Thread: Lotus Seat Rebuild

Results 1 to 8 of 8
  1. #1 Default Lotus Seat Rebuild 
    I've been rebuilding my spare lotus seats for the canada trip next week. Figured i'd share.

    the material most people use is called Air2Gel, a shock absorbing foam made by Kemmler. I ordered 3/8th and 1/8th thicknesses to use. It comes in awesome green and blue colors.

    The lotus seats themselves are seriously just contact cemented together. The whole center section just pulls off if you go slow and carefully.



    The first step is to flip the lumbar bladder. Lotus positioned it way too high up the seat to be comfortable or helpful. All you do is peel it off and flip it so the hose still exits the same hole in the seat, and re-glue it in place.



    Next a strip of 3/8th foam is glued in over the metal support bar. A second larger piece is glued on the rest of the seat area.




    The back portion of the seat narrows a little. So a different width piece is glued in running up to about where the base of your shoulder blades are.



    Last step is to glue in some 1/8th foam over these for a little more padding.




    The center section of the seat can then be re-glued to the base, and the push tabs at the top re-inserted. I didn't fully glue the seat centers back in just incase I need to tweak the padding a little more once Dad starts driving around with them.



    The foam is visble if you're looking for it. When I do Dad's seats for real i'll be paiting the foam black to hide it and doing a more thorough job of re-gluing the center section.



    My plan is to swap these in next wednesday before canada, and then let Dad drive with them for a month to try them and see what he thinks. Once he says he likes them we'll re-do his seats and I'll take mine back.

    Passenger seat is done. need to go pull the driver's seat apart and do the same to that one.

    Good timing dude, those looked rather uncomfortable before the adjustments.

    To be honest they aren't terrible. I did the new england rally in 2011 in the car, and was comfortable the whole time. I've been reading about this mod for a few months and figured it couldn't hurt though, especially where my back was bugging me after the Gloucester run earlier this year. My biggest complaint with the stock seats was the lumbar support being in the wrong place. Fixing that alone is a huge help.

    The foam is designed for shock absorption, so it should make the ride just a little more comfortable.


    I am generally amused with the fact that just about everything in the lotus is glued together. The seats, chassis, everything.
