Re: Will 2008 Ford Minivan seat replace seats 1987 Sportsmob
Finally took some time to look at my 1987 swivels. The seat attaches by 4 bolts to the swivel From side to side they are 8" apart, and 11" apart from back to front. I need to get the junk yard to pull the minivan seats so I can look at the bottoms. Shouldn't be to difficult if either weld on a plate or a frame to bolt to the swivel, but won't know until I look. I forgot to look, but these junk yard leather front seats may be electric - don't know if that may derail my plan as I don't know how the electrics would work on these bases. Hope to take a better look this coming week.
No need to worry about the seat belts and retractors in the seats on an '87 as they are mounted on the B pillar.
Gnarvan - thanks for the reminder on safety and stoutness. DIYers may tend to give safety a second thought in their solutions. If anything this project will be over engineered if I decide to tackle it.
