hey all,

Im looking at doing a 2 seat conversion in my vs ute. I have done a bit of a search and most threads on here are about converting from 2 seater to 3 seater.

So I was wondering if there is anyone who wants to trade there 2 seater setup with centre console, handbrake etc for me 3 seater setup?

cheers,

patrick

two seaters use a tbar? 3seater use a collem shift....so you would need some 1 doing a two seater to 3 seater convertion with a collem shift(wow i wish you lucck as i dont thing many ppl go from2seat up to 3 seats and as 3seaters utes are way less popular.just go to the wreckers and get two fron seats for round $100 and see if you can recoup somthing on ebay with you 3 seats

you only have to change the passenger seat or are you after higher class seats?
and the tbar doesn't go straight in cause there is no mound for it so you will have to either use an after market shifter or make spacers.
however if its manual it will be easier as they are already floor shift.

The column auto gearbox selector shaft sits in a different position to the T/bar aswell.

sorry guys forgot to mention that its a 5 speed Manual.

I would like higher class seats but most importantly id prefer a centre console.

I gather the standard "bucket" seats just bolt straight in?

vp senator & VS Ute
I rang Q!ld Transport about the aftermarket seats in my VS ute and was told they needed to be inspected and certified with a mod plate to be legal. I was asked at the time is it a 2 or 3 seat ute.
shown on the manufacturers plate. I told him it shows 2 seat capacity and was then told if it was a 3 seat then it must be certified and mod plated if it was changed from 3 seat to 2 seat to keep it legal. Might pay to ask Qld Transport. Cheers.
