Restoring an old Yamaha SnoScoot is a project we’re working on for some of our young riders in the AmSnow camp.
We started with the seat. which had only a few places where foam was missing. The rest of the foam looked fine. Instead of building an entire new seat with new foam (which can be expensive) we easily patched the only small “bad” area with spray foam and cut and molded it once it dried with a new extra-long X-Acto knife. Quality expandable spray foam for sealing gaps around pipes conforms to the depression and bonds fairly well to the old foam. Also the firmness (density) is not terribly different from the original. Note that the original foam must still be in good condition and not rotting and flaking away. Next we’ll be doing an easy recovering of the seat.
Look for more on this project sled in a future issue.
