    Newty, do you have detailed pics of the modification.

    BL lime is good as well, no messy limes with the coronas

    Tazz, it raised the seat about 3/4" in the front and 1 1/2 in the rear so the seat was level and pivoted level.

    Time will tell if I need a swivel lock but its a direct replacement and a simple fix.

    jmvotto I showed my buddy with a new outback my set-up and... of course he wants to do it on his. We are getting ready to do a stereo install among other things on his so when our boats trade homes and we get going on it I'll make sure to post detailed picks of the process.
    I believe the outback seat sits lower so height isn't as much an issue as it is with the LSV.
    When I sat in the seat of my LSX the top frame of the windsheild was right in my line of sight. I either had to hunch down to see under it or sit up a little to see over it.
    In my buddies OBV I can see clearly under the window frame with room to spare, and with the bolster its easy to see over. Being low profile won't be an issue in his. I'll do more along the lines of what chillx did with the poly boards instead of the stainless plate.

    Just an off the shelf boaters world non locking swivel. The bolt holes are elongated to fit different patterns. I believe its about 8" square. Not sure. I think they are all standard.
    I actually took my seat with me down to boaters world put it in a cart and played with different types in the store. Much easier than guessing and making a second trip.

    Newty, this is great! I'll have to pick one up while I'm in San Antonio this weekend. Good Job Buddy!

    Newty is the non locking a problem??

    I saw an attwood swivel base at wllay world and thought it might do the trick except it was non locking.

    I absolutely love the non locking. I put a locking one in my buddies boat and its a pain to unlock. I like to be able to swivel around at any time. It really hasn't been an issue when driving. I don't get whipped around when taking off, or stopping.

    No issues for 2 years with this set-up.
    The only thing I did was double up the poly spacers because the vinyl seat base was rubbing on the bolts.

    so it takes some effort to get it to swivel, not like a bar stool.

    so i would be ok with POWERTURNS
