    Looks like you bought one to many sponges and too much black tape... Could have saved a bit more $$.

    Scotty,

    I can honestly say that is the finest sponge taping of a lawn tractor seat I have ever seen..

    Scotty,
    Tractor Supply has utility seats in black or yellow for $49. Not quite as cheap as your repair but a little better looking and far less than your replacement quote.
    P.S. Don't let the wife see that extra sponge. She'll have you wash dishes with it instead of using the dishwasher to save on electric and water.
