  • 94 Prostar rear seat repair

    I'm leaning into winter projects and one on my list is fixing the rear seat in this 94 Prostar.


    The issue is the embedded wood in the styrofoam rear seat. The stuff in mine is just falling a part. I assume milling some wood slats and gluing them back in is the correct procedure but has anyone done this before?

    I've done this to my '92. I used pressure treated lattice strips - they were not the exact size but close enough. Home Depot, Lowe's, etc., has them. Might also be available in Trex-like material or vinyl which would last longer but gluing and staples would be more difficult. Make sure the glue you use doesn't react and eat the foam. Pretty sure I used TiteBond wood glue. I have pics somewhere, but it's not a real technical job...

    Given the wet environment, I lift the rear seat assembly up on a couple of small blocks to allow the area to dry during heavy use. And store it that way in the winter.

      Thanks for the lattice tip!

      I was thinking a latex foam construction adhesive.

        Seat repair

        I replaced plywood and used epoxy to attach. Epoxy also worked well to repair some cracked styrofoam in the seat.

            What type of adhesive did you use?
