    The two 'side-flaps' are different, rest is interchangeble.
    But there is difference between PFL and FL galant/legnum concerning the size of the bolts and brackets.
    FL has 3 backseats/belts.

    The seat backs in VR-4s are fixed in the Galant, i.e. don't fold down like they do in the Legnum.

    I'm fairly sure this applies to recaro interior only. I have leather from fl Galant saloon (ex yours Nev ��) and it's folding in my Legnum.

    JDM VR4 saloons have the fixed back. UK Galant saloons did have the fold down seats I believe.
    1997 Mitsubishi RVR HSGR : 2.0 4G63T, 4 seats and the seating position from a truck
    2009 Ford Mondeo : 2.2TDCi, 4 wheels, some plastics, some metal and some seats

    Only true for EUDM facelifts. JDM facelifts still got a lap belt in the middle rear seat.

    Apologies for bumping a rather old thread!

    I've just hit exactly the same problem as above with my replacement rear leather seats in that my JDM pre-facelift VR4 has a single piece solid back rear seat which has a central 'hook' that it hangs from and two side bolts, whereas my new seats have two side bolsters (which connect to the same two side bolts) and then the middle two seats are designed to fold with spring clips to hold them to the back of the car

    As it's a requirement in Ireland (where my car is) that all seats are fixed to the car body, I'll fail their NCT test if the seats aren't secured in place, so I'm trying to work out the best way to modify the body to accommodate the seats...

    After a bit of reading around it looks like in theory I can drill holes where the U-bolts should be on the car, and then find a matching size U-bolt for each side, and then put these in place for the seats to clip to

    The bottom bolts for the middle seats I can mark out, and again drill holes to mount these with bolts, basically achieving similar to the bodies designed for these seats

    So the question is - has anyone done this or achieved the same in an alternative or better way?

    Here's a few pictures of the mounting points I found on the web, and it would be awesome if anyone who does have these mounting points could measure me the width of the U bolts, and the width of the gap between them

    Happy New Year!

    and here's the U-Bolt type thing I think I can find to hold them in place if I can get the right sizes
