    If you take out the bulkhead plate, and the front floor plate, you may find the mounts are already drilled for Estate seats.

    Im in the process. No mounts there, but the floor plans there.

    You can go two ways, either buy the van rear seats...but they look shit and are uncomfy as they fold down flat. Or fit car rear seats or coupe ones.

    Im using just some sxi rear seats. Gonna weld a bracket across the back for support and bolt the seats to it. Havnt figured out about seatbelts yet. Not sure on the legality on them due to it been a van.

    The van rear seats seem to go for silly money on ebay (£200 Ish).

    dont use them. They are uncomfy, and come in poverty spec material. As they are based for commercial use. If your wanting to be able to drop them flat and use it as a VAN then they are a good idea.

    But if like me you just want rear seats in, use car or coupe seats
