When the front seat becomes damaged beyond repair and needs to be removed permanently, a lawn chair makes for an excellent replacement. The straps that make up the seat back of the lawn chair are great shock absorbers for unusually bumpy rides. A makeshift seat belt can easily be fashioned from two long pieces of duct tape fastened together. For larger drivers, a bungee cord can be added as a seat belt extender. Also, a thick towel can be used as a seat belt cushion for drivers with sensitive skin.
