Talking 40 20 40 Rear Seats

I spent some time searching and didn't find an on point photo or answer.

Has anyone split the rear seat backs in a manner that allows the 20 middle portion to be folded down without either side being down?

I am thinking it would be nice to have the armrest when wanted, but would be nice to be able to have a bench type seat when the backseater wants to nap

I have seen Greg Hales configuration, but it appears that he has a fixed armrest in the middle.

Any photo's or thoughts?

Flightline interiors will sell you rear seat pieces that velcro in: either an armrest, or a flat bench seat fill-in. You could change them out as needed.

We have been asked about this a few times with our 60/40 seat frames. I have not come up with any good ideas that would be strong enough to lean on (you know it will happen). If anyone has good ideas, we would love to hear them.
