Hey yall,

I've decided on seats with integrated belts...so I don't need my original Kingsley seats but I'd hate to sell them as scrap.

First person with $50 takes 'em home.

Located in Greenville Texas.

Ready. Set. Go...

Hi Ken. Those are sweet. Any idea what it might cost to ship them to Seattle, WA, 98104? Hope you and yours are safe and well. Kind regards. David.
 
Hi David. I haven't a clue. If you are really interested I will weigh them and get a freight quote, but I suspect that it won't be cheap.
Hi Ken. Yes, indeed, I suspect the shipping will be cost prohibitive for me. So, please don't go to that work on my account. But, I wouldn't surprised if there are folks around the country who could and would pay for those to be shipped. Cheers. David.

We will see, I was eying them over today thinking they could make decent shop chairs for beers and oogling the projects...
 
Curious, are there cracks in the plastic at all? I hav those seats in my Kingsley but not in best of shape and I am only up here in Colorado....

I will double check in the morning but to my knowledge the plastic pieces are pristine. The upholstery does show wear, they are out of a long abandoned coach.

The pictures are exactly as they were removed from the coach, I have done absolutely nothing to clean them. I am betting between a wet vac and steam cleaner they can be made to look almost as good as new.
 
I hope you’ll share that install with us. I’m considering the same thing and would sure appreciate watching your progress. Do you have to modify the stock bases to mount them?
 
I’d be happy to document the method I use when the time comes. There is a method described here http://www.palmbeachgmc.com/seats.html
But to be honest I don’t trust it in an accident.

My initial plan is to weld a reinforced replacement “swivel plate” that spans the Honda mounts. Furthermore, I plan to reinforce the floor where the seat mounts.

I will just have to see where it goes when I get to that point.

I'm reviving (hopefully) this thread. Did you ever install the Honda seats? I just bought some and will be doing this in the next month or so. I've seen the link above, which is great.

You might not get a response. He hasn't logged on in nearly a year; I think I recall he moved and had to sell his coach.
