    2007 9-5 Aero needs front seat foam cushion

    Hello Fellow Saab enthusiasts:

    My 9-5 Aero wagon, a real joy to own, has been undergoing restoration and mechanically is in top condition. I am now focusing on the interior. I have "parchment" ventilated seats and I want to rebuild the front "sport" seats and replace the leather. The leather will be matched and done by an upholstery pro but before spending the dough for new leather I want to replace the foam seat cushions. I am having no luck finding the bottom "ventilated" foam cushions. Orio, et al tell me that the part is no longer being supplied. Anybody know of a comparable replacement cushion, i.e. the 9-3 sport seat, or come across a GM substitute, or know of some company that can fabricate a new one? if so I would like to know.
    Thanks,

    Wm. Krall, Jr.

    If you could send your original foam, I could make a replacement. I work in automotive seating development, and make prototype parts for testing and trim design. It could be done for a reasonable cost.

    Hello Kurt:

    Thank you for your offer and I am interested in getting further details. When you have time please email me at Wekesq77@gmail.com
    I would like to know how long do you think a "prototype" would take to make, approximate cost, etc. Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    William
