Question rear seat install - anyone got photos/info ??

I have some (I think) British Atlantic jump seats. Before I start drilling holes and all, I thought to ask a question or two:

1. Can anyone post photos of how the seats look attached.
2. Should the tub wall be reinforced where the seat bolts are to go?
3. Verticle aspect of the seat attachment - the front 2 bolts: should this piece of metal be slightly angled as mine is, or should it mount flat to the tub wall?

Any insight or advice is really welcome.

Paul the front piece should mount flat to the tub wall.
The seats you have arent the typical inward facing seats i have seen. what are they out of?
I would try and flatten the front portion if possible and put a piece of L bracket behind that porton On the top of the tub i woul put a wide metal strip for reinforcement. I dont see that the seat bolts to the gunnel is there a provision for that?
If not I would try and mount to that area as well for stability.Are you using your stock seat belts?
Make sure you use the correct grade bolts and have a heavy reinforment for them.

Hi,

Here are a couple of pics i have of my station wagon. As you can see under the wheel arch where the seats bolt down there is not any renforceing but it is probaly best to put some. The black bar is where the seat belts bolt onto, this is going to take all the strain in a crash.

Best regards

James
