Bought a 2-pack of eyebolts from Go-Westy. They worked! I guess the rear seat mounting points use the same bolt size as all the seat belt mounting points. Thanks everyone for the suggestion.

Thanks for the ideas. I bought the GW eye bolts. We'll see if that's all I need. Not very many mounting points when the floor is all aluminum and I have the wall behind the front seats.

The TS logo looks pretty bland. People would wonder what TS stands for. Tough Sh!t? Tuna Salad? Tobacco Smoke? The Tori Spelling fan club? Needs to incorporate some kind of VW visual.

Sadly the Pepto Syncro was for sale in Germany on the Mobile.de website. I get most of my shame pics from there.

My imported Syncro has about 90,000 miles on it, while the motor in it (taken from my old trusty '90GL) has about 240,000 miles on it. So averaging it out would make my van at around 165k.

The big tell is you fill the gas tank at the rear of the van and not by the passenger door.
