Model a frame (steel or wooden) off the angle of where the seat originally sits.

I am picturing an MDF or ply box with the base, including driveshaft hump, + a back with the same dimensions as the Commodore rear seat sheet metal. (I don't think that you could use the rear half cut (section) but that'd be easier.)

Do you have a spare body? What is cool is the whole rear cut made into a couch. But you also need the room to put it.

Agreed. Would take up a lot of space, and would be a lot of work, but it'd be awesome, it'd also double as a neat place to store stuff - especially if you cut out the bottom of the boot and extended it to fill the area where the fuel tank normally goes.

I have the seat of a VH Commodore in Cerulean cloth mounted to wooden base, use it as 2nd armchair and I use it for gaming (i.e. GT5 with pedals/wheel mounted to a small table).

This is how I meant it, not the other way around. Only ever seen them like this and they look really good.
