power seat retrofit

OK I am try to mach up my model A. I bought some nearly new leather seats from a late model Mercedes e class. I have a few problems. First off one of them is all the way forward and the other all the way back, causing my Mach up to be a night mare. Secondly, I need to build up a set of risers so that the seat does not interfere with the stick shift. Not a big problem. The big problem is the controls for the seats are on the door panels, which i have. The harness coming off of them is a ribbon style. The seats have two or three different wire groupings that have regular wire plum ends on them. I have no idea what wire is for what. How do i apply power to them to get the seats to move, and how do i figure out the ribbon on the switches? If I get them to move so that they are both in the same position should I just by some manual glides and call it a day? Power seats are nice but this looks complex.
