Default Install 2nd row bench to replace captains, what's required?

Most of the qx80 we like have captains and we prefer the bench.

There are a few threads that imply you can swap but nothing definitive.

Can anyone confirm it is possible and what is involved?

It seems most, swap parts with someone or find used parts on ebay/junk yard.

Can you just buy a new frame and middle seat and mount the middle seat and one of the existing buckets to the new frame?

Thanks

I am doing this right now. The seat will be heated ( this will be operated by left passanger switch), manualy folded. It can be remowed in 20-seconds as it will use its oryginal method of attaching it. Original middle console brackets will be used to lock it in place.
I will supply more photos as I get it back from workshop.
The plastic part with cupholders will be leather wrapped , maintaing cupholder feature.
Both captains chairs fold and rotate without any problem. So I think it combines all good features from bench and captains charis

here are 4 photos. First try install. Fits perfect. Instal will require only 4 holes in exsisting armrest brackets, and if heated is needed, you have to take power from left or right seat heating harness . As I get it wrapped, I will send more photos for reference. It can be done in any colour. Mine is antracit with grey stiching. Next week I will have it done. Seat belt is waist only.
