    These are new. The hook part side on hooks over the seat frame. Bolt slides in the slot in the floor. Nut on top .Dont know if these are steel or aluminium. Only go for the steel. They are around s/h but will take a bit to find. Slightly different height for middle n rear if you happen to have some of differing heights. Keep eye out for wrecked microbusses.
    AS far as I know lowlights will be the same as later bays but havent checked this.

    Cant remember and dont think so.[Ie ,all the seats the same] Think centre rear seats the same . All floor mountings and associated clamps the same . Rear seat had a change on the back squab as the 'hooks' where the seat locates are in a different spot but seat can still be mounted.

    I'm pretty sure they are all similar and pretty interchangeable.
    There are alot of splits getting around with bay middle seats in them,so i reckon you'll be right.

    Col that link is to the cheap seat clamps, also available from other outlets
    We strongly advise to use these http://www.thebusstop.com.au/search.php?q=seat clamp
    Rear and middle clamps different
    Middle seats can fit all years
    From memory the right angle bracket on the rear seat back is the only difference
