That's a good guess but there is something more basic there that shouldn't be happening as far as how they function.

The wings are from the convertable basket handles. I was the first to use them in something other than a stock function.

Also here on wheels.

I can't tell if your serious or not, but no it's something even more basic than that. As you can see from one of the pics above, the handles are on the correct side.

Final clue --- what is the rear drivers side bucket doing that the everybodies front drivers bucket will not do?

Question Re: Secrets of the PT Cruiser

I guess looking at the side trim panel from that angle looked like the lever to me.
OK....I'm gonna guess that it folds forward at all?
Most drivers seats don't fold....But,I swear I read somewhere that at least a few somehow ended up with driverside folding seatback,seems like it may have been on Northwest Cruisers website???.......But,I may have imagined it(sometimes I even imagine putting stamps on letters!LMBO)

Give randy a shiny new nickel. The OEM drivers seat will fold, but only a short distance to prevent them from hitting the steering wheel.

I knew it would look weird with one seat flat and the other only "half-flat" while displaying at shows so I took advantage of a lucky happinstance to achieve this capability. As I said earlier, Mr. Mikes shop is only a short distance from me and we are good freinds. He is from england and his timing of a trip back there on vacation was perfect for my rear seat mod. I asked him to bring me back a set of the left side passenger front buckets hinges along with the appropriate covers. Holes lined up perfect and it was just a matter taking the normal fasteners out and then back in and --- easy peasey --- it was done. Also seat belts were affected by this same process. Think about it ---if I used a second OEM stock passenger seat to get my wanted "both fold flat" function, the seat belt would have been on the wrong side as well as the seat lever fold assembly.

I bet the rear seats are a lot more comfortable than the bench

My rear bench is leather so whenever I have friends in the back they are sliding like it was made of ice. It's also a way to make them get their seat belts on
