I'm currently fabricating 4 sets which are all spoken for. I can make you a set this coming weekend or next week.

My rear seat delete will be complete tomorrow but here's a progress pic and my old pics so you can see how it's built up:

Battery relocation with low center of gravity and between F/R axles for better handling. Massive main fuse, junctions, breakers all contained in the passenger side compartment. The driver side is being built for a storage compartment (tools, quart of oil, drinks, etc.) The box hardly weighs anything too. The only kind of heavy part is the MDF front of the unit. In fact, I hollowed out the 2x4 main brace for weight reduction and for a handle to grab, lol.






Off to the shop for professional completion. He redid my top and front panels, and made it all prettier :) The battery cover pops off and the storage door will be hinged.

Yup, or in my case, a new washer reservoir, coolant reservoir, flex fuel sensor and remote battery terminals. I fit a stock size battery too, so I don't have to give up any juice. Here's the finished product. Please excuse the sawdust. I haven't had a chance to fully clean it and I gotta get goin soon. The tiny bump on the door panel is from a screw that was used for a hinge at first, but due to issues using a hinge, we decided to scrap it and just do a lift-off panel. The carpet holds it in nice and snug. I'll probably just redo that one panel cuz I'm anal.

Looks like you're running 6.5" speakers in the doors. What kind are they? And was it worth it to move up in size?

What seat's are those? That's actually where I was considering putting my full-sized battery as well, any fire concerns and are how are you securing it? Which relocation kit did you use?

looks like a do-luck floor brace, made by carbing IIRC

Lots of questions, lol. The speakers are Boston Acoustics SPZ60 reference components.

Steve, it's actually pretty light if you can believe it :p The heaviest piece is just the 1/2" MDF front-most board since it had to support the two amps. The rest is a hollowed out 2x4 I used to keep everything aligned to each other, a small plywood backboard, and 1/4" particle board makes up the top pieces. I doubt it's actually added much weight over the rear seats that it replaces.

The seats are Sparco Milano II's in black/grey Alcantara. As for the battery relocation, I just planned it out on paper and bought all the junctions/breakers/fuse/cable that I needed. I'm not worried about a fire since all my power cables have fuses or breakers. I had a battery tray and tie down fabricated and it's bolted down through the body.

The silver bar is the Do Luck rear cross bar. It makes the car not feel like a wet noodle with the targa top off.

I know I am stumbling onto this post pretty far into the future here. I was hoping to see if anyone had any dimensions on something like this. I am just finally getting underway with my build and I was hoping to mount an air tank behind me. Please let me know! Thank you!
