Annoyingly, I thought I had but cant seem to find them...
As I said I took out the double seat, built a false floor which was the height of the wheel arches with a pair of central supports. It went from the very back and stopped in line with the remaining single rear seat. The front of the central supports was cut at a sloping angle to match the seat. I then cut in a piece of plywood which sat at an angle, the same as the seat, screwed to the central supports, then held on the right where the seat normally clips onto when upright.
On the seat side I used a strip of ply with two holes in it that I then passed the headrest through, joined another piece at right-angles which went to the floor. This then gave me a means of supporting that side of the bulkhead.
I also fitted an armrest next to the single seat made from plywood with a foam upholstered pad. I used the screw holes from taking the seat out to attach it to the floor then screwed the bulkhead to it from behind.
It was all pretty solid after...

I like a bit of xc too. Not here though. It was over 3000 metres!
yeah thats sounds great, i wanted to do something similar but needing 4 seats it didnt seem worth pulling out the single and doing all that. i can still drop both seats with the bulk head i have been building so still plenty of room when needed.
