Trying to score some of these legs, don't want the arms as they're pretty ugly.
and some metal work, drilling,grinding,welding, all should be good practice.
anyone done this before?

weld some old seat rails to the top of an old office chair, should be plenty at your local tip/junk shop
go for ones with steel or alloy bases as car seats are higher and heavier, therefore will tip over easily with flimsy bases.
I used the existing bolts and slotted angle iron for mine.

Get two banana boxes and sit the seat on them. Saves you damaging yourself, the chairs, or both. Try practising all of those skills on something a bit easier to start with
Sell the seats so they don't gather dust, and buy one of these:

Though years back I built one with a Jamex seat and some metal bar welded onto an old office seat base, not hard to do with the right gear

I would recommend strengthening them while you have it all in a workshop if they are plastic.
