Cool Sedan to Coupe Seat Swap? Will it work?

Hey fellas, as the title suggests. Will it be a straight sway from the Sedan to 2 door coupe? or will there need to be some modifications done to the rear seats? anyone ever done it before? or heard of anybody do it? found a set of leather seats and wanted to do a swap... any help greatly appreciated. Thanks from down under!

Do the sedans have the "tilt forward" level?

You might need that to let riders in the back seat.

I don't think all the sedans do.

You can swap the seat covers and cut for the level on your current frames if you need to.

Just measure twice and cut once. No second chances here.

I just attempted this. the problem is the flip forward part. I disassembled the entire passenger seat to find out theres one part that i cant get off without welding...

What I did was after it was all apart; I put the new leather bottom on with the old cloth back, and put the leather on.

If you want more in depth just message me i have some pictures.
