This is my Audi A4 seat mounted above the wheel. At the time I had not seen Oscars wheel well cut down idea. But this way I got some shoe storage next to te steps


An integrated seat belt would have been great but I got such a deal on this seat.
Note that I had to weld a bar across a window to attach the seat belt to my wifeís liking. Yes it is a bit behind the drivers seat but the position and height is great just perfect for looking out of that first window.

A guy recently mounted his passenger seat directly behind the steps. He made a removable cedar platform to go over the steps so the passengers feet didnít dangle.

My drivers seat is fron a Chevy Avalanche. The seats donít match but theyíre both black leather and both comfy.

Peace yíall

Hello Marc
I cut down straight from the chair rail and removed 4.5" then welded in flat plate. There is still 7.5" clearance to the tire. This allowed for line of sight for the passenger to be low enough to not be obstructed by the front upper cap. The bump stop on the front axle has 2.5" travel so even allowing for articulation there should be no chance of contact unless I'm flying off a cliff and then I guess there's bigger issues to worry about! The seat and belt are from a 2018 Kenworth and the cage I welded is installed with 11 grade eight bolts all spaced to bolt through the bus floor structure members. After installing it I had it inspected by CVSE which is our commercial vehicle enforcement here in BC. they questioned my design of the cage and location and when I said the location above the axle was far enough from the front end and being directly over the axle it offered the most passenger protection from front and side impact and the idea of the cage was to protect the passenger from front tire blow out damage they were happy to sign off on it.
A lot of screwing around to make it all fit but very happy with the result. image.jpg
