Hi Andrew.
Like Mike, I fitted mine between the slats of the front benches on our old MKII. See the following video to give you some idea where I fitted them, about 35seconds in.

The tracks were mounted on a hardwood strip the same thickness as the seats to bring them level level with the seat, bolted to two supports under the seats (you can just see this about 47 seconds in). Not too uncomfortable to sit on, and definately gives a better sheeting position than mounting on the side decks. Also means the side decks are clear – you’re more likely to be sitting-out up on the deck anyway!
