Oddly enough the coated wire I'm using is picture hanger wire. Got it at Walmart for about $2. The Ferrules and Stops and key rings I got at Lowe's they were about $4 for everything.
As for getting to the latches. Fold the seat up, then reach behind the seat from the opposite side and pull up on the latch. So, for example if you are doing the "40" (passenger) side you'd need to be in the truck on the "60" (driver) side. You have to reach over the seat so that you can actually grasp the pin. You can do it from outside the truck but you have to contort your arm in such a manner that it is very uncomfortable to grasp the pin.
