Still wanting/needing one.
Someone has to do this at some point.
The OP mentioned them being “economical”. Hell, I’d be happy with nearly affordable at this point.
I’m really regretting unknowingly letting my first Gypsy get tossed by someone who “helped” me move back about 18 years ago. (Though you take what help you can get when you’re in a wheelchair.)

For the love of god. If someone has a seat, scan it and post the scan on thingiverse. You could 3d-print it in sections if you had to, join the sections, paint it, and be done. No it's not the simplest project, but it's extremely doable and there's no other source. And scanning doesn't sacrifice an original seat! For that matter, ALL the parts of ALL the bots should be scanned and available as 3D print files by now.

Back from the dead - I have a seat on its way to me.  Anyone know of someone who can scan it near Southeastern NH?  I had someone who could but the place closed down, as did the place that did fiberglass, who I had intended to make reps when I finally found a seat.

If you end up making replicas, let us know!

Here I thought finding the car seat would be the hard part! I'm at a loss to find some place to scan it or mold it in fiberglass or what not.

It's likely going to be cost prohibitive to not do it yourself...

Robot Bob teased for years that he was working on a cloned seat, but so far, I've not heard of him releasing one.

The only material that makes sense offhand is fiberglass, and there's zero chance I'm going to be doing that myself.  If I can get the seat pieces scanned (I already have it apart) people can try 3D printing it or whatnot.  I can't find anywhere that is willing to do the scanning is the problem.  Even if I do, they will probably want a sum of money equal to or greater than I'm willing to spend to do so.

At a sci-fi convention a number of years ago, there was a booth where they could scan you and turn you into a 3D print.
