Tom, apparently you had contacted Birds Nest and found out they could not get front seat foams. From what I had understood from your first post in this thread Tbird Hdqtrs and Larrys were also out of stock as the AZ manufacture is now out of business. Following up on last weeks posts, Ray has shipped me one set of his old front seat foams. They should arrive to me tomorrow. Shortly thereafter, with in a day or two, I will be able to go into production and furnish front seat foams to those in need. My turnaround shall be less then a week from client’s date of order to my shipping date. I wonder if anybody is finding the same true of front seat foams for bullet birds as well?

Just now got off the fon with both TBird Hdqtrs and also Concours. Concours gets the foams from TBird Hdqtrs as they supply most of the parts houses. Tbird Hdqtrs owns the tooling for the molds that are at the manufacturer that is now out of business. Tbird Hdqtrs has found a new manufacturer to start production again in about 8-10 weeks. But they first need to get and transfer from the old manufacture (with locked doors) their tooling and die molds. So I wished them luck and said if I could help them with front seat foams in the interim time period to please contact me directly.

Keeping you all up to date, received old set of foams in the mail from Ray and now I have completed callipering and templating front seat foams for 58-60 tbirds. Therefore I am ready to start fabricating these foams as demand requires. My turnaround time from order date to shipping will be approximately 3 days on single/double sets. Multiple sets may extend my fabricating and shop time to 5 days. The pricing is $120/single seat set + shipping. I am of course able to ship directly to you or to a 3rd party address. Based upon the nature of your order I shall calculate shipping prior to your sending payment. Most shipping will be most economical with USPS parcel post, however USPS priority or UPS ground may be comparable in some cases. Please feel free to contact me at either askhow@aol.com, ca58tbird@aol.com or 612-708-2144

Jed, they look great, you are a lifesaver! My interior guy is also happy that the foams are on the way, as he is about ready to move my Goldbird outside in the cold and snow!

I'm with Richard...
Very nice job, Jed. They look better than factory original. You probably used better foam than Ford, too. - Dave

Default Front seat foam help!

Hi Jed,

You did my old passenger foams gooood!! The new foams look just like the ones that I ordered a year or so ago from one of our vendors. I am glad that I could save that set and send them to you to make patterns from. It looks like that turned out good! Now we will still have a source for front seat foams!
