To my knowledge they aren't available new, but there is a weekender being parted here in the classifieds. If that doesn't work out, 3/4" plywood will get you there.

Pretty sure the hinges from 93-03 are all the same, but the 01-03 got locking gas struts and the earlier ones had the Vanagon-style backbreaker knee support.

I take it he's talking about the driver's seat, which in a (non-home-built Wink ) Westy Weekender has a battery inside and no front access. Maybe the swivel is upposed to go on top of the slider inste ...
