Can anyone help me by posting seat hole locations?

My new seats have arrived, and I'm planning to mount the brackets tomorrow. I have a new fiberglass tub with no holes drilled yet, and unsure how far apart the seats are normally mounted.

I'm pretty sure front to back will be an easy match up, but can anyone help by posting how far between the seat brackets, how far off center, or how far from the inside seat holes?

My drivers side bracket looks like it has some extra tabs welded on, not sure if that was to center the junk seats that PO had mounted, if the previous floor was rotted in original holes, or what.

Bonus points for anyone that can help with rear seat or where front seatbelts bolt to.

Your best tact would probably be to bolt the seats to the brackets, situate them in the Jeep and mark the holes. My CJ5 had a fiberglass tub and I seem to remember there was some sort of reinforcements molded into the tub where the brackets bolted thru. That was a long time ago, not sure how the glass tubs are made now. I would center the driver side on the wheel. Put the passenger side in and situate based on clearance for articulating it forward, so it clears the dash, the edge of the door and whatever console you might have.

The base of the seatbelt mounts on the bottom vertical surface of the fender well. The top mounts on the roll bar. Use grade 8 hardware all around.
