but I suppose not quite what you want from a comfort point of view (as if anybody driving a Sonett worries about being comfortable!)
I remember pulling the upholstery off one of these seats and noticing that the bottom part of the fiberglass shell has irregularly-spaced holes in it, probably for seat-of-pants ventilation. Conceivably these could weaken the shell a bit.
You mention that your seats have been redone; I wonder if the person who redid them sanded off a bit too much fiberglass (in an attempt to clean them up, remove old glue, whatever) and now the holey section is sagging as a result.
At any rate, as long as there's enough of the original structure left to follow its contours, I'd think it would be pretty easy to fix by layering on a couple of new layers of glass cloth and resin. Just build it up until it's thick enough to hold you, then drill new vent holes following the original hole locations as a guide. This will mean redoing the upholstery again, but the good news is that even if your fiberglass work is a bit sloppy, the upholstery will cover it up. The original fiberglass is no thing of beauty anyway!
