Hey guys I'm wanting to do the rear seat delete for a number of things, first is that no one ever sits back there and also the weight it would save me since I track my car, also because I have racing sparco seats and would like a 4point harness to install. Anyone on here have one for their 99-04?? They sell for 150 on AM but that's a bit pricey I think. Thnks

I thought about getting once cause i go to the track alot also, BUT sure enough as i get it ill start needing my back seat lol get you some lighter rims and itll take more weight off then taking your rear seat out! Rotating weight makes a huge difference every 100 pounds is a tenth off your track times!

While the rear seats add weight, you do still want a little weight over the axle to help you from spinning too much. So it wouldn't be a huge gain in my opinion, plus I've heard less than positive reviews on the durability of those kits.

I took out my rear seats and I plan on making a custom setup for amp and sub make the trunk and rear seat area are flush. I like to surf and my short board fits without the seat. I don't notice much more spinning of the tires sence I have hard cheap tires with little traction and I have a heavy foot with a quick clutch foot. Lol

Well I just put one in my 13' 5.0. It was easy and have gotten quit a few compliments on it. I got it from lmr for 150.

I just remember how poor the figment was on the silver 5.0 from last Autox. I'm sure a much nicer one could be made for cheap.

Yeah, I wouldn't be happy with s fitment like his. It looked really cheap because of the way the top edges didn't lay flat. I could definitely make something to fit and look nicer. As for the next Auto x, I'm not sure if ill be able to get the day off work, but I'm looking into it. Are you going Ivan?

I would use the back of the seat rests as templates, use a large piece of cardboard and stencil the shape onto that. Then transfer the shape onto some fiber board, cut it down and make any additional adjustments to ensure a snug fit. Then final step is carpeting, it's a real similar process to building a subwoofer box. Yeah, if I can't come, you'll have to rep for Mustang Evolution alone! And beat up on joes stang.

it only saves a tiny bit of weight, very little overall, just FYI. The top of the back seat is nearly all of the weight savings. You can make your won easy enough and cover it with cheap material that matches the OEM carpet etc. I would use something VERY light as using MDF etc might even end up being HEAVIER than the OEM stuff.
