    I’ve got a drivers and double bench seat up front and I’m looking into something to swap them out for , something like a car rear seat , one that will still retain the three seats with seatbelts , one that doesn’t sit too high - any ideas?

    Nice one - thanks , just tentatively looking , I’m happy with the standard seats but the missus hates them especially on a long journey

    Have you thought of having them reupholstered with more padding and softer leather Daz?

    I’ve forgot what there called but it’s one seat and when your camping you can reverse it. Very expensive but if I had the money I would have done it to my old bay.
     
  9. Front flip seat?? They look cool expensive though around 800 quid or 500 just for brackets :eek:

  12. I put early t25 seats in mine with swivels... improvement. More recently got some good later t25 caravelle seats. Mahoosive improvement and love the armrests! Seat squab, base, is a bit longer, ie more arse area. Have trouble with hip sitting for long periods and it made a big difference. Plus they just slide in if you have late style runners on both sides. If not you can buy them.

  14. I like the single t25 seats with armrests they look cool and are uber comfy!

  19. Years ago, before I had any grey hair I once owned a Bay. I fitted the rear seat from a beetle in as there are three in the family and wanted 3 up front - it sort of worked.

  20. @Dazza you can buy a full length seat that where normally in the back and have it adapted for the front surly someone will have done it.
