Seat base mounting tabs

I recently aquired 2 Defender seat's and both are missing one of the mounting tabs, like this:

Of course it should look like this:

Is it an issue to mount it with only 3 bolts? I would think so. What kind of options are there for fixing this?

They are basically pinched in and usually rattle. You can use a drill bit from the bottom to remove them. Also weld them from the bottom to prevent rattling. That being said paypal me 15 bucks to cover shipping and I'll send you a couple. Or if you want the whole runner I can price shipping on that.

I had a seat frame that didn't have one also. I made one and welded it in. I guess you can tell it is not original so I switched it out with one or the rear ones that was loose. Of course you could buy James's and have an original look.
