I've been working on the same job on my Austin this week. Using Ford B Max seats. Inbuilt belts. I've gone even heavier with the mounts (way too heavy..!) 100mm box tied into the chassis, with threaded boss all the way through, welded both ends.
I'm suprised you seem to have more width in your pop than I have in the Austin. My seats are angled inwards 2 degrees, and the mounts touch at the front. Only just fit. I Think...
I'll have to post some more progress, didn't hink it that interseting, but I like looking at how other people have done stuff so maybe I should post more.
Metalwork for the bulkhead and floor is looking really neat and well planned.

Are you going BIVA? How will they view narrowing the seats?
What's your plan? Section the middle and narrow the seat squab? Maybe I'll stare at mine for a while and see if there's a really good reason to narrow them.
I've got a BM as my daily driver, and had planned to use the same seats but sure the Bmax were narower. I'll have to have another measure.
Seats are heavy with all the extra gubbins though!
