My van at work! Sorta!

Post by Vantasia on Mon Oct 05, 2015 6:46 am

Happy to show my van at work with me hauling band gear to gigs, one of the reasons I decided to get another early, no better feeling than going down the road to a gig for my band that plays a lot of old hippie songs in a vintage van!  Also a pic of my new privacy curtain, simple tie-dye sheet and spring loaded rod!  
The gear...

The curtain...

Thanks, Sure!  That's one of those Moon sparkle steering wheels on a Grant adaptor.

Floor mat is just Lowe's carpet runner, Suburban seats, and typical cluttered garage shelves in background, who doesn't have those?? LOL  Other idea stuff: look close at the speaker grill...two-4-inch speakers mounted on a scrap of masonite for the front left/right channels, sounds fine, no need to cut doors or add boxes, the rear speakers and an under seat Clarion sub woofer provide all the bass I need...

Not a Chevy Suburban, there's a seat company called Suburban Seats and they make narrow seats that fit Jeeps, step vans and vintage vans. Great Price for brand new seats. Vantasia can fill you In...

Yes, thanks, I should have been more clear on that!  They are from a commercial vehicle seat supplier called Suburban Seating Co.  
http://www.suburbanseats.com/
They were an over run from a euro made delivery van and they had over a 1000 pairs in stock, but they ran a special deal of like $239 a pair shipped anywhere USA and they sold them out a few months ago and said they can't get them anymore....they do have some newer styles but not sure if they are as narrow as these, only 19.5" wide so no dog house issues and they are still comfy, a typical seat like a Jeep is about 22" wide and hits the lid on the pass side in GM vans, not sure about E's and A's...call them for details.
BTW, if you look at their flip up jump seats, these would be a great idea for the rear of a van, maybe against the side walls for a third passenger in a pinch and out of the way for cargo, I may get one.

They also have wall mounted seats, they are used on the pass side of step vans like UPS trucks.
