looks fantastic, what carpet did you use for it?
The carpet was from eBay megs van mats
It’s a 4 way stretch and easy to use.
Thanks and hope that helps

What rear seat did you use? I'm looking for one and unsure what to use. Thanks 👍🏻
The rear seats are from a caddy life. They fold up to give you the van space back, they are not the pull out type, but only have 4x 10mm headed bolts if you needed them right out.
Local scrap yard did a fantastic deal on seats, seat belts, all fixings, front and rear carpets.

I have loads of pics if you need any help.

Update on rear seat conversion.
Just had seat covers made to match the front leather.
Very happy with the look

Looks really good dude, question for your ply lining, what/How did you fix the main ply side board in place?

I didnt need to as the rear upper seat belt mounts hold the sides in really well, but I would just use small self tapping screws if needed, that’s what was in there when I bought the van with plain ply sides

Due to how tight the ply is in place and the curve of the ply it sit really well, and to be honest when we go away I hang coat hangers off the top of the ply in the rear and it’s never moved

Cheers Andy, it is literally a mine field with different methods of securing the ply line

Looks awesome, How difficult was it to carpet the parts that were not ply?

The carpeting looks grand, could I ask how much you use roughly? Cheers
