Subject: Re: Need meaurement of position of Westy seat tracks
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Crawl under the Westy and look up at the floor. There are threaded nuts
welded in place for the seat rails even if the Westy did not come with
the rails. There are four nuts in the space between the sliding door and
the frame. These will show you where the factory seat position is.
