Default new seat cover

So I got tired of the small hole in my seat getting bigger and bigger.

Ordered a new cover from HTMoto and got it in the mail today. I am missing some foam so trying to fill that up. Found a material that feels almost the same as the original foam.







gut the rugged parts off and got a nice round hole.



filling the big pit



glued

used a hairdryer to make it dry faster

gut another piece and got it close to what was missing.

waiting for it to dry over night and recheck if I need to cut another piece.
