Here is the situation. I have 7 Berkline 45090 theater chairs, two of which are showing a lot of leather wear down. I have kept my eye out locally for the same or similar looking chairs to replace those two with. This weekend I found 3 chairs made by Douglas that look very, very similar that I can pick up for a very reasonable price. Plan would be to place those new chairs in my front row by themselves and move two of the front row berklines to replace the back row wore-down berlklines. Problem is that the two berklines I would be replacing are the only two electric recline. I am wondering if it is possible to de install the recline mechanisms from teh electric chairs and retrofit them to the manual recline berklines? has anyone ever done this before?
