Time to fit the seats, theses were , just for a change purchased from ebay, as I remember they were originally out of a Triumph herald. Just the right size for my build.

A frame was fabricated out of 50mm angle, and was welded to the box section in the cab (photos below will explain better), then it was strengthened with various pieces of angle from the original cab.Once fully welded I cut out a section for the prop shaft. Just a bit more welding required with my mig as soon as I get another bottle of argon.

You might have noticed that the vertical sections of box section that were against the door pillers have now been cut out, they were touching my arm when sitting in the seat, sure this would have irritated the shit out of me when driving so they were cut out.
