seatbox lid layout

Post by 5988 »

Could someone confirm that the lids on the centre and RH (as sat in vehicle) are screw down type and the LH one is on a swively catch

Seems odd to mo to have the battery under one with a scre down lid, but looks to be how mine was (dont have the lids and lots of po messing so want to check) - if so me thinks an accessible battery kill switch is a good plan

Yep, just as you say.

I've a battery isolator connected through the front of the drivers (RHD) seatbox at the moment.

Cheers.

On mine there is a fuel tank under the drivers' seat (LH) and the batteries are under the passenger seat (RH). Also have a fuel tank in the rear. Suspect it has to do with that.

I think it's the original seat box and it's the original paint colour but I can't be sure what might have happened before I owned the vehicle.

My 110's seatbox is the one as the one in my stage 1, except for the cubby under drivers seat, and size of lid covering the battery box. (will be the same as disco's seatbox). I was going to remove the front fuel tank, and rivet in the cubby on the stage 1 as it had mint lids and panels.

The donor seatbox I got and stripped for the panels was from a civillian stage 1, but I never did it. Now I'm stoked because the seatbox in the 110 is pretty sloppy, so will rivet on the better panels and make it good.

It's even better because I scored some high back defender seats, and the bases lift out to get into the boxes under the seat! very posh. bahahahaha

Any chance of a pic, of the RH one,
I cant see any evidence of where mine has been screwed down (no obvious holes for screws) and no holes in the front for a catch to be removable

now confused

interestingly that is the layout the manual shows, but my seatbox doesnt have holes for that or hoes to screw the cover down with :?

Will go with that set up I think

Cheers
