SR4 or similar with shock mitigation?

Looking for some insperation. I may have the chance to pick up an SR4 that would need some work, I would like to build it up as a little bay runner but i really do not like the console that come standard.
my preference would be for a zodiac open pro styled standing cockpit but I can't seem to find any photos of a similar set up.
Another idea i played with was a single shock seat and with the amount of love these hull's get and the amount that are refused I find it funny that no one has done it.

so I suppose I'm looking for two things:

1. Any photos of a 4M rib with shock seats.
2. photos of non conventional SR4 configurations.

Yup - Baby Blue's a 4.7 Searider - Console is handcrafted from plywood and painted in finest weathershield paint.
The suspension seats are Coastal Pro ones as they allowed me to have 2 x 25L fuel tanks under them.
