It looks kinda like the one I am sitting in right now... Only better cushioned. I like that you have the choice of two seatbelt ends that you can plug into...

Nice seats. That is a steal of a price. I just bought two brand new 2008 take out buckets with cloth out of a Honda minivan. I paid $130, but you definately out scored me on those.

Nice upgrade on the seat! I was thinking of changing mine out but it is still comfortable & may just go with a bucket seat cover... That is a photoshop cover shot!

Excellent photos! Could you show where/how you fastened the other side of the sliding bolt?

What kind of fasteners did you use to secure the metal plates? Are they rivets? Screws? Bolts? I see they didn't go all the way through the door and am curious.
If they are bolts or screws, did you add any glue to the process to keep any vibrations from working them out?
Are you going to put a handle on the outside to make it easier to pull open?

I know... questions questions questions...

Keep up the good work!

Nice job. I still cant figure out what to do with my door. Mine is the air operated "barn door" style. I thought about doing something similar to what you did but I would have to join the center together and take the hinge off of the left side. But my problem is, I don't want mine to look like a bus door.

Looks Great Big Bird! I have the same question, how did you fasten the bracket without going thru the door?
tfdfyrman - I am in the process of figuring out what to do with my doors - I have the same air doors you have & will probably combine them as one... I disconnected the air linkage already, just gotta get the left door off the hinges to combine the two...
