I have apc seats in my capri on custom fabbed rails an I love them. ebay has cheap seats if your looking for or anything new, if your in the used market look for fc rx7 buckets... I miss my fc now lol... or s2k and rsx seats.. they have pretty solid bolsters and also comfortable.. especially s2k's!

The 2+2 option in fcs were to reduce insurance cost... kinda rare depending on what gen fc whether it be a s4 or s5.. all fcs can be swap to 2+2, they are all pre fabbed, unless convertible like mine. first generation rx7s hsd same option

There is really nothing that is "bolt-on" that will fit the Capri, except Capri seats. Everything else will have to have mounts fabbed up.
Grab a tape measure and measure whatever you find at the PNP..If'll they'll fit in the space intended for Capri seats, you can make brackets, then there ya go....

I am currently putting a set of seat from a 1995 Lincoln Mark VIII.  I have the passenger side in, and will be working on the drivers side in the next day or so.

I have to say that these were "bolt" in...

They came with universal sliders. They literally bolted to the floor without any modifications. Just drilled the holes and fit perfect.

Seats are checkers special with Universal Sliders

I dont have the photos of them drilled to the floor board any more

There are 2 "ribs" that they sit on & you just secure them there. Literally took me about 1hr to get them installed.

Working on fitting these seats now:

 

 

Theyre from a 1993 Honda Civic hatchback. Seem to be much higher quality sliders, plastic, adjusters, etc... also much lighter.

The sliders actually look like they might directly interchange with the Capri sliders, however the Capri is 16" between rails and the Honda seats are 17" between rails. I'll probably cut & weld the ears to make everything fit

Mazda Protégé seat swap.  Pretty simple job and the seats fit nicely.  I sheared off the mounting brackets on the mazda seats and then used some heavy duty "L" shaped aluminum across the front span of the seats to tie into the existing mounting bolt insets.  Then bolted the seats to the aluminum span.  I used flat aluminum between the rear mounts and bolted that down too.

This is a very complicated case (car), a lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-yous.

From a 1998 BMW 318i. Heated with about 6 positioning levers for great comfort. Heat switches fit into a '94 console where the power window switches were with a tiny trim to fit. Had to make some attachment brackets, but I love them.
