    We had original seat cushions in the Archer, and the foam rubber had gotten kind of hard. We put on shearling sheep skin covers, and you know what: they still hurt me. When we had the bird repainted, we re-did in Confor Foam. Now that is comfortable. When you do that, you don't want to put a lot of insulator between you and the seat.
