I haven't done a set first hand, but the rear seat will be too narrow. The one I saw done had armrests fabricated similar to hardtop armrests. Then a filler panel added to each side for the back rest.
The front seat should just require brackets that fit the floor and provide for the seat to bolt on.

The side filler panels Mike is referring to will look something like the ones used in the 70,71 72 chevelle back seats. They are made from metal, might work or could have something bent at a sheetmetal shop pretty easy.

The pics i have seen showed them building a stand or a platform for the bottom. Don`t have any pics to show you. The back shouldn`t be very hard to attach, It should catch on the hooks like the original and if they are too wide apart you can reattach some closer together.
