Stock Heated Seat Modification

Post by GL470 »



I was inspired by reading troaf76 post back in 2012. He was showing a step by step, with lots of photographs, how to modified the foam on his heated seat. I have a 2008 GL1800 with comfort, nav, abs, airbag. I am contemplating modifying the seat myself. I want to scoop out about 1” of foam, soften the thigh bolsters, and trim off the love handles. My hesitation is how to soften the thigh bolsters and love handles, do you think if I drill a bunch of 3/8” holes x 1” deep in the those areas will do the job?
I don’t think I can cut them off completely, since I still need some material to fill the vinyl seat cover after. The main purpose to do this mod is to gain better reach to the ground.
Anyone has similar experience can share with me?
