I'm actually about to do the swap as well, this would help alot if I knew what to do before I start gutting.

I have done this swap. Pesonally, I just never bolted in the two center brackets, and it works fine. If you really want them to be bolted in, you could use wither some large self tapping screws (Be sure to use some rubber washers) or drill the holes, then tack weld nuts into place from under the car on the back side then use a regular bolt to secure them in.

DO NOT do the above without first checking whats behind where your going to drill. there's all sorts of lines and stuff back there, make sure the area is clear. :)

thats wierd my zx3 had all the holes needed for the svt seats to bolt up with no problem. im just assuming since both of your cars are both pre SVT you dont have the proper holes already drilled. but i agree with RSVT170 just dont bolt them up

So we should just bolt them in and forget about the centers or drill some in but first check where we're drilling.

Sounds about right..not that I've ever owned an SVT or plan on doing this sort of gutting.. but it makes sense... :)

I did the SVT interior swap on my ZX3 (2001) and never bothered with figuring out the center two bolts. Seats hold fine without them (going on 3 years with this interior)

Just be real careful the gas tank is plastic and right under the rear passenger seat. A self tapping screw could easily go right into the tank.
