    60/40 rear seats? How to on non 60/40 car?

    As most people know i am keeping the RS4 rep now after i have put the engine back to mostly standard.

    Seeing as it has been off the road for ages and haven't spent much time on it i would like to fit my S4 interior now.
    I have the hinges for the split seats but thats it ... Is there a guide out there that can help me or is this a go it alone idea lol??

    Is your rear bulkhead fixed, as in non-drop down seats?

    Yes i assume i would have to grind it out for the 60/40's as its only a thin sheet of metal.

    ive only ever seen quattro saloon models with split seats, so probably no holes to mount hinges? base should be a straight swap though

    The base is a straight swap, but the bulkhead needs to be removed. I looked at drilling the spot welds. but ended up cutting the section out, and welding some inch x inch angle down the cut edge, and along the floor./ The catches line up on the angle so are mounted nice and strong, and the hinges are mounted into the wheel arches and bent to make them line up to the seats.
    The side bolsters and the rear boot trims cover any metal work nicely

    Just the hole cut out, and the inch angle you have welded on also the seat catches really, just so i have a general idea of what needs to be done... cutting and welding are not a problem.

    Andy, without stripping the trims out its hard to get to the angle,i may get a chance over the weekend, however these are what i took just now
    Angle accross the floor welded to the floor and to the angle uprights


    The uprights go behind this catch, so that the catch is mounted to something solid



    The centre bracket, i used a nutsert gun to mount nuts into the metalwork


    And the trimmed look from the boot


    I knew i should have taken progress shots
