Hi

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.

Thanks,

Trevor.
