Convert bench to buckets

I have an 86 Chevy Silverado with a bench seat and have a pair of 94 Cadillac Seville 6-way power, leather, bucket seats that I would like to install. There only four mounting holes from the original bench seat and the bucket seats are going to need eight holes. Obviously they will require some sort of reinforcement. What do I need to do to be safe?

Simplest deal is to cut some plates about 3x3 out of 3/16 steel and use them like washers under the floor..you can make these into nut-plates or if you have a good buddy he can go under there with the nuts and washers and tighten everything up..You may need to put some spacers under the seat mounts as I have run into times when car seats are built a bit lower than truck seats..
