Bought a pair of '69 headrest seats to put in a '68. One of them was obviously stored with somethng on top, the foam of one headrest has a noticeable dent in it.

Wondering what can be done to fill/sculpt something in to even out the area prior to upholstering....

New foam?
Upholstery wadding?
If you're replacing the seat foam, maybe you can re-use some of the old foam to reshape the headrest.

Parked in the sun, on a hot day, will bring it right back. An upholstery steamer will, too.

Heat and Sun ain't doing it. Live in Brisbane, Australia and the parts have been sitting on my workbench in the shed for over a month, gets up to about 90-100 in there all shut up on a hot day (just came out of summer here). Laid 'em in the baking Brisbane sun a few times all afternoon, metal too hot to touch, no change...

Next option?

The steamer is the option I have seen in the trade used before. Brings new life to old foam. Not sure how long it lasts. You might have similar affect with a household iron with steamer.
