Probably Doubling up with seat posts.
Finally new front seats arrived today.
Ex Toyota Hiace Commuter 10 seater
In really good nick, only a small amount of mod work to bolt them down and could even fit a couple of rails for adjustment.
They both recline back to about 60 Deg and are only 855 wide at the base.
They are covered in material but I might cover them in black vinyl for weather proofing.
Only cost $210.00 delivered, ;D ;D ;D ;D
Took some pics below.

The seats look good but their legs are way too tall.

They have nice frame under the seat which can be modified.

Nice collection, are they all new? I'd like a new speedo but didn't know they were available.
Interested to see how you mount them.

Yes they are all new, look on the Holden UK web site they have a large range.
Iam going to mount them as the photo shows in that config directly behind the steering wheel.

So nice to see a full set of new gauges 8)

There is a number printed below the speedo needle, pretty sure there are different gearings between Mini and Moke speedo's. Not sure about Holden ones though :-\
No Matter, there never really accurate anyway  ;D

Yeah the gearing will be different no matter what speedo I choose, as I am putting 13"x 7 Superlites  175x 50 series tyres on her with a 3,6 diff ratio.
There is a bloke who can re-calibrate the speedo once I know how much it is out on a run.

Yep, it all ties in. Good to hear your going to follow it up and get it calibrated properly. I  have no idea how its done, just know it should be done if its out more than 10% ish  ;)
I do like the Navman option for how much its out though :P :P  :) :) Not that Ive seen one out that much :-X
