Yeah ive heard it's a pain in the a** to put these in.Are the rails able to be changed over or modified to fit?Or should i give up and clean up the old seats and sell off the el seats.

They are a pain in the a** to modify but it can be done. I got around it by removing rear inside bracket from orig seat secure it to el seat(using high tensile bolts and re weld). Bolt down 2 rear brackets first and then front inside bracket(near console) and you will notice the front outside bracket near door wont match original hole on the floor pan so i drilled a hole in line with the bracket threw the floor and used a high tensile nut and bolt to secure it to the floor.
There are other ways ive seen this mod been done but ive found this to be the easiest and cheapest way of doing it. Now i just got to figure out how to line the EL back seat with the mounts/catch as the catch is about an inch to high.
