Long Winters in the Midwest

When the winters get long here in the Midwest, you can find the weirdest things to occupy yourself. I got it in my head to reuse my used upholstery from my 65 mustang, so I purchased an old theater seat, then realized my old upholstery was replaced for a reason (nasty), but by then the idea was in my head. This is the before and after, I'm planning on taking this chair to the two car shows I enter in the summer; it's suppose to mimic the interior of my car, not the best, but kept me busy.

That's really cool. We're going to paint up a couple steel folding chairs like our cars for shop chairs.

That would have been smarter and lighter on my part to think of first. I like how my chair turned out, but it's not as portable as I would like, the sucker is pretty heavy.
