Your new seats look really nice. We just finished putting in new seat a few weeks ago as well. I was curious how you mounted your seat belts. Are they attached to the seats or the threaded holes at the base of the rear wall? Our seats came with seat mounted belts, but we also have the original mounted belts, too.

I like your console. I'm considering doing something like that at the base of our pass-through door. What did you make it out of?

Thanks,
Michael

The seatbelts are attached to the seat bases, but I had to reinforce the whole seat base and floor to ensure they are strong enough. Here in Australia, we need an Engineers certificate for changing seat belt mounts and seat mounts. Luckily for me these bolt onto the same bases as the old ones. The seat bases are bolted to the floor with M10 Gr12.8 bolts, with 75x50x5m plate to reinforce the floor. The corner where the seat belt attachment is gets two bolts and a 100x50x5mm plate.

The console is made from 10mm marine ply, covered in carpet inside and out. We had some leather left over from covering the dash, so used that for the lid.


Wow bunny hopping ...hope you both had seatbelts on ...great pictures

Yes, always have our seatbelts on, they held us nicely in place, we tied everything down on the bed when driving, so apart from the pillows, and coconut we had left on the bed which ended up on the floor, everything else stayed put.

It is a lot quieter now with the new insulation, Trish was amazed at the difference when she got in the truck. Still have to see what it is like on the road, might do some measurements again, as I still have the results from the first sound tests we did.

Sorry if slightly offtopic, but I wonder how it will work to have tree seperate
seats in the cab of the Unimog? (Middle seat instead of a centre console) Can it be made to fit properly, with enough space for the gear levers? Maybe to tight ?
The centre seat could maybe have enough room for a child, teenager or a small adult?


I wonder how a secure approved 3-point seat could be installed for this
middle seat. This can probably be solved though.
