    Tell him to get some Kydex or similar thermoplastic sheet. Basically it will come in a large sheet that you can use a hairdryer or heat gun to soften and mould. A garbage bag and towel over the seat will protect it during the moulding process and it can all be done in situ without any nasty chems or making a mess.

    Result is a hard thermoplastic that wont budge, and you can use thinner layers to add flex in certain spots if needed.

    Its the same stuff they make pistol holsters and axe head covers out of.

    The questions i'd have, are does the car have the proper anchor points for the child seat, and will using one create a drama should the airbag deploy?

    Cover seat in cling wrap. Cover cling wrap seat in tin foil. Make fibreglass mould. Cover fibreglass mould in something soft that can rub against the seat.

    Or just wait till the little cunt doesnt need a baby seat.
