Any here installed a third seat in the back of his W 113? Any diagrams for constructing one?

It is designed for small dogs only. No adult will fit back there and kids have to have a restraining seat now..

Children up to 12 years fit fine in a W113 jump seat, my children have sat there for 14 years.

In my state, you will pick up a $100 ticket for having your child not properly restrained.

Frank says: your dog would be better off using the basic shelf. Actually, I have spent a number of hours in the jump seat of my 250 SL. After picking it up at Sindelfingen, I and two full-grown male friends put some 4,000 miles on it driving through Italy, Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, etc. This was with the hardtop in place -- the jump seat is much more livable with top down. Probably the best approach would be to find a used one on eBay or elsewhere. After finding the two basic pieces, you are then faced with the job of making carpets for the footwell, if you want to do it right.
