Dumb question . . . maybe, or maybe not . . . but how does the foam "wear out", especially in a 2007 that's only 5 years old? I've seen lots of problems with vinyl issues but I've worked with 20 year old foam and never had an issue. When I redid the skins on my 91 TriStar a few years back I washed the foam and plumped it up with a steamer and it was just fine.
