Have had a bunch of strato buckets recovered with repro covers. Up until about 10 years ago, my upholstery guy would build up the original foam on the bolsters, wouldn't replace the foam. As time has marched on, the core bucket seats I get in, just aren't as nice as they used to be, and replacing seat foam buns is a must.
The first repro bucket seat foam I bought was from the AZ bunch, as the bucket seat springs set up high and firm, didn't replace them. Those particular seats have held up well. Some seats, one can tell, the springs set to low, too much seat time on them, have several '68 buckets like that, the frames are nice, but need complete lower seat springs replaced.
