    Fitting a Middle Centre seat in the perentie

    hi guys - i'm looking to install a centre seat in the Perentie from Exmoor trim as my wife and i are currently planning on a trip and bringing our newborn along (the trip won't be until he can sit in a forward facing seat.

    I'm hoping for some advice on the following.

    1.) Where can i get the seat installation engineered in Sydney.
    2.) Can i order the 3 point inertia reel belt that suits the centre seat from the UK and have it professionally installed or will i need to source something here. If i need to source from here where should i get the belt from?
    3.) Given this is a hardtop 3 door with a bulkhead is there anyway the child seat anchor point can be easily affixed without a crab bar? Failing this i'm looking at installing a simple hoop rollbar for added safety - i would presume that i could request a child anchor point as part of this? Thoughts?

    Now i know 3 across the front might not be many people's idea of comfort but we're willing to put up with this provided we can be all approved and legal.

    Cheers

    Thanks beast - just had a look at their website - they seem like they may be able to help. I know the seat is fine as the mounting points are ok but the seatbelt and anchor point arrangements have me puzzled.

    The Army moved the seats approx. 20mm inboard ( you can see this by the plugged original holes in the seat box) I guess to give more elbow room.
    The downside is that a standard County or Defender middle seat will not fit without moving the seats back to their original position.

    Middle seat

    Middle seat fits fine without disturbing drivers and passenger seat.
    I did this mod over a year ago, only difference is I am using standard lap seat belt, not the type your thinking of using.

    Must have just been mine that had the seats moved. I'll check out some at the next auction.

    Thanks Bruce - yes it was your post somewhere else I read that made me sure it would fit. Nearly impossible to find the centre seat here though will have to order from the uk. Lap belt will probably be ok as will be used for a child seat but would be good to have the 3 point for future years.

    Might be a modification, as when I removed my passenger seat there were no blanked off holes.

    But now you have me thinking of how beneficial this modification might be...
