Has anyone seen it done, I have read adverts for wagons for sale on LPG and has the third row seat fitted, included basic pictures which doesn't show much.

If anyone knows of a car with this done, could they get pictures and a few details. (Dimensions would be excellent :o )
Spare wheel holder clearance is the only thing I can think which will be an issue.

There is more than a few brands of third row seats available, I am wondering if any of them bolt in any differently?

I actually looked at a third row seat yesterday from over my Nan's fence, if the neighbours actually were living in next door I would have gone over for a look, I could see it was front facing and seat belts were attached to the rear pillars which puts me off, otherwise I would approach them to see if they want to sell the EA to me instead of the wreckers.

Yes, won't have the money for month, just working out which one will fit with LPG, spare wheel bracket and not have to drill rear pillars to fit seat belts etc.

If you can post a picture of the d**k seat that would be good.

I have it with 3 seats in the third row. They way I did was to remove the spare and petrol tank and mount standard LPG tank under floor. This is all enclosed from outside by a new false floor, kinda looks like a drop tank. I can fit two tanks under floor or one tank with a chopped down petrol tank.

Cost me $100 for an LPG tank (just tested) with mounts and the false floor out of an EB. I then transplanted all this into the EF. Took me about 4hrs, most of that time was measuring. If you do it yourself you have to use all new high grade bolts. Passed inspection fine. I then had the rest of the kit fitted, all new parts for $1600 odd.

cheers
Scott
