Plans for this buddy seat?

Post by Santa79 »

I was looking for plans to build a rear facing buddy seat to go behind the passenger seat when I spotted this on Fleabay....

The thing is, it's for a LHD T25. And mine is RHD. So... I was wondering if anyone would know if there are any plans/dimensions so I can reverse it and build one (or a very similar one!) for myself!

What you can't see in the photos are the heavy metal brackets and frame that join the 'seat' to the box.

I was wondering how that worked.
I was thinking in my version that I could just use an extendable leg (I have seen them in Ikea) to bolt onto the seat so it sits on the front when the seat is up, and drops down to sit on.
Not so sure though...!
