Puma Seats in ROW

I've been offered a full set of Puma seats for my 90.

The front seats I'm assuming will just bolt in.

I know the loadspace seats will require modification to the rear wheel box so my plan is to buy this conversion kit and weld it in.

Are there any other parts that I'll need that aren't included in these photos?

Thanks!

I could be wrong in your situation, but in my NAS90 I installed the lock and folds with only the hardware supplied with the seats...no vehicle modifications required.

Sal had the whole thing available a few months back. I believe there may be a few vendors stateside who have them available as well. Either way the pic may help.

I think that's true with the Exmoor seats but these are the Land Rover Puma seats which I believe sit further apart.

Thanks Josh. That pic is what made me ask the question - the parts that I'm worried about are the two L shaped steel pieces and the two flat pieces next to them.

I've been offered all four seats for $2k which seems too good to be true!

Lock and folds should really have the additional support underneath the vehicle, the support bar that goes to the rear xmember, upper bracket for seatbelt, and different interior trim for the seatbelt to go through.

I think the additional support must be the two L shaped bars and the two flat bars in the bottom right of this image.

You're missing a very large piece to it, but you may be fine without.

I plan to put my toddler in the back so don't want to risk anything.

This is the piece you mean? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Defender-F...item339a490eb4

Negative, that's the anchor that appears in the photo you posted.

The Pumas tubs are reinforced with metal that is not available separately. It is the body colored piece seen in both of these photos

That's great. Basically a large spreader plate that reinforces the tub. I guess I could get that fabricated.

Quite possibly, yes. There is a member on here, John, who is going through the install himself. He may have some insight if he sees this thread.

If you google the install you should get links to guides on British and Australian forums. There is some cutting involved but a lot of people overseas have done the install.

Not to be a naysayer but the plates that came with mine were just fine for securing the seat...before I would reconfigure my 15 to 20 year old Defender for a seat...my first concern being my small child I'd drive something else. It's a tractor you can't reasonably make it something that it's not. Just my opinion and food for thought. Good Luck...

I stopped to:
a) stock up on rivets
b) look into spreader plates for tub as I don't like the idea of just aluminium holding the seats.

There was also removal of some tub supports over wheel arch that I want to tweak and refit.

Once I have my seats shipped to me, I'm doing a conversion without cutting the tub.

Are you going to lift the seat brackets off the floor? How are you planning to reinforce the aluminium?

Still in research and development stage for safety issues but been done already. I'm going to sell a kit without cutting a tub soon. Pm me with your contact number to discuss if interested.

For what it's worth, the two brackets in the middle bottom of the picture are the reinforcements for the rear roof pillar that the seat belts bolt in to.
