Our PMs have air bags in the seats? Wow, technology seems to have moved ahead of what I'm used to.We went to 2 Van Conversion shops to have swivel seats installed. They would not do it because of the air bags in the OEM seats. One looked into removing some of the foam in the new seats and transplanting the air bag but would not attempt it after some investigation.
Not to threadjack but how did you add an armrest to the passenger seat?The impetus for starting to look into new seats was the passenger seat in our van had no armrest. Due to cost and other road blocks we just added the armrest to the passenger seat.

The type of swivels we’re talking about don’t make underseat storage unusable. Some aftermarket pedestal swivel seats do, but this would mean no airbag and liabilities for the installer, so they won’t install them for you.Another thing I've heard is that a swivel makes the space under the seat unusable. I don't have my PM yet and so I don't know how much room there is under the seat for use anyways, but if there was some room, I was thinking of putting a house battery there. I think I also read somewhere that the jack and tirechanging tools are under the passenger seat and that an added swivel means those items can't be stored there anymore--but this is just hearsay.
Thank you for sharing that link. We don't get up so early on the left coast! And now I have a new word "fabricobbling":laugh:Try this link: http://www.promasterforum.com/forum/showpost.php?p=566434
I’d only attempt it if I could return the swivel or had some fabricobbling or welding skills.
I stole it from AvE-- a fine Canadian YouTuber. His channel is a goldmine of spoonerisms malapropisms portmanteaus and other linguistical hi-jinks. There are online dictionaries devoted to his "AvE speak".And now I have a new word "fabricobbling":laugh:
DHL is supposed to be bringing my big buy this afternoon from the UK. It would have been here yesterday but for the weather. Now the main road leading to my road is blocked in both directions from the 1’ Of snow last night and electric wires down so I won’t be leaving home today and DHL won’t be dropping by either !I have the optional bin under the driver’s seat, a CTA swivel on it and a Sportscraft lowered base. The bin still fits although you loose the attachment bar across the front which I substituted with a rod I had. I have the same on the passenger’s seat except I used a Sportscraft driver’s side swivel and the tool box still fits, no problem. Don’t try to cheap out with some boat seat swivels, its a life you are risking and these swivels are made and tested to be safe. Many swivels don’t have the center opening for the wires, avoid them too. Someday someone will find a supplier in Europe and order them directly brining the cost down considerably.
Another seat swivel thread,I'm planning on getting the Swivel Seat Adapter for the passenger seat. It's $300 plus shipping, so I'm not sure what's really less expensive than that.
