hey?

Are you replacing the stock seats with a different set, or is there a problem with them?
What I normally do with any seat is unbolt them from the deck, and turn them upside down. If it doesn't look like there is any way to unbolt the rails from the seat itself I don't sweat it.

I just get myself another set of rails for whatever is going in to replace the old. Salvage yards are filled with them.

Look at JEGS , SUMMIT, and others - you may find suitable replacement rails are far more common than at first.

I myself would go look for japanese cars like the datsun, Nissan, and similar cars out in the yards.

NEVER waste your time on a hopeless issue!
THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!!!!

Scrappers have tonnes of stuff that you can rip rails out of

And these cars tend to have FLAT floors, yeah?
Same height front to back, and no humps in between


*Measure the available rail distance from front to back, and note it down. Take those notes to the scrapyards to compare with whatever you find. Don't worry about the hardware - you can always use whatever bolts you want, or weld nuts under holes you drill in the floorpan.

Bolt up the rails you find on the seats - then mark where the mounting holes have to be when you trial fit them ( a FOOL wastes time on finding GREASE PENCILS - I use common crayons...) Drill them, and figure what you have to do next as you find it.

But fit the rails to the seats - and use THE SEAT RAILS as your guide
