1955 Fairlane Front Bench Seat Removal?

Hello all.

I'm in the process of removing the ratty interior from my 55 Fairlane 4 Door and I am stuck removing the front bench seat.

I found the bracket bolt on each side on the rear, however I can not see what is holding the bench sliders to the brackets on the floor. It LOOKS like there might be a bolt on the floor I can remove, but it's square shaped and I suspect that it is a welded retainer nut.

Look under the car..some of those used a welded stud and the nut is on the underside of the car..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Some of them used a separate bolt and nut, too. I did this '55 Town Sedan about two years ago, and I can't remember. I know it wasn't hard to get the seat out. This one was done using fabric original to the car.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
