    I did this for a while in my GQ wagon, then ripped it out. I have a SS watertank behind the middle seats, plus a cargo barrier. What I found was the removal of the seats only gave me a height advantage of having the seats in place of about 125mm from memory. I had a flat ply floor on a 25mm rhs frame, and really found the area was not any more useful with the tank in the way. maybe you are looking to open the entire rear of the vehicle from back of front seats to rear doors? I hate to be the scare monger, but the old RTA will nail you for seat removal as well especially if the seat belts are left in place. The 'nightmare' VASS' engineer i consulted wanted to legally turn my 7 seater into a 2 seater because of hardware on the cargo barrier - ended up not using him and mine is now a registered 5 seater. Food for thought.

    I believe the set I have are the only ones of its kind he made. Yours might be the second!
    There is a tiny bit of grinding involved too. I have photos at home if need be.
    Sounds Awesome. I'm travelling back from the Flinders now and will be keen to sort this out. Can you pm me a price John and we will get it done mate. Eric can you link me your build thread cause I'm lazy. Lol.

    Thanks guys

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Hodge, looking at getting pair of recovery point from threedogs, been stumbling around the forum in an attempt to find your build thread (slowly finding my way, but a bit slow to get me head around it all). Could you give me a link of your build so I can have a look at what recovery points/fitting method you ended up with. Mine 08 GU IV wag with genuine steel bull bar / air bag compatible, Recovery hook bolts up to under side chassis rail(RHS). Thinking of the L shaped design (pic 1) or must say do like the look of the "T" profile build.
