Third row tahoe seats in a rat rod

I aquired a perfect set of third row tahoe seats to use in my 50 studebaker pickup. These seats are the type that slide and clip with a hook into the floorboard of the tahoe. So underneath them theres a hook in the front to snap them into the tahoe floorbard and wheels in the back to slide the seats into the tahoe.

my question is this. anyone have ideas on how I can mount these seats in my pickup? theres not much protruding metal showing to work with. I considered building a box and weling it, but I cant figure out how to attach the hook coming out of the bottom of the seats, to the metal.

meat cleaver time ?

I've cut out the pieces out of the floors I have needed. punch a hole , battery saws all, or an old meat cleaver and sledge hammer. then shape to fit your floor and weld it in.
