After flip flopping on selling the van, we are back at it for making improvements.
One of my main problems with our current downstairs sleeping arrangement was the manual fold down bench seat. It wasn't terribly hard to fold down, but the wife couldn't do it. I had started to look into powering it with actuators.
Also, we have been considering a fixed top. Conveniantly a van popped up in a local junkyard that was your classic late 90's converted "luxury" van. We went up and my wife loved the idea of a fixed top, even tho this one wasn't high enough, it got the point across.
Luckily, there was also a powered bench seat. SO my brother and i went back up there yesterday to strip it of some parts.
Also picked some lights
I had not measured the seat before bringing it home, as i was determined to make it work regardless.
Short story short, it was a bolt on replacement. Van was a 99 and my seat was purchased in 2016(?) and they were made for each other.
Still need to extend the third section to accept my pad. Or remove it and have that section separate. Have not decided yet. But am very pleased with the score!
