Need Information for Aftermarket Seat Install

I know this topic has been discussed to the nth degree but through all my searches have yet to find a solid comprehensive thread on everything about the topic. So here are my questions:

1) Along with the seats themselves, what other hardware is needed? (sliders, mounts, etc) and will these be a direct fit or will custom fabrication be needed?

2) What needs to be done to transfer the belt-trensioner and airbag system components? I want the SRS system to be fully functional (don't want to have to worry about airbag light /codes for belt tensioner, etc.)

Any help, links to good threads, etc will greatly be appreciated. Thanks!

The seats chosen would dictate the mounting hdwe. needed, sliders/mounts are separate for types that have them available & you'd need to check if there is a mount for the seat you pick that fits your car.

Transferring all the stock restraint hdwe. may range from difficult to impossible, since the stock tensioner/buckle mounts directly to the seat. Driver's side on mine ('04) has a position sensor that could be transferred, though it wouldn't be functional without some custom fabrication (only good for not setting off the light). Passenger side likely has an occupant sensor, though I haven't investigated that (enough wires there, so it's probably present).

Most of the threads on this refer to transfers of stock seats between different model years, that's difficult enough as restraint systems changed many times.
