Seems like the consensus is custom cab seat bottom cushion is 5" thick. The "guess" for standard is 1-2" thick,. Does anyone have a more definitive for the standard cab seat bottom thickness? Probably finally get to mine this winter.

Post #11, I talked to MN66, he said for the backrest 1" foam and 1" poly covering the entire foam. He said it was tight and would not recommend 2" foam and poly. My backrest foam is 1 3/4" thick. I guess it depends on the cover also, not all upholstery will be the same. My 1966 CC has a full 5" of foam on the seat cushion.

The email says:
"For the seat back, I'm not sure there would be room for 2" of foam, mine feels pretty taught with 1" foam plus batting. Maybe if you shaped the top edge and sides? I left my edges square and overlapped the Polyester batting just slightly over the foam and seat frame. On my seat bottom, I first used some heavy vinyl upholstery hog-ringed to the seat frame over the top of the springs. Then I spray contact adhesive on the vinyl and first layer of foam. Then added the second layer of foam with adhesive, followed by the polyester batting on the seat surface and down just beyond the frame. When I installed the seat cover, I tucked the polyester batting into the seat cover so it can't be seen underneath the seat."

Wow, my bad, I thought he was referring to CC. That's what happens when you try to read and do other things at same time.
