Man, that IS amazing!. Talk about getting out of the box with ideas. I'm pretty sure a market would be there for upscale seats like this.

Thanks! I was thinking about making and selling these. I did a search on my local craigslist and found office chairs that were nothing special with an asking price of 100+ dollars. I'm sure I could make a little money on the side with these.

Here is chair number 2. From a 1975 Fiat. This one I made for a buddy after we walked around the junkyard and found him a chair he liked.
