I am in the process of restoring an 8 tourer. Sure keeps me off the street and out of mischief. I have never actually seen one 'in the flesh", and as the back seat that came with mine was basically a pile of rusty springs I am pretty vague as to what it should look like and how it attaches to the vehicle. There are captive nuts in the floor but I can not see how you would get access to these to attach a bench seat once it is in the car. Also I assume the back of the seat either lifts out or folds forward to allow access to the boot. Can someone post some photos or drawings.

What model type and year does you pile of springs fit in to?
