    Was wondering if anyone could take some pics of their rear seat brackets and how they mount..Picked up a rear seat from a fellow K5er off the ColoradoK5 forum but it doesnt come with the mounting brackets..could someone fill me in on what they look like and how they mount.My '70 didnt come with a rear seat so I'm somewhat clueless.Any input on where I could get these new or used? Thanks for all the help!!

    don't have any links or pics yet, but front of the rear seat had two clamp like brackets, and rear has 4 or 5 bolts that go thru flat like flanges.

    BTW, anyone have an extra front bracket for the rear seat, (small part) I"m missing one....

    I replaced my original seat with a 2000 Suburban 3rd row seat and wont be needing em.

    wrath, you can see the brackets in the photos of NuBomb's 72 Blazer bed clean up - <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/albuo30>http://coloradok5.com/gallery/albuo30</a>
    They are the flat things welded to the bed. His look just like the brackets in my '69.

    I don't have the rear seat for mine now but if I remember right from my old one, there are two clips on the front of the seat and the back has holes trough the frame of the seat. The seat belts bolt into the back holes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Bracket picture

    Here are the electrical conduit clamps I used in my blazer. When the actual seat is bolted down in the back. The front part of the seat has a bar that runs along the floor board. well that bar should eventually end up close to a hole that already has been drilled and threaded. All you have to do is supply the bolt and then use these clamps.

    The only bad thing about this is that you don't get to pop any more wheelie's in the back seat once you bolt it down in the front. :D

    I saw a set on ebay and they are really frigging expensive. I thing conduit clamps are way to lightweight for a seat, I would make some out of some 1/8" flat stock if it were mine.

    Well my decision to go with them was because most accidents and incidents come from the front. So the back four bolts do the majority of the work. I just needed something to hold down the seat in the front so I wasn't popping anymore wheelies with my rear seat. And the way it feels it seems pretty sturdy... By no means isn't strong. But has a good stiff feel to it.

    James,
    I don't mean to sound judgemental. Sorry if it sounded that way. If you get rear ended though.... Or spin... Admit it, it would take you about 10 minutes to make a safer set.

    Bill,
    No, I understood what you meant and I didn't think you were too judgemental... I just posed another fix on this thread to give other people ideas. Or what they can do.

    Greg...
    You know I used to sit here and read some of the stupidest things on some of these pages that people would do to their trucks... well what you had said about my posting of those clamps had made me rethink (STUPID!!) of going to something stronger. I just don't work with fabricating metal so I went for the quick fix on this one. If I come up with something other than going factory. I will be sure to post them up. But, for right now... I have the prject of swapping engines and when that is complete and running good... I think this might be my next fix.

    -James

    Sometime it only takes a good friend to go, "what in tarnation!" To make you think of your decisions about having sone something. Thanks Greg.
