tis quite expensive, there was also an accord full electric leather one and they had wired a little battery pack up so you could use all the electrics! was £150, all you would need after that is heated seats then you would never be off the computer haha!

Don't need heated computer chair, my "throne" as I call it gets hot enough as it is! Comfy as hell though!

 

As for making one, should be fairly easy!

I was going to do this with mine but I'm running out of places to store stuff that I may never get round to.

I've gained a little bit more space for stuff to be ignored :lol:

LOL quite a few years back my mate and i stole a seat out of my mk2 cavalier and made a racing seat for online racing, the steering wheel and gearstick and pedals and monitor all fitted to a small unit and the real car chair just finished off the experience

A mk2 cavalier seat? How many times did you fall out of it? ;)

They do usually end up there. Some hard cornering is enough to result in handbrake penetration though.

That'll leave a mark! 

 

All I know is I fell asleep as I used to do then woke up on the side of the road after being laid down there, saw the car on its side in the ditch with the trailer we were towing detached and the bar pointing precariously at the window where I had been sat! My dad fell asleep at the wheel! Luckily the trailers brakes engaged when the power was torn away! 

 

I was 6 or 7 years old at the time, never willingly fallen asleep in a car since.

Unfortunately yes! I've actually been afraid to fall asleep in a moving car ever since!

In actually made one of those years ago out of a Civic MB1 (pre-facelift SR) seat. Was excellent, although have to advise that they tend to be back heavy, so are prone to tipping backwards! Especially when you're not actually sitting in it, and just trying to move it.

 

Very very easy to make though, did mine in around an hour I think.

yeah I thought that, im going to try and centralise the weight or make it as far forward as I can so it doesn't tip over!

we mounted our rails to a flat board affair and it did not tip or move at all..

I guess with that you can then position it so the centre of gravity is more central?

We have a new race simulation that has been released recently, been checking it at my mates he has it already, very realistic so when i do the interior in our MB3 i will have spare seats so may make another one for my set up here...
