Manual to Electric Seat

I have the opportunity to get bucket seats with the center counsel to replace my vinyl bench seat.

Currently my seat is manual, and the new driver seat is electric.

Any advice on where to get power for the electric seat from? I like clean installs, so I really don't want to run a wire from the battery.

Nobody knows where to "simply" pull power from? Is there a spot in the fuse box to tap into?

The connector might be under the seat, or not... just tap into a good 12v source.

d-s-d. If you wouldn't mind tracing it I'd appreciate it. I'd like to just get a Ford harness for it. Didn't think of it when we took them out of the wrecked truck.

Here's one you might be able to answer.

When it says "Not Used", regarding an empty spot on the fuse box...how do you make these "usable"? Can you just plug the right size fuse for the application and use a fuse tap and have your power?

I'm lost on electrical, as you can tell.

I found these too. I believe I can tap into an existing circuit and pull from that as another option.
