Hi im getting closer to having to deal with the issue of seating. I just wondered what solutions people had come up with before me. I was thinking of a bench seat arrangement welded directly to the frame... sound any good?

If this is for the front seats, how are you going to get to the hand brake and what about the central seat belt mounting?

If it is for the back, I fitted a Metro rear seat to my old Land Rover, so that it could still fold up. I had to fabricate a rear support for it to clip into, though.

Now then as for seating depending on your frame (mines a 34" waist she keeps on shrinking my jeans!) There must of been smaller folk back in the old days. Standard mini seats ideal size but no comfort. Metro types when did you see a nice pair of these. i had citoen AX fronts in the 4x4 scamp from jono. i changed these for Land Rover Defender seats-Narrow but pricey second hand. Just bought some Kia Sedona second row seats found a bit to wide i liked the arm rests and the fact that they swiveled but not in a scamp. cut all the crap off you still need a roof hump like a GT40!. A few in the club have SAAB seats, Volvo 343 seats were good (heated as are the SAABS) if you can find them these days. The problem lies with the roof bars.That or your sat on the floor! Perhaps we need to go full soft top. Or no top eh James! Take a look at Daywoo (yes i know) matiz nice and narrow odd colour though! Dont knock the bench iv just had a look, may have to put the hand brake on the drivers side but i believe Captain Rick has done this to his! See what the rest say.- 4x4Rob. (dont write off the 2cv the seating is super soft very light and cheap with loads of trim kits availiable!) cheers

You can always mount the hand brake on the dash Merc style. I'm thinking of doing that on mine to get rid of the massive hole that's been made in the floor for the current handle.

Hand brake? Go High-drolick, it's the future. Like Garlic bread but with bigger (and parallel) darkies!
