hey fellas check out this swivel i've been able to score off my buddy who just took out one of his captains chairs in his van!

okay so i've perused some of the swivel seat forums here and what not and gathering a few of my own ideas but i was wondering what sort of ideas you guys have right off the bat looking at this. gonna work? looks like it needs to come down in height big time. dont actually have the thing yet he's shipping it to me asap.

i'd be more concerned with fitting your seat to it without the bracket from teh seat it was mounted to. you may not need to lower it.

You'll need to widen the plate so that it contacts the seat rails as well as lower the height, otherwise your passenger will be rubbing the headliner. It's nice to get the swivel pre-made, but it may not save you much fab work. Feel free to check my build thread for how I did mine from scratch. Others have done it this way with great results.

Good luck!
