911 seat question... Yes I searched.

I have a 1986 911 and I want to store the sport seats and put in a pair of 1979 cloth seats I bought out of a 924. In searching the site I found the 86 911 seats are held on with 6 bolts and the 924 seats are held down with 4.

The questions I have not been able to find a conclusive answer to:

Can I direct bolt in the 924 4 bolt seats without drilling holes? Can I use the existing hardware to bolt in the 924 seats?

Will the 924 seats sit to low? high? once I get them in?

I do not want to drill any holes, buy any new hardware (bolts) etc, I am trying to see if this is direct swap, plug and play so my perfect electric sport seats and get stored until I lose 90 pounds (boy they are tight) OR until I am ready to sell the car.

Thanks in advance!

From what I can tell you from my experience, my 911 seats were/are held in by four bolts ('75 S). I removed the front seats and I am putting in '87 944 Turbo seats and they have the same bolt pattern as the '75 Silver Anniversary (ie original seats) even though the 944 seats are electric. The early 924 seats/944 seats I thought were all the same bolt pattern as 911s from any year - except that the water cooled cars had higher backs.
