My seat on my 550 is in need of restoration/rebuilding, so I’m trying to see if anybody else has rebuilt theirs to see what all I need to do to my cushion. As you can see in the pictures, there’s a piece of cushion that was glued on to the main body of the cushion but I can’t tell if it’s something that was done by a previous repair job or part of the original construction. it appears to be part of the original construction, but it’s unusual in its placement, maybe it is there to help angle the cushion so that you have a better access to the emergency brake. Wondering if anybody else has taken their seat apart to recover it and if so, did you have this piece glued on?

i've got a 550
My seat is flat across the bottom, i recovered mine last year. the foam was still in good condition.
However i'm with you that it does look original. I'll double check on mine to be sure.

Thanks a ton, would you mind measuring your plywood bottom at its widest point left to right I know it angles back on the driver side to give better access to the E brake . Right now I have mine at 38 1/2 inches and then angle back. The problem is my Current plywood is rotten on that front corner so I can’t be for sure what that distance was.

On second thought, that’s gonna be really hard for you to do because every corner is rounded
