Then added 1" of mid-density foam and made a new cover with carbon fiber look vinyl, and added a back pad to the top box. She is good for a couple of hundred miles now, no problem. We stop frequently anyway to get off and stretch, etc.
That looks great, very professional looking. Has anyone tried doing similar treatment to the front seat? One of my few gripes so far is the comfort of the seat after an hour or so. It's not horrible, but I definitely get pressure points after the foam has compressed a bit. I know there are options like Corbin or Renazco, but they're both spendy, and I'm not a big fan of the Corbin design, and not sure I have the patience for Renazco.
