og9-3 seats into ng900

I recently purchased a set of '03 9-3se convertible seats (viggen seats) to install in my '98 900s convertible.

Obviously the rear seats bolt right in. I'd like to document how I get the front seats to bolt in. They are also power, so I'll have to get that part wired in as well.

These are the passenger side seat brackets.



The mounting holes for the ng900 seat are about 14 3/8" apart on center.
While the og9-3 seats are about 16 3/8" on center





My plan is to get some flat stock steel that I can drill and countersink holes into to bolt to the ng900 brackets. Then to Drill and tap holes into the flat stock to be able to bolt the seats to.

I know people have done this, but I have not been able to find any pictures of it done.

I came across that thread when trying to figure out how to install the seats. I will be using that info to wire the electronics.

I did make some progress on this today. The passenger seat is mounted. I just need to wire the electronics for it.
this is the adapter plate for the right bracket on the passenger side. I wanted to use countersunk tore head bolts, but All I could find locally was phillips head bolts.




now the plate on the left bracket


both brackets with the new mounting holes drilled and tapped.



everything cleaned up and painted



And bolted in.



I stacked 5 washers between the set and the bracket on the right side to keep the motor from binding up against the plate.
