late model buckets for Fox Mustang

I have a 1992 Mustang that I'd like to put newer model Mustang buckets in. How can I make this an easy task?

There are three parts to all car seats, the seat itself, the adjuster bracket that is attached to the seat to make the seat move forward and backward, and the floor bracket that attaches to the adjuster bracket and the floor. All you have to do is take the floor brackets off of the bucket seats from your '92, and attach them to the new seats. You may have to modify the old floor brackets so the new seats and the adjuster bracket will bolt onto them, but that shouldn't be a very hard job.

He didn't say late model in his post, he said newer model.

Ogre wasn't criticizing your '92 Mustang, only your use of the term "late model".

Just having a little fun. I did say "newer" not "late" though. The seats are for the grandson's first daily driver. We've been working on a 1976 Firebird that he's getting as a gift but he has to pay for the daily driver. I'm trying to get the Mustang on the street before the Firebird. He's probably going to smash up the first one and I don't want that to be the Firebird. At any rate, the Mustang needs seats really bad so we'll be headed to the salvage yard Saturday...
