The US seat base have those holes pre-drilled which is nice and installation is straight forward.

    The back piece is a little different which involving swapping the frame of the back piece where the hinge and a "C" hook for the new seat welded on it. The original cover from the donor car has a zip going from the bottom all the way to the hook. Since the one from the donor car has a different pattern than mine and I would like to keep mine to match the rest of the seats. So fitting the frame with the "C" hook in the US ver, seat cover take a little bit effort. Once fitted into position. I cut the cover and the foam underneath to match the "C" hook and that's it.
    More importantly, where did you source the parts and how much should you expect to pay for it?

    I got them from a Junk yard in Hong Kong, Kam Tin to be more specific if you are familiar with the area, while I was there for vacation. Paid ~$190 for the whole LHS 2nd row seat assembly since they are attached. Disassembled the 7th seat and took the frame of the back piece. They are all fitted into my luggage.

    You may be the first in the US to do this! Does your state allow unbelted adults in the back row? That's probably the biggest hurdle unless you can use latch anchors for a car seat in the middle.

    I think the middle seat was never intended to attach any car seats. That will be just for my rare occasional local trips that need to bring the 7th person on board.

    I just used the info from a thread in the how to section. I still haven't installed the passenger seat. My wife REALLY like the arm rest. I'll post pics when it's done. It's a pretty simple job. You use the top and lower seat pad from the 3. You attach the lower seat foam and cover to the 5 seat pan then bolt it to the 5 seat track. Took me about 45 minuets to do one seat. I'm sure the passenger one will go faster.

    Finally put a stainless steel tip onto the after market replacement muffler. Took over 3 months to arrive from Aliexpress, and surprisingly it is made of stainless steel not a cheap chromed steel.
