Hi,

my CF230 Trailblazer (1978) is fitted with swivel seats at the moment - I've used seats out of a Peugeot 806 fitted to swivel plates on custom bases - but they are big seats and have to be carefully moved to swivel without hitting anything. I've got sports seats from a Peugeot 309 gti fitted to another model on Renault Espace swivel plates, and they turn more easily as they don't hit anything until the seat back gets close to the steering wheel.

I have just removed some swivel seats from my cf1 camper. I don’t need them anymore so I would sell them. They are not the prettiest seats though! I think the previous owner had to move the seat box over so that the seat wouldn’t hit the handbrake. They were bodged on to the seat bases with makeshift extensions as they didn’t quite line up.

Jake - did you sell those seats?
