Did you have to do any significant modification to the tub for the D2 seats to fit? Did you have them recovered? I thought I saw them being tan on the first page. I'm redoing my interior for a bit more comfort and those seats might be a cheaper alternative to Puma XS seats. Thanks!

Looking good.

What's your plan for the B pillar section behind the front seats?

Also, the rear footwells on the rear tub almost look like they'd interfere with a larger butt in those D2 seats.

I see, thanks for the close ups! are those the stock seat mounts for the D2 seats? Do they sit lower than the stock seats in a ROW 110? Also, as Josh pointed out, are the seat bases further out? Thanks for your input, I'm hoping to do the same interior mods soon.

Glenn,

The seats will be positioned just like the green truck. The seat mounts are stock Disco parts. I dont know if they sit lower than stock ROW middle seats. Disco II are very nice seats. There are s few guys on the forum that have done this with great success.

Thanks Sal.

NAS cage is going to be attached to the frame. The NAS underbody parts dont line up so they have to be heavily modified. Lots of fabrication required to make this cage work.

What about fully custom underneath to tie it into the frame, and forget the NAS stuff?

Never mind - looks like you already started.

I used the NAS parts and modified as needed. I still have to tie the rear cage to the cross member.

So are those manual front seats from a UK D2? What seat rails/ sliders are those? Source?

Thanks
