Subject: Re: Front Seat Sizes - a measurement needed
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
From what I can tell ..............I've used 85 seats in 80s models.
Standard Vanagon 80 seat on Westy swivels 83s.
There are just a few years that had better, more padded seats or
different headrests or no headrests.
Some later seats had skirts on them (mostly the velour types).
