    You'd need to use something like this, where the lock is on one side.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163686357734 tho they may have a rotation to the handle to release...

    CBS do left and right hand versions... https://www.carbuilder.com/uk/black-...lock-left-hand

    Ok been diverted by a bit of ' honey do ' work and some ill health time off.

    However I have tack welded some plates to the seat runner frame :-



    these will take bolts that will fasten the wooden seat base to the runners



    the white extension piece is because the runner frame is not as long as the seat base



    this is what the seat base looks like with the steel plates marked in white.

    The seat base is old plywood so I reckon 4 x 6mm bolts at the front and maybe 3 x 6mm at the back might spread the load enough ?

    Else I could weld a couple more pieces where the ' ? ' are on each side allowing somewhere else to bolt to ?

    I was trying to leave the hole clear , so if need be I could have a secret compartment under the seat swab.

    Thoughts , least the passenger seat is just bolted to the floor !

    i'd cut a 2 bits of plate (front and back) to sandwich the wooden base to the runners rather than separate bolts, nuts and washers.
    neil.

    yeah, just something to spread the load. a strip of flat bar would do.

    Neil - yep on it.

    So decided if I used the template I had the runners bolted to I could drop it onto the car floor and use it to drill 4 x 8mm holes and I could have a trial sit in my adjusting seat ........

    Well err no , kicked in the nadgers again



    Stood outside car so front of car to the right , just drill the 4 green circled holes to 8mm how hard can it be ?

    The red hatched area is where the chassis is DOH.

    There is about 12mm of wood vertical spacer under each seat runner at the moment so I have that amount of space to play with ....

    Simples you say join the pairs of holes front and back of the seat across the car with some steel and drill 4 mounting holes inside the chassis through the steel ?

    Well no because if you do that the seat unlocking bar will not be able to move as it occupies that space !



    Needs some thinking time applied

    drill right through the chassis, bigger holes on top to drop 2 tubes through but bolt sized underneath. then use 2 longer bolts that side, same as bolting a towbar under a chassis section, the tube stops the chassis from crushing. easy peasy and no overthinking stuff.
