Default Classic Aero seat question

For those who have installed the Classic Aero seats in a -14, do I still need to install the Van's seatback hinges (F-01447B) since the CA seats have an integrated seatback frame?

If your asking about the hinges on the seat pan, yes. Also, you may consider not installing the rear most hinge. The Aero Classic seat has a 45* bend at the bottom where the hinge attaches. Causing the second from the rear to give the same leg length as using the aft hinge on the Vans seatback. Using the last hinge with the Aero Classic will cause a nearly vertical seatback.

Also, Classic Aero uses a wide hinge (1 more loop of hinge on each end of each seat hinge) than Vans standard install. One can replace the seat pan hinge with a longer one, or opt to use as is (which I did) leaving an un-attached loop on the seat back.
