ya i've made them b4. nothing specail thou just some euro 6in1. they were comfertable. but you do have to be carfull of the occupants if you don't weld the rings. or if it gets bunched or somthing like that as well you may tare a ring. thou that would be rare. took a car crash to mess mine up. and then only 4-5 rings were damaged.

what type of information are you looking for in makeing them?

Oh man. The first thing I thought of was how insanely HOT that would be when you first sat down. But that might just be a Florida thing. Maybe where you live your car doesn't get boiling hot all the time, even in so-called "winter." For me in the south, it would be potentially dangerous to the posterior. Very Happy

Sounds really cool, though, if you don't have to worry about frying yourself!

no pictuers that i know ware are atm.

hot yes, they can get warm. i would think if you lived in arazona or some ware like that you might want to make them out of rubber instead of metal.

My next maille project will involve covers for my car's headrests. I've been toying with the idea of putting a layer of chainmaille in something like a leather jacket so you could make a sort of inlay. Cut a cool design in the outer layer of leather to see the metal underneath. My first attempt will be to start with a bottom layer of black cloth, then either dragonscale or simple euro and then the top layer of leather with a dragon emblem cut into the front and back. I'm still toying with grommeting and how to do the sides etc, but I think it'll be cool when done. Then I can go to Hot Topic and sell some designs for a cool mil. Smile
