    For the buckets in my truck, I used the stock seat brackets, and put 1/8x1.25 angle iron accross between the rails, and then drilled the angle iron to match the seat bolt pattern. they're actually more stable than the stock seats were.

    the problem is that even if the seats are sitting on 1" square tube, they are too tall. I mean that they have to be basically sitting on the floor, which is not even. I have some ideas with using spacers and some square tubing to go over the tranny hump.
