NO MORE BACK SEATS!!! updated!!!!

For those of you who have ever had anybody try to sit in your back seat, THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM FOR THEM!!! so while i was waiting for my clutch to come in i decided to take out the rear seats. i saw a long time ago a cobra with no rear seats and a box to make it look good. so i tried to do the same thing. took out the rear seats and seat belts and custom fit a box with full supports and fully bolted down to the car, so i could still put stuff back there. i made it out of a light weight birch wood. it weighs about 10lbs lighter than the seats. these pics are without the carpet on the box. im putting carpet on it to match the interior. i will have more pics when im done. dont know if yall will like it but i do. check it out. click on the pics to make them bigger.

after i removed the seats


with the new box



UPDATED PICS ON POST 24!!!!

I agree with you on the lack of space in the back. I think this is a great idea, and very practical. haha, even my little brothers have trouble squeezing into the backseats in my supra.

I never had issues with fitting people in my back seat? :dunno: I think I'll keep them. I'd rather have them than save a few pounds.

nice job, I always wanted to do something like that, but everytime i would start something would come up with the need of my back seats, so i just gave up and got rid of my passenger seat ^_^

The backseats weigh probably all of 10lbs. Not worth taking out if you think your car is going to be faster.

It's funny how the Mk3 is so much bigger and heavier than the Mk2 but has so much less rear seat and cargo space!

I did the same thing but I ripped out the box I made with MDF and will be making either a sheet metal(22ga) or aluminum(18ga) "box" with 2 storage compartments to keep stuff in.

Pics will be posted as soon as my car is running and I finish the box.

im talking the whole deal. brackets, belts and all.

edit- if you take out the sound damper stuff under the seat it all comes up to 44lbs. i just double checked w/ the weight index to make sure i wasnt insane.
