    My wife tells me the kombi (late bay) seats are uncomfortable on long trips. I read somewhere that T3 seats fit a late bay - are these a straight swap or would mods be needed?
    Also, are mods needed to fit inertia reel belts in the front?

    77 on is a straight fit for t3 seats. they ARE better. captains chairs being slightly better again.
    haven't compared the belts but the retractable have a simple angle bracket to allow for the reel

    These ones look like great examples, and reasonably priced as well!

    I'm sure "KC Express" would be able to sort reasonable freight from the upcoming Sawtell Bus Stop.

    Looks like my bay isn't late enough as it's a 74 :(

    the t3 wont be a direct replacement without some mods.
    just means a bit more work to modify bases of any seats you choose
    be careful that seat squab isn't too high.
    or possibly drill out tracks and weld in t3 ones for the t3 option

    How about inertia reel belts. Are any mods needed to fit them?

    Marty,

    T3 seat belts bolt into the B pillar in two places (the lowerbolt for the reel and the upper bolt for the guide) - not the seat base as many bay retractiable belts do.

    This could cause an issue unless you can get an angle bracket that would allow you to fit it to the seat base - otherwise you just cant get a big washer and nut on to support the reel.

    Curious. Do the T3 seat straight swap into a later bay?

    I did read that.
    Apparently my brain skipped it though.
    Thanks cbus. :oops:
