Default 40 pickup seat

Anyone have some pictures of the wooden base under a 40 1/2 ton pickup seat.
Mine is plywood but I'm not sure if was originally like that.
Many thanks in advance.

Plywood with an pattern of holes to let the air escape when you sit down so the seams done split.

Sorry no picture.

That's what my 40 has and I had a orginal 38 that was the same way

Definitely plywood and I think it is 5/8" plywood.There's also holes on the front edge (two on each side) that drop over the pins on the metal riser edge. They hold the bottom in place and also allow for some adjustment forward and back of the bottom cushion
