Default camaro seats?

does anyone know off the top of their head how much modification/fabrication will be needed to swap camaro(mid 70's) buckets into a 2000 extended cab?

i got them in exchange for replacing an f150's alternator, and want to know how much time i need to have free before attempting the switch.

can't say i've seen that one done. it'll require either cutting up your bracket and welding them to new ones, or getting some different seat tracks. don't think it's going to be a bolt in deal. i would think an hour or two per seat if you have the correct tools and materials.

That was my estimate for some '10 Explorer seats in my '04. More like 20 hours. All you can do is start. Probably drill some rivets out between tracks and brackets to start and see where your're at. Welder, power hack saw and pile of iron are most helpful. Maybe lay a piece of plywood on the seat flat, poke two 2x4s through the truck sideways and take some measurements first. Otherwise it's like trying to measure between a serving of Jello and and a nervous cat.
Good luck.

Way too much done to list and it's also not even close to done
