    Seat tracks are very different since the K5 has a flat floor, and the K10 is bulged up to accomodate the saddle tanks.

    I've seen it done with seats out of an older chevy van. The big captains buckts in there are actually pretty sweet.

    Sort of.. the cab floor isn't even near flat. The inboard-front mount is down low next to the hump. The front- outboard mounting point is on top the hump. The two rear mounts are higher still on the ledge that forms the back of the cab.

    Van tracks should work since they're only about 1" tall - very compact... just build something to level the floor first.

    You could see if GM still carries regular-cab bucket seat tracks... they do exist.

    Tried the dealer option. They were discountinued some years ago /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif . Your best bet is to use a set out of a Suburban. The tracks are identical in the front and only slighty off in the back. You just have to bend the back ears up a bit to match the shape of the floor. The inside front mount also require this spacer thing cause the floor dips down over there. The suburbans and bucket seat pickups have that spacer spot welded on to the floor. Make sure to steal that while you're at it.
