Default Quick review of the WCC seat cushion repair kit

The short answer is - it works. There's only a few dollars of materials in the $30 kit but the instructions are detailed, all necessary items (pad/foam/etc.) are included and they figured it out, so I don't mind paying for it. The factory foam was being cut by the frame wires and the simple kit solves the problem. There's some added foam that nicely improves the bolsters. The seat feels much improved. Total time was about two hours and, like anything, the second effort would take half that. Careful of the plastic that's getting brittle as these cars age. If you've been thinking about it I say go for it. Cheers!

I bought that same kit a few years ago and was very pleased with the results. It was quite surprising how the wires had cut almost entirely through the foam. And because I am such a perfection freak I bought hog-ring pliers to close up the bottoms (instead of using zip-ties provided).
