Front Seat Base Bolts

Would like to know what type of bolt, nut, washer are used to hold the front seats down to the seat box. I currently have series III seats which have 8 screws (2 at each attachment point) to hold the seats down. The defender seats appear to have 4 (1 at each attachment point) and also look like they are larger diameter than the series ones. Logically since there are half as many.



Thanks

Chris

They are M8 size in a 25 or 30mm length. They thread into captive nuts riveted to the seatbox, so they attach to more than just a thin sheet of aluminum.

Would a rivnut work and if so would I want to put a backing plate in with it?

I wouldnt hesitate to use a rivnut as long as you included a backing plate. The stock piece isnt very large, but I think it does go through 2 thicknesses of alum. I think you'll be fine since its not the seat bolts that hold you in an accident anyway.
