Re-stuff or re-upholster seats??? SLK32

My seats look ok but they feel like they're getting a little threadbare. Feels like I'm sitting on a thin piece of foam on top of a metal frame.

I was wondering if anyone has replaced the existing padding or added foam or other padding to their seats.

Seems like it might be pretty easy to add a flat piece of memory foam or gel underneath the existing material. That way the seat would keep the contours of the original stuffing, but now it would have a little more cushioning ability.

Any thoughts?

Only fro the standpoint that there is a shop down the road that re-upholsters classic cars - I think they pretty much always replace the foam when they recover - don't see why you could not do the same.
