Appreciate any advice.

It's possible to fit GTV fronts quite easily by adapting some generic aftermarket Mini seat subframes, see these posts made on my old account https://www.theminif...neon/?p=3686444 and https://www.theminif...neon/?p=3686665
That was done with some basic tools and bits of scrap metal in my flat during lockdown, no welding needed! That said, if I were to do this again I'd look at mounting the seats a little lower toward the floor as they sat a tad high for me.
The rears basically just sit in place with no mods, but it's quite easy to fashion a simple mounting solution that'll fix the back permanently into place.

Is it the alpha GTV 916 rear seat that fits (fairly) straightforwardly in mk4 mini? And is there room for the rear headrests that come with these seats? Ta
Yep those are the seats I fitted with relative ease. Mine didn't have the headrests for the rear so I don't know for sure, but I can't imagine it would be a big challenge to fit them.

Much appreciated - like your idea with the aftermarket frames bolted to steel bar. I'll keep lookout for some of those going for a decent price. Cheers mate!
