On the seats, I use them as is but do flatten the rear legs a bit. I leave
the angled front legs because I like the extra thigh support provided by
the extra lift. I also make a couple mounting bars that are attached though
the stock front bolt holes.  I then drill and tap bolt holes though the
front bar stock (3/4x1.5) at the same angle as the holes in the legs. Use
fender washers to acommodate the large the holes in the original mounts.
The rear mounting holes will line up with the original holes in the floor.
