Recaro seats picture request.

Has anyone put recaro seats in their defender? I tried finding pictures but I can only find ones I find are of new ones that they instal in the factory. I was thinking of fitting some recaro trophies or LS seats and I don't know how they will fit as their isn't much room to recline them. Post up some pictures if you have any.

Hoosier, did you get the fabrication of the roof portion worked out? Progress looks great

Got it back to shop after getting cab top and rollcage sorted. Finished dropping seats one inch and now I need to get the underseat fuel tank and engine position finalized.

Did you modify the bases at all or just drill into the seat box?

When I purchased the recaros, seat brackets for the d90 were also purchased. I recently modified the brackets to drop the seats about 1", but they still bolt into the same captured nuts as the OEM seats.
