Seats and Seatbelts
I'm working on seating and would like to bounce some ideas off the group. I want to be able to carry and sleep a total of 8. I plan 4 permenant bunks/beds and a convertable dinette and bunk area for 4 guests.
The dinette will be fairly conventional on the outside, but I plan to build it around two of the original bus seats with all of the padding and plywood removed. The reason is that this bus came with seatbelts so this will give me seatbelt attachment points that are essentially the same as originally manufactured. Anyone done anything like this?
For the second seating area in the kids room, I plan on cutting the backs off of two seats and then attaching the bucket seats from a 1990 Olds Silhouette. Again, has anyone used original bus seat frame to attach car seats in their bus?
