There's a market for these seat setups, I have a friend interested in how this turns out, working for a medical supply company he talks with a lot of wheelchair users, many want an alternative to the hard to find used 6 way power bases, they cost $3000 or more now. If you're interested when that one is finished, there could be a demand for you to make them, I'll be sitting on the prototype. LoL
Funny how I couldn't figure out the slide in my head, but elevating it came right to me the second I saw the video of the track, I was over thinking it.
You have the shop I dreamed of, I used a small compressor, cutoff wheel, C channel and a Miller 220 stick welder to build the drop down transfer case spacers for my 83 Suburban. I learned to weld with a Lincoln stick welder, they are finicky to say the least, any error and the lead sticks, I bet I couldn't tack anything now, it's been so long.
The videos are great, people are enjoying seeing my van's progress and all of your great work.

Back to the gullwing idea, I want a bed in the rear rather than putting the lift back there. If I can just get that door hinged and lift slid to the rear of the door opening, think it moves 6", be enough to put a passenger seat back in. I wish I had an enclosed trailer to use as a camper to stay at Cloudy's to work on my van, starting to miss my older van.

This hinge is more than heavy enough but does cut/welding it make a weak point, and it doesn't look like there is enough steel to carriage bolt it to the door, once you notch and set it down the lip, there's not a large surface before you get to where it turns in. That's what I'm looking for though, just wish the door was solid, without the glass holes, but beggars can't be choosers, finding those vans in junkyards in my area isn't gonna happen, last 3 I've seen were turned in for scrap at a steel salvage yard, they don't allow you to part out vehicles in there.

I will look at some 3" hinges too.

HA Mark, look at the hinges on Cloudys gulwing.
This is what I want yours to look like.
