Depends. Power seats go for more manual seats go for less. Typically at this yard its around 34-40 dollars.

Cool, so it costs much less to make this, than one already on the market that'* equally as comfortable?

Do you mean a chair like this?

That chair is almost 200 dollars and it doesn't seam very comfortable to me. It doesn't look very appealing to me either. I can make a chair pretty cheap as long as I have a base to use.

A car seat is more comfortable I think. Plus you have a cool conversation piece.

I was thinking about something even bigger.. but seems that one costs almost 200, they'd probably be over 300..

I'd love to have a car seat turned into an office chair, probably something out of a 70s Lincoln or caddy..something soft and comfy..actually, they'd be better turned into a recliner..

I have the passenger seat for my derby car, can you explain to me how to make it into a computer chair? since its way too big to mail LOL

I also have the rear seat im thinking it will need a wooden base under the seat part that goes up to support the back
