Need to order a part, but I made progress
I picked up the parts on Saturday. The seller helped me remove the seats in 95-plus degree temperatures. He also tapped the holes in the sides of the rear seat area so that they would accept the bolts that hold the outer pivot brackets. All in all a great seller.
Unfortunately we damaged the Bowden cable attachment on the right-side seat-back release while removing it. I was able to find a replacement on an auction site for $18, so I will only experience a slight delay. As you can see from the photos, I have completed the vast majority of the work. After I install the replacement release mechanism I can button everything up, install the side padding/trim and declare the job done.
