On the back of the seat there is the sheet metal. At the bottom on each side it has a radius section that transitions from the rails. Does your jump seat have the same pattern? Does the middle and rear seat have the same radius sheet metal pattern? Also in order for the front seat to clear the map table what is the measurement from the top a the seat down to the bottom of the sheet metal?

Ok, so if anyone needs the jump seat sheet metal measurements I have them. My next question, is the back sheet metal pattern the same on the drivers, middle, and rear-with the rear being wider? I would imagine that because the seats don’t fold up it shouldn’t matter. I just think it looks more professional with the radius flange.

1. Yes, all the seat backs have the same transition detail, from the sheet metal backing, to the vertical tubes.

2. Someone has previously cut off the floor mounting legs off my seat, but the legs were 31-1/2 apart, center to center.

3. The rear seat bottom tubes are 45-3/4 wide (outside to outside) and 14-7/16 apart front to back.

I guess my rear seat frame isn’t too bad to save. The bottom springs are shot, but good for dimensions if anyone needs the measurements.
