    So about 8 months ago Steve asked me to make a stock car cage around an old chair he had laying around. Well I have been busy, but today, if stock care chair day!!! So since this should be a fun a different build I thought why not share for Steve some of the build. I am hoping to get this done today, but as all projects go it might push into next weekend as well. But we are gunna give it a go. I will post updates as I hit milestones. Let us know what you think about his crazy seat!!!

    Here is the chair and the seat.

    That's going to be a seriously protected office chair...

    Designed to block frying pans and other projectiles from an angry wife for being on TW too long?

    Is the base gonna support all that steel and still roll on the original casters?

    You are correct, the cage, the seat, and the chair are gunna be three separate pieces. That way they can all be changed out or fixed or whatever separately. We will see how the stock wheels hold up, Steve might have to upgrade!!!
