    hi might sound weird but i have some leather interior from my old are(cough**ROVER**cough) lying around my house in excellent condtion which i cant seem to sell, and have seen these car seat desk chairs you can buy in shops and was just wondering if anyone on here has ever done this convertion if so how easy was it or do you have any links to tutorials, on how to do this as i am planning to have a go at this before i go back to work, but not sure where to start

    thanks

    Why don't you but a cheap 2nd hand desk chair, remove the seat cushions & bolt on your rover seat....

    I did this with a Recaro - makes a very comfortable chair - especially if it still reclines!!!

    Good luck though - took me about 6hrs in total, including fabricating mounts
