The gear surround front mounting holes are the same but the back bracket is completely different and would require grinding and welding.

On the console the handbrake mechanisms would need to be swopped and that back bracket of yours for the console would also require welding and grinding.

As much as I would like to do the conversion I do not think it is feasable unless we have both vehicles together, time and equipment.

From your side I would also rethink as the bench seat is only 20 cm wider than the single seat so the 3rd person idea is not really practical. For me the console would be a lot more useful than the extra bit of seat.
P.S> If you are ever interested in swapping just the seats let me know. Then you can fit a cooler bag between the two seats. :lol:
