About to do this myself, but only because I want something firmer/cushier. My horsehair is in decent shape, it just doesn't stack up against the firmness of newer seats.

There's so many different kinds of foam available, and if I'm not mistaken, a few people have used "Memory Foam" to their advantage. I'm planning on just hitting up a good foam store and taking a look at what they have.

The "pool noodle" DIY in the DIY Articles uses foam for a top layer. While his cut leaves a little to be desired (square edge cuts look to bulge around the corners of the seat), he says he's real happy with the results.
