Default Fold down rear seats 03 impreza

Alright guys everyone said it can't be done but I'm doing it fold down Wagon seats in my bug eye sedan. Every post about this says no but I've got the brackets for the seats and they just about bolt right in. Gonna have to weld a nut for the center lower hinge bracket and drill 4 holes in strut towers and mount two support brackets for the seat lock catch. Only other issue is the gap around the side where the trim panel is wider on wagons.

Got the hinge brackets installed center hinge required nut welded in other than that everything fit perfectly. Gotta mount the latching portion with a couple 4-5"x 6" 1/4" steel plate on the inside and outside of strut tower to support the latch bracket probably over kill for the small about of pressure on the latch but better safe than sorry and I'm not worried about the weight.

I'll get some photos of the latch brackets mounted once I get those in from not sure if I should leave the headrests look nice but block rear view some.

Any ideas on covering area around? Fabric bolsters on the sides or fiberglass surround for the sides and cover the seat belt s and vehicle structure area?
