Ed, no such luck. We adjusted the seat backs to the 'vertical', then tried to slide the seats away from one-another only to discover that the seats were already at their ends-of-travel (fully back or, as rotated, as close to the driver's and passenger's sidewalls as they will go). See photo.Winston,
It looks do-able but a knee knocker for sure. I suppose if the seat backs were a bit more upright, you might gain another 5 or 6" between the seats.
We concur with TGBLAKE that the doors aren't a factor . . . depending on seat adjustment (i.e. how far back the seat is and/or how 'vertical' the seat back is, you may encounter the "A-post" or steering wheel while swiveling.It looks like if you tilt and slide the passenger seat correctly you could swivel 180 without opening the door? What about driver?
These bases and swivels do not appear to have any left/right offset. There will be a 'rotating offset' depending on how far "forward or back" ones seat is prior to 'swiveling'. But when the seats are locked forward, we think you'll discover that the arm-rest is just as distant as it was before modification.On a passenger lower seat base - any chance it moves you closer to the door too? The seat is just far enough from the door that it is uncomfortable to use it as an armrest.
