    I just got some new seats out of an 80's Firebird at the junkyard (great deal $26 for the pair in near perfect condition) and was wandering if anybody has any ideas on how to mount them. Thanks

    1 Redrill the floor for the mounts from the firebird seats.
    2 See if the seats bolt up the the seat pedestal already in your truck.

    There may be some other option but those two stick out in my mind [​IMG] My '73 has honda buckets and the only mod needed was a 1 inch tab welded to the trucks seat pedestal.

    Thanks, I think I'm going to go with the redrill the floor route and put the firebird seats up on blocks.

    This is what I did, I have a set of MR2 buckets. I cut off the old mounting brackets and sliding mechanism from the MR2's. I then welded a 24"X24" piece of 1/4" sheetmetal to the rails that were on the bottom of the seats. I then unbolted the blazer seats from the stock seat brackets and market points to drill, bolted the two together and there ya go degrading a chevy with toyota seats!
