68 bucket seat tracks/ bench track on bucket seat

I picked up a set of 68 buckets a while back,the driver side was power, but the feet were gone from the right side track. Brett b. hooked me up with some factory bucket seat brackets for my floor pan and 1 driver side right hand track, which I got broke loose and working,I intended to cut the feet off of it and put them onto the power track,which I now know isn't gonna work, so today I just happened to act on a random thought . So I dug out a pair of bench seat brackets I kept off of a junk seat. took it in the GarageBand bolted it onto my seat frame(driver seat/left track, and started measuring between the two seat I now had with normal tracks on them, and I'll be damned! It works! With maybe 1/8" difference I would say is due to them being tweaked bouncing around a couple of different garages for years, only real difference I saw was the lever to release the track is longer and bent different, spedecut will fix that!

I haven't had a chance to try them in the car yet, I don't wanna weld the floor brackets in until I do my floor pans , but next time I have a chance to pull the bench out I will put it all in place and post a confirmation, but I'm pretty confident it will be fine.everything measures out well
