On my boxy you take out the bottom like any car then use torx, T47 IIRC on my car, to unbolt the seat belt re-tractors and those bolts double as the bolts that hold the back section of the seat in. After that it just slides upwards to release.

I have no idea to help out with installing the Bonnies, but I hope I helped! Good luck!

Damn. I thought I documented with pics the install of the rear bonnie in my SS, but I guess I didn't. Sorry.

There was a good write up on 9c1.com. It was probably the best documented write up about bonnie installs. But unfortunately, Capricecars inc closed it down a few years after purchasing it. Surprised

Just to finish this up
I wisely decided to get prof. help and assisted the expert.

the seat bottom was the easy part as the bonnie bracket was easily bent and ripped some out of the foam to align
with the hooks in the floor board.

the seat back definitely need fabrication for anyone else attempting this.....
i purchase 3 pieces of steel rod about 2.5 feet long. a bracket was custom made and mig welded to the bonnie seat hooks.
then we welded new hooks to the new bracket. these new hooks now lined up with the hooks in the SS.

lastly the hooks at bottom of Bonnie seat where the seat belt bolt goes needed to be pretty much bent straight, and lined up pretty good.

when i have more time i will write a detailed write-up with pics and post on my cardomain site.

Main reason for this post is i am selling the orginal SS seats... the post is the latest one in the "craigslist" find thread...as of today.
thanx for looking
