Default 96 Black Leather GSR SEATS IN 89 EF HATCH????

I just picked up a mint set of black leather gsr seats. . . can you just swap the seat pan or how am I going to have to go about doing this?? The seats are going to go in one way or another even if I have to weld them in . . . I dont wanna do that though. . . And I dont wanna drill and thread new holes. . . any ideas?

bolt your stock sliders into the floor of your car.sit the new seats on top and measure how far they are apart.just make brackets thatll bolt into the bottom on the seat pan and weld them onto the sliders.

Dunno wth you are talking about, as there is NO mixing and matching of any parts besides the seat pan, back rest being swapped. UNLESS you are like me and retain the lumbar support, THEN and ONLY then is any welding required.
