Good job. It's a bit scary cutting into your seat, isn't it.

I've just done mine also, but not to lower it, although that was one of the consequences. I cut it to a similar shape to yours, cut out the whole of the foam underneath the butt area and added a different kind of foam, raised it a bit at the front and widened it by an inch in the sitting bone area of the seat for better support.

I also added a layer of 8mm soft smoothing foam over the top of the whole seat.



I've used your pic as a template. The straight lines are the section I cut out and the curved lines are the new width of the seat.

Tools used were scissors, electric knife and rasp. I glued it all using contact adhesive. Cost was $A60.00 for the seat foam, $A16.00 for the smoothing foam and around $A20.00 for the adhesive. I already had the staples and staple gun.

Here you go ralphus. There are some lines on the seat caused by my seat bag so disregard them. Also disregard the spot where I photoshopped a small patch of glue from the seat. I dunno how to get it off without damaging the vinyl but I'll figure something out.



Apologies to tripler for stealing his topic.
