    Hi there,
    I'm sure there are threads about this topic.
    I need confirmation on the size of the rear seat in a dual cab 73.
    Would the rear third row of seats from standard kombi fit on the pedestal in the DC?

    Any advice or help much appreciated.

    OSF,
    Cheers, i'll keep my eye out.
    It seems your all over it, I'm just starting a 73. What advise do you have on the drop gates rear locking hooks. I have the front but a new set would top it off.
    If tried everywhere to source them, do you know anyone who can manufacture?

    Rear seat in a van is a wider seat then the rear seat in a DC Ute. There is a DC seat for sale and pedestal on ebay its in South Australia. The rear hooks on the gates are hard to get at the beat of times,you pay top dollar for one or a set overseas. If you are lucky to find any good ones at all. I don't know anybody that reproduce the locking hooks. If you buy new gates you have to reuse your existing latches all round.
    Best of luck with the restoration on your 73DC another in the fold. Welcome to the KC Pedr Klein. I have a 72 DC at the paint shop at the moment

    Hey Pedr

    Yeah I don't know of anyone who makes the hooks. The guy who makes the reproduction Hoops that Wayne and I bought also makes the Hook Catches for the front and Hook Guide Blocks. He wasn't doing the hooks themselves though last time I spoke with him. I'll ask him and let you know.
