Default Replacing leather seat

Still do not know exactly what happened, but the seat bottom to my passenger leather seat has been fried. I live in Phoenix and went golfing with some buddies and after the round my seat bottom is hard and visibly different as well. I drove a buddy, but his shorts were not wet, and only other thing I can think of is I left a translucent folder on the seat and somehow the heat caused it to leach chemicals or something. Either way had a detailer check it out and nothing softened it up. Basically what he told me is it is like "trying to uncook food." I can't stand the appearance and need to replace this bad boy. Called a local leather shop and it would be like 3 panels for $500 replacement. So I started thinking I may as well swap the whole seat. I did before on my old car. So far on ebay I've seen full replacement seats for like $400. I also saw the seat bottom leather wrap only for like $130 but it wasn't model specific. How can I fix this everybody? Model is a 2007 Accord Coupe V6.

That is funny because I had the same thing happen in my 07 accord (4cyl, sedan) last spring living in Oklahoma. Both front seats shriveled up and I tried everything to soften it back up. I eventually gave up and went to the junk yard and got two new to me seats for around $400. The car itself was sitting at my job for about 10 days but I figured the sun baked it. I always kept my seats conditioned.

So you were able to find some at your local junkyard? Were you able to call ahead, or how can you find out if one carries it?
