Default Porsche seat into an office chair

My son wanted to make a 996 seat into an office/computer chair. I told him I would help, as I was hoping this would be a great father/son project. So we set out and started looking for a fair priced pair of seats. Thanks to a 6speeder in Chicago, we were able to get a pair, reasonably priced, with embossed crest in the headrest, nice! Now for the work to begin. I have had a Recaro executive chair in my office for years which has a nice adapter plate. I thought I'd call a Recaro supplier, get an adapter kit and have this thing wrapped up....wrong. I then thought I'd "googled" how to do this, get a simple set of instructions, wrap it up...wrong again.

So, to help anyone thinking of doing this, my son has put together a list of "step by step" instructions on how to make these Porsche seats into office chairs. I hope this helps.

Here is a link:

Would love to do this to my own chair I took out to replace with a Sparco -- but the link seems to be dead. Any chance you could put it up again? Thanks!

Any update on the link to the instructions? Link is dead. I just replaced my stock 997 seats, and I want to "upcycle" them into office chairs... THANKS!

There are the number of options available which you can look for to buy the best chair and desk for your new home if you are still searching for it. Recently, my cousin has got a new lounge furniture set for his new home from the well-known furniture store. If you want, you can have a look at this site, if you want to buy one for yourself too. I am really much impressed by the quality of service the store provides and thinking to buy one for myself too.
