Smile Bucket seats for 1993 F150- It's tired I know plz look

Hey guys,
I am keenl interested in swapping out the old bench in my 1993 F150 Manual truck for a set of buckets. I read all over that this is a fairly easy swap, but I spent a whole day in junkyards all over Augusta, GA looking for a set.

Bottom line was, Even when I thought I'd found a good set, slipping them into a stripped junker f150 in the yard the same vintage as mine, they just wouldn't bolt up.

Now I understand there are no 'inside' holes for bolts on buckets where the bench goes, but the mounting brackets themselves were always askew.

My real question I spose, is do I have to take the mounts out of, say a bronco of similar year and THEN bolt the seat to the new mount? or do I have to get secial brackets or what?

I guess I've just exhausted myself looking for a solution. I see alot of posts where it was done, but never anything SPECIFIC as to what parts are interchangeable and where I'll have to get creative.

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope!

In my '82 F150 ext. cab the previous owner had changed the bench for two captains chairs and a center console.... The passenger seat had no bolts, the console had two self tapping screws, and the driver side was barely held in by two bolts on the outside bracket.... O.o

Anyway I'll look around and see if I can find something that'll be of use to you.

EDIT:
This thread should help you a bit.

It seems that Bronco bucket seats fit well, you just need to add some holes and bolts in the right spot. But I don't have any experience with this.
