jump seat backrest frame differences

I have two kinds of jump seat backrests and I am wondering if anyone is familiar with these differences and can tell me if perhaps mine were installed wrong or meant for another application. If you look at these pictures the one on the left with the black trim is what I have and the one on the right are a different style.

The black one has a curved leg with a higher top mount point. As installed, keeping the backrest essentially vertical puts the mount point above the tub capping and they used a little extender/strap to mount them. If you forced the feet all the way into the corner of the tub, the mount does lower to where you might be able to bolt it to the capping but the backrest tilts forward - surely not right.

On the other hand the grey one seems to fit perfectly and even has a slot instead of a hole to ease installation. It seems like a better fit in general for the defender.

Is the black one perhaps meant for some other model, or installed wrong? I don't want to change it since I already have holes for their current location, but I am curious about the difference.

The jumpseat with the "bent" arms is from a 110, the other from a 90.
Exmoor sucks, don't buy that stuff.

Thanks Carey

So does a 110 have lower wheel arches or higher cappings than a D90? I would not have thought so. Or put another way, do the upper mounts mount directly to the capping or a bit higher on a 110?

thanks,
charles

Strange, my NAS110 ones are bent like the first picture, but the holes for the capping support are slotted and look exactly like the other ones. On a NAS110 the rear mounts to the capping through the window trim, just below the sliding windows.

Mounted with little straps/extenders down to the capping, or directly to the capping?
