Rear fold down seats in Prado & Pajero - althernative uses?

I now have 2 sets of rear fold down seats for both our old Pajero and our new Prado that are not likely to be used in the future. In the early days of the Pajero we used them regularly to carry kids, but they have now become surplus to requirements. I stripped them out to make more room for carrying gear and installing drawers and now they are simply taking up room in the shed.
Has anyone come up with ideas for making use of such seats for other purposes or know whether they might be a market for them? I cannot imagine that I am the only one with surplus seats and was wondering what I should do with them. Throwing out a brand new set of Prado rear seats goes against the grain!

I still have kids so no help there. I can recommend calling up a few 4x4 repair shops and tell them you have Prado seats and you can have them for $x.

I have also got a perfectly good set of seat, for the rear of the Pajero. If you come up with an answer, let me know. By the way, the holes in the top of the wheel arches where the seats attach are great for installing the support for the shelves or drawers.

I have a few old double bus seats. I cut one in half and extended one to make a 3 seater for sitting outside under the verandah. No recline.

In the 90/95 series the centre and rear seats fold down to a bed. I use a 25mm foam over the top and have hard good night sleeps. Could be used as visitors bed

Make a bracket to fix them in 1 position and attach chains to them, they make a great verandah swing.

We used to have a set of old Falcon bucket seats as workshop seats. Really comfortable. Might look at doing the same with the 3rd row seats from the Patrol when I take them out.
