    k5 seats 4.jpg Ok so I've scored some leather seats from a 2001 Chevy 2500 Silverado. They are in great condition and I am going to use them as my front seats in my 86 K5.. Anyone mounted these types of seats before? I heard several people mention to add additional bracing to the floor since they have the seat belts built in the seats. If you have done this will you post pics of how you mounted them? I'm not sure yet if I'll mount the middle jump seat I think it may get put aside for now and keep the current console I have.

    I sure did and could not have asked for a better setup. These almost fit perfect in my 86 all I had to do was mock them inside then drill the holes. I did have a buddy create some anchor plates to go underneath on the body. I've got the diagram somewhere if you want to make similar plates. He used a CAD and plasma cut the steel out of the pattern I gave him.

    Does the passenger side fold forward for rear access or how do your folks get back there? I will be wanting to do something very similar in mine!!

    The seat slides forward enough for anyone to get access to the rear. Its about the same access you have with the old tilt forward seats. This setup is almost perfect for the K5...
