Default qx80 / qx56 captains chairs to bench conversion / retrofit

Hi, I have a qx80 for 6 month, as I have three Kids it is ok for me. Once a month because of various reasons I wished it was equiped with 2nd row bench, Just as my previous 2015 gl450 had.
Got tired with it and I have decided to make conversion. I have a proper jump seat, and this week it will be wraped with matching nappa leather. The fitment is easier than I thought. Seatbelt will be waist only, but its ok for me.

Here are the photos. Bad light as it was done at night. The seat is cloth now, but soon it will be black leather with silver stichings. The cupholder plate will be wraped with leather too . As it must be up to the infiniti's class.

Nice modification! I had a QX56 with the second row bench but got a QX80 with the captain's chairs. Every so often, I miss the flexibility of have all three kids in the second row and the third row down. But, my oldest is a driver and we're not often all 5 in the same vehicle, so the comfort of the captain's chairs works better. Please post pics of the finished product when complete.

Out of curiosity, where did you get the jump seat?

As I stay in Europe, there are many small cars, one of it has perfect fiting seats. Of course I will send finshed mod photos. The Best thing is that it combines comfort of captains seats, with versatility ( sorry if spelled badly) of bench seat.
If someone is interested in this mod, I can help by supplying cloth seat, or finished one, with all needed stuff. Mounting is easy, if heating is needed, than you have to get power from left or right seat. Another step is to drill holes in oryginal brackets 10 mm diameter, screw the lock bolts, and it is done.

Hi, I urgently need to convert my current 2nd row captain's chair setup to straight bench. Unable to find any seat on junkyards. QX80 is a rare find on salvage yards. Please tell me how exactly did you do the conversion? DId you purchase all parts fro Infiniti OEM parts site? Did you custom made it? I would appreciate any info. thanks

Hi, I can help you. After long search I have found proper jump seat. I will have it complete this week if you want I can make one for you. I have paid for seat 350 USD, the exact cost of wrapping will be know this week. I will check shipping cost to USA, and will let you know. Pawel you have black interior I have already found perfect leather. If you have any other colour I could send you sample board for your reference. For black one I think it will take 3-4 weeks to buy the seat, make leather, and ship to you.
You can contact me by smola71/ at /op.pl.
Pawel
