OK enough bsing. Great job at recycling using stuff from around. Looks good and is totally different which gets some cool points with me. Like that you kept the original color. You might want to shoot some clear over it though so people using it don't get rust on there back.
It does not look totally finished yet(no stain) he could easily toss some foam on top of the seat and wrap it in some heavy pleather from a local fabric store then staple it down for a finished look. May want to drill a few holes under the tailgate behind the padding for water to drain into.
I like the clear coat idea, she is making some type of padding. It has a sticker on it from Quality Auto Sales Inc. Joneboro Arkansas.
