    I have a 60/40 bench out of a '93 chevy in my 85. Somebody did a botch job welding it to the floor in the truck. Seems like it sits higher than the stock bench in my 77... But with custom work you can do anything :D

    and I would not suggest the setup I have... it sucks I can't take my seat out... looking for another option, but I do like the seat it is very comfortable
     
  3. can can i use my 83 brackets or the newer style??

    Alot of the seats on the newer body style use more than 4 bolts in each corner to bolt down, and the floors are shaped diffrent.

    I always thought about using older brackets and welding together a frame for a new style seat.
