Mk7 front seats (single) on Mk5 seat base?

Postby maciejd » Sun Jul 28, 2013 7:07 pm

Hello

I have to buy and mount rear seats for my Transit and I've got possibility to get original Mk7 rear seats for a good price.
I'd be nice to replace the fronts seats as well to match the pattern but... is there any possibility to get rid of the original Mk7 rails and adopt the seat for the Mk5 base somehow? Has anyone tried this?

Thanks in advance for any tips :)

Maciej
