VW superbeetle floor pans

I'm working on replacing the floor pans in my 1974 Super beetle. The front quarters are solid, so I'm only replacing the back quarters (behind and under the seats) I've already cut out the passenger side because it was the worst (probably because thats where the battery sits). I want to buy replacement rear quarters out of JC Whitney or Mid-America but, the super beetle pans are much more expensive than the regular beetle pans. I was wondering if you could use the regular pans on Supers if you planned to use different seats. I also don't mind doing a little modifying...

You are coming up with different part numbers for the REAR half pans only because there were several types of seat brackets.

Up to 70 is the early.
71-72 look similar but have a wider slide track.
Then 73-up is the 3-point center tower style with short tracks.

A back HALF of a 73-up STANDARD bug will fit the same. I have no clue on which manufacturer would have the short tracks intalled on the pan or not. Some cheater halves might not have any tracks.
