Rear seat delete finished!

Here is a few pics of my self-made rear seat delete. The fit is 100%, gives it a two seater roadster feel. Next step for the interior is sparco 1 piece bucket seats and 4 point roll cage.

In the middle where the main support is yea, but on the sides it will not support 100+ pounds.

What was the point of removing the rear seat? Save weight?

Not have to give people rides and looks cool in my opinion. It can be easily be taken back to stock in 15 minutes plus it cost less than 20 dollars to make.
Plus when i put the roll cage and sparco seats nobody will be able to get in there

Get an x brace. Add stiffness and 2x as much coolness. But stiffness too.

Heard an analogy about convertibles. It's like a Kleenex box. Before you open it, hold it from the sides and try to twist it. Now, pop off the top hole and twist. Exponentially easily. Explains why verts have hundreds more pounds to get almost as much rigidity.

There, now you have quasi logic to justify an x brace... Cuz that **** looks awesome!

Yea an x brace will look bad a$$ but if i do end up getting it i will just get the laguna seca complete kit, i still have roll cage and seats to worry about.
I have seen the steeda in person and it doesnt look as rigid and well made as the LS.

that looks really nice! One thing that kept me from getting the kit from AM was it doesn't look really high quality. It may hold up well, but doesn't look "factory" but what you did does.

Excellent job man!

Thanks guys!

I didn't notice any mpg difference but it just looks so cool to look in the rear view mirror and not see a pair of seats lol
This weekend I will take it to a shop to get some red stitching.
