I have a custom built Aerotech 4WD seat I've used in several vehicles. I want to fit it to my new Pajero but can't find Aerotech to buy an adaptor frame. Has anyone had similar experience, found a better seat ( made themselves shorter..I'm 6'5")..any info on seating for full-sized people would be helpful.
Thanks

I went down this track with Paratus and a recent reinterpretation (18months ago) in Victoria by VicRoads now means an engineering certificate is required for all seat mods other than installing one from the same model/age vehicle.

The Paratus supplied certificate of compliance is no longer enough.

I could have taken a chance but the risk of insurance claiming an unannounced modification in the event of an accident, or the TAC reducing a pay out if I or my wife got hurt put me off. As did the price of the engineers certificate.

Still sitting in standard seats :o(

That's bloody interesting, what about all the seats that have been fitted under the old ruling, that did comply? I will have to ring Aerotech and enquire.

I was dark on it. I've looked at the wording on VicRoads documentation and I can't see a way around it. Apparently someone made enquiries with VicRoads about Paratus seats and the Paratus adapters and that caused someone at VicRoads to have a close look at the issue for the first time in a long while, and as beauracraps are inclined to do they reinterpreted the rules.

If you were to have to go for an inspection to get a vehicle reregistered or the like I suspect they would say come back after you've seen the engineer.

Apparently it's cost ARB quite a few Paratus sales. I don't think I have all the email correspondence anymore, I'll have a look. I was dealing with Yvonne at Paratus, can't remember the names at ARB.

Let me know how you go.

Alex, I don't think Aerotech make SAAS seats. I have been trying to find the number for Aerotech, but can't find it, can't remember what the parent company was. Will keep looking for receipt, lol.
