Building a seat in a van that needs to recline to a bed. The Seat base has been made and heights set but it needs to have all the gear to make it recline. Has to support passengers while driving. Its a strange request i know but i also know some of the guys on here know how to fab up some serious stuff.

My plan as of now is to grab a front seat to a car and cut it up to make it work and recline by stretching it the width of the rear bench.

A few ideas my friend gave me were fence hinges and some rods to hold it up but id feel like crap if this seat came flying apart in a wreck or something.

Just get a back seat out of a conversion van. Most of those convert into a bed and they are also electric. Mid 90s vintage should be cheap in a junkyard.

My thoughts exactly. We had an old Dodge my dad converted and it had a manual bench seat in the rear which folded down nicely into a bed.
