Default Temperfoam / Memoryfoam seat cushions

There's a 3 " thick MemoryFoam matress topper on sale at Overstock.com for $129.99. The twin size at 37 X 72 " should be enough for all seat cushions of a Cozy.

I don't know where I read it, but I remember someone saying that the foam they use on these beds in not the same as any of the three grades of temperfoam that are recommended. I seem to remember them saying that the bed foam is about twice as soft ad the softest tempurfoam.

As you can tell I'm not very difinitive on this. I'm not at this stage yet, so I didn't remember the details, just that the bed stuff is suspect, and to check it out when I do get there.

I know a guy who used to be in the business of a/c upholstry and he outfitted his Stinson 108-3 with the temperfoam stuff. It took us all the way from Calif to OSH last summer in fine foam...er, form and relative comfort. He uses three different densities in different areas of the seat. I will ask him for more information. I know we have a slightly different setup, e.g., no seat springs, composite seating area and a reclining seatback.

There really isnt room for 3 * 1 inch sheets. By the time you have the seats in you wont be able to get your legs under the IP. A few have tried it and thrown out one sheet. I have one sheet of blue, and one of green. I think these are medium and high density.

I think I used the same supplier, but used only 2 (full) sheets - green & blue.
