Angry Ugh... damn drivers seat!!!!

This past weekend, I was getting in my car, and when I sat down in the seat something snapped... thought it was the mechanism that allowed the seat to tilt back (the handle onthe right hand side of the seat)... but upon further inspection, the metal frame for the seat tore right apart. There appears to be sheet metal in there and it literally tore apart, and continues to do so. So... I guess I'm going to try welding it carefully using a jig to keep the mounting points precise.

Has this happened to anyone else here? Sux being a fat guy man... I weigh in around 300lbs, so its no wonder it gave... but it still sux. Looks like I'm going to have one grey seat amongst the black, in my car for a little while... pisses me off... been such a bad year for my baby. I think it's jealous cause my beater is Ford Tempo
