Here is what he wrote:Foam is kind of made in 2 different ways, one way is how firm the foam is, how much weight it takes to compress it. The other more important way(IMO) is the weight of the foam, heavier the better. You can have a cheap light foam that supports a lot of weight, but breaks down quickly(think cheap sofa). Then you can have a heavier weight foam that is either soft or hard, depending on your weight. For our sofa I chose the heaviest foam I could get, in a medium to higher compression weight, it's great! For something like a car seat I'd suggest heavier foam and purchase the compression rate that best suits your weight.
I see you also have an account on the Bolt forum, if you deem appropriate you might want to post a link to this foam company. Again there might be others but I checked quite a few and these guys were the best priced for good to great quality foam, and they totally cut to size for N/C, at least they did for my sofa cushions.
Thanks Leftie, didn't realize it was so easy to post here
I'd suggest either the HR33 foam, very heavy and medium density or their XL38 which is very firm but a lighter foam(slightly less cost). For our sectional I had 5 pieces of foam cut, 3 of the HR33 foam and 2 XL38 as I wanted a firm foam but also know heavier is better for foam(lasts longer). Anyway we tried the XL38 and while it was sure firm, it just wasn't as cushy as we'd like. We now have the HR33 in our 3 most sat in places and the XL38 in the 2 least used areas. In hindsight I'd have gotten all HR33 but when I mentioned on the phone I wanted a "firm" foam, the guy really suggested the XL38 so we got a couple of those, even though I wanted the heaviest foam possible. The foam is the exact same size and other than sitting on it(or lifting the cushion) you wouldn't know they were different.
Funny note about the company, while they do sell on the internet and you can order there, they have no email(that I could find) all correspondence needs to be done via their toll free number.....don't see than much anymore
Shipping was reasonable and I believe took a little more than a week to get my order.
Now knowing this trick I'm going to have to give the Bolt another sit. At first sit at the auto show I knew I didn't care for the seats and thought it could be a deal breaker, if this foam thing works it could be a contender again for our next car
