as comfortable as maybe someother brand? Any one have any experience with that? Thanks

It's pretty much a crap shoot what you will get as replacement foam. I did a set of '60s Mustang buckets, and the new foam was so firm it wouldn't let the seat back sit upright. I've gotten other foam that was so soft it was almost non-existent.

Those two places probably have the same supplier, so go with the less expensive ones. If they show up and they're too soft, return them and try the other more expensive ones to see if they're better.

The only other alternative is to have new seat foam custom made by an upholstery shop, but that's going to be pricey unless the seats are very basic.
