You could potentially take the material off and cut into it, fitting a gel insert, and then re-covering it with the material you removed. I'm sure it'll help tons!

I bought a sheepskin cover from Alaska leathers. For the money it looks great and gives me about an hour more seat time.

I tore mine apart and used 2 layers of suncast foam and one layer of pudgee (memory foam), and reshaped. Then recovered because it was now thicker.

What did you use to shape the cushion? I was thinking an electric filet knife?

Exactly. Cuts beautifully. You gotta shape the regular foam to get your shape as the top layer of pudgee doesn't cut or shape well.
