This im sure this has been done before but this is what im planning on using for one of my 1/16th scale 1951 kafer vw beetle. Im gonna make it a lowrider and want to make some crazy seats for it.

This is what I want but probably will not be this crazy:

this is what I have from a few shampoo bottles:

these will be the seats, the bottom and the top, Ill build them up with more styrene that is the plan then add foam shaped like bottom tufted upholstery.

Wow, that's clever.  How will you get something to stick to that kind of plastic?

super glue and 5 min epoxy, Ill have post of it when I finally get to the project and list it under the big scale work in progress. I'm planning on using foam and mirrored poster board but may have to do a lot of build up around the edges, both ca and epoxie will do the trick.
