fitting the fold up seats to a bongo that was made with a bench seat will be dificult as it won't have the mounts

Its a difficult conversion to do - I know AVA leisure have done it for some people (not cheap though).

I wanted to do the same as I was given a fold up seat, but as said long rail Bongos don't have the mounting points fitted behind the trim panels

I asked the question and got the answer halfway down the second page of this thread.

AVA did it for me. An excellent job with the seat mounted on the wheel arch swappable with a kitchen unit but not cheap. If there is any interest I will fish out the paperwork and advise of cost or phone Vaughan at AVA direct.
