« on: June 22, 2006, 12:25:19 PM »
hay guys, I'm thinking about putting the right front (4) stock type seats back in my 4106. Wondering if these have to be special for a 4106
(these would be over the front wheel well) or can I find some nice late model pull-outs from someone doing a conversion.

I have 1 pair of original seats for passenger seats. They are original seats and people get a kick out of them. I am sure many others would fit, but a small slice of original 4106 as a tribute to the heritage would be very cool in my opinion.

I tried to do this for my 4104 about a year ago and got nowhere. I also wanted to mount the "Modesty Panel" in front of the right front seat but never found a seat. Hope you have better luck.

The seats over the wheels have slightly different mountings (The part that plugs into the wall). The two wall mounts on each of these seats are closer together vertically than the others and the under side of the seats may be slightly different. I think I could make one of the others work but couldn't find any of them either.

 I think the 4104 and 4106 use the same seat but sometime around that era the wall/floor mounts were changed to floor only.

Looky Look!  The original seats from our 4106 clad in leather.  The six seats have seat belts, which allows us to install car seats for the kiddies.  Four seats face each other with the dining table in between.  The seats are one of my favorite parts of the coach.

Sorry Tuscon, When I said I had 2 seats, I meant they were mine. Not for sale, I'm sure some one will step up with some. My point was if your going to get seats anyway, don't just scab on some high backs out of brand X. 

 Maybe I am twisted because I didn't convert mine from a seated coach, but alot of what I plan to do to improve the interior appearance is going back to original GM  These are magnificant machines of mid century engineering and design. If you need side by side seating for traveling, it would be a shame not to incorporate a little OEM GM. I am sure they can be brought up to your standards of comfort, fit, and finish.

GM Buses are so cool, we should use some of it.  All my favorite parts of my coach are the original GM stuff just like one lapper. Pulling up the carpet and finding the original linoleum, or a piece of aluminum or stainless trim is like finding treasure,

Frank, if you would be so kind to ask him to drop me a line on my e-mail I would be in your debt. I can't even get on that board. tried for about two weeks once, fainly got on and the first thing I got was a snotty letter from the mod. telling me what they were going to do if I spamed them. Then two wks later and my posts were still not approved, All this after giving them everything but a chest x-ray to sign up. I'm done with them bro. any help would be appreciated.

I too had a very nasty experience on the BNO.  One day, I inadvertantly mentioned that I used my bus to haul around a "Gospel" group.  Nothing else, just the word "Gospel". :o  You'd thought I shot JFK they way folks started blasting away at me.  Then, the moderator confused me with some other poster who made some "offensive" remarks and sent me a threatening email.  Don't get me wrong, there were some good folks on there, but also so real good 'uns. 

Needless to say, I don't need that kind of harrassment, so I told them all to have a Coke and a smile. That's when I found ya'll!!! ;)

Was that really on the BNO board or one of the Yahoo boards that gave you the hard time? Please let us know if you start getting harassment here. We do not want that to happen, and welcome aboard.

P.S. When you want to use one of the functions such as size, you must highlight the text and then select the function. See my Help, Tips and Tricks at the top of the board.
