Introduction: Car Seat Recliner
This was an old car seat I had in my shed.
I was going to build a PC based racing frame, it would have been on springs with a
force feedback steering wheel attached to the frame to give
Unfortunately I never got hold of an Arc welder to make the frame:-(
Anyway here's what I made, and will now use on a regular basis.
Step 1: The Materials
Car seat, 4 x panels, 4 x 2" x 4" wood blocks, 28 wood screws, 4 x castor's,
Step 2: The Base
The base has to be strong, and well constructed to hold the car seat.
Step 3: The Build
Make sure you have enough clearance for the seat to slide back and forth on it's runners.
You must slide the seat forward when you recline the back.
Otherwise you could tip over.
Step 4: The Style
You can make the support frame higher or lower, it's up to you.
It can be used as an office chair, you can add arms, if you like.
Step 5: Whats Next
I will have to look for an electric seat from a BMW or Merc.
Just to see if I can automate the process.
