I put XT seats in a 86 GL hatch by cutting the mounts off the rails and using 1"x1" square tube with tabs welded on the 1x1 to mount to the floor. I'm 6'1" so I used 1"x2" for the front mount to give them a little rake towards the rear. I'll try to post pictures this week. Jay
The height adjustable seats DO work.

unfortunately the drivers side bracket actually snapped.... (crystalized from welding maybe???)
so I made new brackets (no welding) and the height adjust works perfectly yet... (can't slide seat forward/back though....) not sure what's wrong, but it's in the right spot so I'm not worrying about it....

just need to find the ones comfortable for you...
for me, the ea82 seats are definitely firmer, and better cushioned, but I prefer the shape and fit of the ea81 seats....

if you take off the bottom bracket from the XT seat, you should be able to make brackets just like my diagram above.
