    Rear seat brackets and fixings

    I am finally getting around to covering the two rear bench seats for the van. For the fixing to the floor i believe I need just the floor plates and bolts, is that correct? If so, does anyone have any spare they could ship over to the UK or point me in the right direction to anyone/sites that may have. Many thanks!

    Does anyone have a picture of the original hold down clamps? I have four that came with my van but I don't know if they are correct. They use 7/16" carriage bolts. I actually found an original bench seat in excellent condition in the correct color of my interior upholstery that SMS had in stock do do my front seats and bench seat. Now I need a set of hold down brackets for the third seat. I can copy what I have but I was curious as to what originals looked like. Thanks

    The pic looks like a part that would work. I referenced the parts manual.
    The manual shows an extruded type of piece but the shape looks just like the pic in that link.
