What frame have you used?
Does the universal frame fit?

But why would you want a slideable bucket seat.

Because the bucket seats are supposed to provide a solid attachment between body and car in conjunction with harnesses. You won't find FIA spec sliders and sliding the seat will compromise the harness fixing point locations.
My Sprints have bottom and side mounts, I created my own mounts for them with something along the lines of 3" x 2" 1mm box section, thy bolt to the seats and have studs welded in so you drop seat and bracket into the floor holes and bolt up.
I'm not a fan of the mounts you can buy because they still leave 4 point loads , just 4 points of metal that need to be ripped out to let the seat leave the car. I have some steel plating under the car which ties against the seat mount so that the area of floor that is resisting the seat's exit in an accident is much much higher, but that's not as good as mounting the seats to a roll cage.

Beg to differ:
Although I do agree - if the seats are for competition and used in conjunction with harnesses and roll cages then proper fixed mounting is by far the best approach. Ideally I’d keep them off the floor completely.

Are you intending to impress the other guys, down the pub, or will you be competing ?
