Car Seat to Office Chair Conversion Kit?

Anybody know if there is a kit whereby you can take a car seat and convert it into an office chair?

I want to do this with my M3 Vader passenger front seat.

Thanks...

Never heard of such a thing before. But I guess the office chair looks good in the office itself, not in an M3.

Not sure if there's a kit, but if you look underneath a typical office chair... all of the parts needed are held on by 4 bolts (those 4 bolts connect the heardware to the chair itself). So all you'd have to do is probably get a sheet piece of wood, find a way to attach it to the bottom of the seat. Then bolt the 4 bolts in. Youll be good to go.

Not sure if these guys have a conversion kit, but if not, you might see something else you like:
