Well, the search function let me down again. Since I can't seem to find any 05-06 seats for under $300, I had read about just buying the foam and I see you can get covers. I think that'd be a cheaper solution. Has anyone done this and if so, how did it work out? Where did you get your foam and where did you get your cover and how much was it total? If I'm going to have $300+ in foam, cover, shipping and installation, then I'll just get a new one or hold out till next year. They shouldn't be that hard to come by used, I don't think. I have a Team Arctic edition and I think the seat vinyl is a little different on mine, so I don't want to go cutting up the stock design.

If anyone has any other suggestions, let me know.
