Calling all owners with the 60/40 rear seats!

Hi everyone!
I recently upgraded my seats in my SE sedan to the seats from an ST1 (hatch of course)

Most of it was easy the bolt holes are there for the seats (they weren't tapped, but a tap set from sears solved the problem and four M8 allen head bolts from home depot helped)

After all was said and done I wasn't very happy with the fit and finish. I can see all the way down to the floor pan wear the seat belts are. The two folding seat backs don't seem very well connected either. I was hoping someone could take some pictures for me of the similar area I've uploaded.
Thanks for looking and any info would be helpful!

Replacing full bench with rear split seats?

Hi, I have not found other posts about this. In your diagram which bracket was missing. Also, besides tapping for bolts (simple) did you have to do any "destructive" modifications ie.. welding, cutting?

Did you need different seat belts or child seat anchors?

Thanks, bought SE and did not even check that the seats where not split. DUH

Pictures show the center split of the seats and what happens when there isn't a bracket to hold that section in position.

613B44 looks like the reference number for the part mentioned, see how the dashed line shows the rod from the wide section passing through that to the narrow section? Pivot/attachment rod for the pair of seat backs.

No cutting or anything.
Just the bracket and some tapping.
