Default bench to bucket conversion

In my 96 SE I have a bench seat that is separated into two separate seates one for teh driver and one for the passenger. I want to put in two stock bucket seats from another Bonneville. Does anyone know if they will bolt right up or if there is any modifications that need to be made in order for them to fit?

Thanks

Id think it should, assuming they came out of another 96-99, the body should be the same all the way thru 92-99 but there are some noticable differences in earlier years. I doubt however that the seat mounts are ANY different at all, no matter what trim level its got, the body shells should all be the same

What are you going to do with the shifter? Buckets are on the floor in the console and bench is on the column

i was planing on molding my remote for my deck and my amp **** into the open hole where the shifter used to be. I dont want to go teh after market route because i want the interior to look as stock as possible with a few minor mods to set it off and get the exact look that i want.
