    Has anyone tried to fit none standard, eg. Ford galaxy, captains seats in a lunar newstar?

    I think I could do with the arm wrests as nowadays my arms start to hurt after a long time driving and being able to rest them on something would seriously help.

    if the seats sliding runners line up with the seat box frame then any seats could be fitted by redrilling the mounting holes.


    my opinion only :thumb:

    As PJ says .. but a step further.......

    After spending many many years as a hobbyist custom vehicle builder, I long ago came to the conclusion that given a bit of effort, a hacksaw, a stick and mig welder, anything can be made to fit anything !! ( 2 x V6 transits and a V8 100E van were interesting ones :Wink: )

    do remember if the new seats have swivel bases, the resulting seat will be higher. Check it out first.

    or even a Vauxhall Cresta 'straight 6' shoehorned into a bedford CF van with a ZF 5 speed box.

    worked fine and fast until the shortened prop shaft snapped :Sad:
