Air-Ride Seat Installations: Show me what ya got!

Hey Everybody,
I'm about done patching my floors and I'm ready to install my new air ride seat. I'm curious to see what some of the wonderful folks here have done that changes out the seating in the drivers area.

At this point, I'm thinking of attching directly to the metal floor and either:

A: Frame around the outside of the base with wood, then insulate and plywood around it.

B: Lay down some dynamat or something similar, put diamond plate over that, and install/bolt through that to the floor. Then just frame around outside of that for normal subfloor.


C: Insulate and plywood like the rest of the bus and then bolt through that. I don't really think option C is the best idea. I already have to figure out a way to raise the height of the pedal an inch (compared to old seat). I also don't think it would be as firm.

Any advice, pictures, or comments are welcome. If needed, I can take some pictures of the area and the seat. Thanks!
