What to do with removed seats?

So, what does everyone else do with the seats you remove? I hate for these things to end up in a land fill! No one seems to want them though...

Re: What to do with removed seats?

I'm planning to repurpose some of the steel for framework (stairwell, tank supports), and foam for mattresses/seats. The rest of the steel I will likely recycle/scrap.

Great ideas guys, thanks! I probably won't be making napalm, but I will definitely make some calls to my local bus operators.

Re: What to do with removed seats?

it's all up to each person... our seats only had 2 legs each, so we took some legs off of the bad seats and put on the ones we kept....we put 4 seats back in bus, backs against the walls (right behind the driver) facing each other,,, then we kept 2 more seats that we use as chairs while we at camp or in our yard..... they make awesome seats outside, wipe them off when it rains or cover them if its hot....
they are just kinda hard to move by myself... lol,,, gotta say they are a GREAT WAY to get people to stop and talk to ya!!!!

Re: What to do with removed seats?

I was lucky and sold mine.
Some would show up and was asked what they could do with them?
I showed them how I could bolt the left and right two seats together and make a seat for sitting on( though we have some really big people here, so showed them how to make a center leg for more strength so it wouldn't bend); cruising in a shop or porch.
The two seats I showed another with the seat belts where they could put Little legs on the end and bolt it in the back of their pickup truck; using the trailer hitch pins to lock them down. Need to remove them pull the pin and pull the hitch pin out and lift the seats out.
