Sedan rear seatback in coupe?

Just curious has anyone ever fitted a sedan rear seatback with head restraints into a coupe? can it be done?

IK it sounds weird but I'm just thinking about the safety of the poor buggers I might stick back there when I get my coupe... that and I like to be unique if I can be.

It fits, only the lower portion is different.

The lower part fits but you'll see the end of the floor carpet if you look carefully in the corners because the sedan seat corners were rounded for better access, coupe seats were more squared off.

The back portion fits, I was only mentioning that the lower part is slightly different.
