That other thread says that the JK swivel is made by Sportscraft Pt No.3342000.

Here's the label on my now-removed Danbury-supplied swivel:

I'm 6'3" and I do find myself looking above the wiper line, though it's not generally a problem, even when it's raining. Has anyone converted their Brazilian Bay so that the wipers sweep the other way?

Swivelling the seat is a bit of a faff until you've learned the technique of moving it forward and backward to clear the steering wheel.

The only issue I have with the swivel seat is that the chrome loop which holds the seat belt anchor to the driver's left hand side has to have a section chopped out of it so that the seat belt anchor can be dropped out of the way to allow swivelling. The remaining c-shaped section of chrome has been easily bent out of position, but I'm reluctant to bend it back for fear of weakening the metal.

The c shaped piece of chrome is only there to hold the seat belt piece in place, you dont need it there as it serves no other purpose, the T2's made earlier didnt have this on thier seat its only part of the Golf seat.

On the passenger side(RHD Bus, so no wheel) I used the back hole it pushes the swivel base forward, but you need to drill a new hole in the swivel base for the front bolts to fit. This way you do not need to cut off the back and front left corner for bulkhead clearance in order to swivel. You still need to enlarge the hole in the original seat runner for the back bolts to fit(which are too long and require 16mm length bolts). See pic below



However I haven't tried this method with my drivers seat and don't know if this would make swiveling worse or better, with my mx5 seat on now it swivels fine so do not know if this would be a better option with standard seats.

I have seen a danbury fitted swivel seat and this particular one didn't use the original runners to mount it, it just had spacers and was bolted through the seat pan.

This is a pic of my original seat fitted to the swivel base from JK, not much height difference.
