Removable seat pods?

Where can you get removable seat bases . Anyone got experience of such systems that allow them to be removed and replaced easily?

I got a stainless steel plate with blinded bolts made up a few years ago. I installed it as per this link

Deck Matrix

It has worked very well for me as I have the following options

1) Open rear deck
2) Single Jockey seat,
3) Double jockey seat
4) Bench seat
5) Bottle rack

There is a fair bit of work in it though

Another option is to install deck rails and you can slide seats in and out and change position as much as you want.

Scotseats sell a system but it isn't cheap, maybe old bus system would be worth looking at?

Failing that, deck inserts are worth a look as you can seal them up relatively easy (I would epoxy them in flush) and will provide a glued and mechanical bond. You better be sure your deck is solid before going this route and I would use maybe 8-10 fasteners per single jockey seat.

Deck inserts

I have some custom made deck inserts with a blind internal M6 threaded hole, pm me if you are interested and I can send a picture with measurements.
