I am not sure if you found the brackets and sliders yet for your seats. But I can tell you after being in the biz for a while that a lot of the seat companies here in the states (Sparco, Recarao, Momo etc) all use the same guy for there brackets. Talk to Wendel at Wedge Engineering in California. Wedge Engineering > HOME-BRACKETS

He can hook it up. If he doesn't have the specs he can get them or you can send them too him. But he is the man when it comes to brackets. And they wont brake the bank either.

To anyone considering approaching "Wedge Brackets" for this application, take note of my warning and do not waste your time with them.
They have proven to be incompetent, and to be kind, misrepresent their product.

My application: stock R107 and Recaro idealseat-Cs.
I provided them measurements to ensure their brackets/sliders fit - confirmed all is correct.
Clear instructions were given to me on how to mount the brackets prior to the purchase.

When the product arrived, it was a huge disappointment.
After many conversations with them, I was given three differing opinions on how to mount the brackets.
None were possible without either drilling new holes in the car, heavily modifying their bracket or both.
They provided a product which cannot be used - even if they did fit, the seat mounting position was completely wrong (unless you are a dwarf).

I would not trust them with mounting a bicycle seat.
