I am looking to buy a Defender 90 of 2004/5/6 vintage. Although I don't need full County spec, I would like to have a pair of folding rear seats, inc. seatbelts. If I find the right vehicle that doesn't have them, can the folding seats be retro-fitted? If so, where can I buy them and is it a complicated retro-fit job?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am brand new to the world of Land Rover! [/b]

As I understand it, if you fit the rear seats with seatbelts on a vehicle that never had them before, it will need an inspection of some kind (not just an MOT). A friend of mine had this problem (Mr MOT wasn't happy with the rear seats in his van top 90) but I'm not sure what the solution was in the end.

Keep an eye on calssified ads/ebay etc, as the seats can be got a lot cheaper than trackers/exmoor trim. The seat belts are fitted to a rail that runs down the wall of the rear tub on each side, behind the seats. You also need spreader plates to go underneath the tub when fitting said rail.
