Seat Torque

I have done a search but came out with no luck. Does anyone know what the torque specs for the front seats are?

45 ft lbs for the rear seat striker bolts

Tighten until the head shears off, then back up 1/4 turn.

I personally wouldn't get my torque wrench out for those particular bolts. Two grunts worth with a 1/2" ratchet wrench is the tightness those particular bolts get from me.
