Default regal seats in a OBS

Long story short I am looking to keep tweaking the truck to make it a better winter truck and hauler. I will have 2 spare regal buckets and have an old worn out bench in the truck that needs to either be recovered or swapped out. the Idea is that i could build a frame for the buckets and run them 3 wide since I think it could fit and that way i could have a little side support. I have seen bonneville seats swapped into a truck on the OBS site but not regal seats how hard do you think this would be and if i did do the 3 across do u think sewing 2 of the buckets together would be a good idea or just run 2 seats and fab a fiberglass center console that i could maybe make into a sub box as well. toss any ideas you have I have 2 94 trans am bucket seats 2 gtp coupe buckets and 2 regal seats that could all be maybe used. There is a set of newer s10 blazer seats that are pretty nice for a pretty decent price at the local pick and pull i could also drop in too. this truck will be used mostly for snowy days and hauling so the seats will get worn alot which is why the trans am and gtp seats i would hesitate to use because of the bigger bolsters but i think the regal would be enough support but not have the added risk of wearing. post thoughts or different ideas to consider. I would get OBS buckets but I cant find any in the local driving area for a decent price
