What do you think about a back seat delete?
 
This kit from K-Dezines looks cool, but even though the back seat is cramped, I don't know if I'd do this. How about you?

I need to keep the option of potentially putting a person in the back seat, so I'd say no.

I'm not a fan of "backseat deletes" in general, because most of them look like the backseat was removed, rather than looking like a car without a backseat. It just leaves an empty space back there.

My dog uses the back seat.

If you need the weight loss to go with other weight loss "mods", then I'd say it's worth it.

Entaille 01-27-2012 04:14 PM

there is not enough of a weight loss benefit to even consider it for me.

can you imagine how much smaller they could make the stang if it was a 2 seater coupe?

Only rear seat delete kit worth it (for looks only IMHO).

The one posted in the original post is nice but too expensive. And no way, shipping weight is 60 pounds so that thing weighs more then the rear seat.

I personally need my back seat. Toting around a buch of friends (especially of the female variety) makes the back seat indespensible. LOL

In my college years, some of the best times in the back where in the seats with female veriety :icon_wink: Awwww the good old days...although, no back seat mean more room to lay instead of sit...wohahaha :icon_angel:

the new Laguna Seca Boss comes with no back seat. I'd have no problems with that, except for the fact that there's no real place to keep my Sunshade and big water bottle where I can get to it!
Oh, And I always have the rear seat belts buckled. Looks great!

Unless you've reached the point where your car needs a cage, there's no reason to delete the rear seat.

My rottie is too big for the back seat so I've been looking into a cost/weight efficient delete. I've been told deleting the seat increases NVH but I plan on looking into some dynamat once I find an installer.

What? We've actually got a back seat???? I've tried sitting it in and it's impossible.. The only way I can drive is to have the front seat almost touching the back seat.. Maybe if you're under 10 years old, but that's about it..

I've also pulled out the seats. They're truly only a couple pounds. Nothing really performance wise to save.

wcgman 01-28-2012 06:41 AM

The rear seats are very very light. You really arent going to save any weight pulling them. @ 60 lbs, this replacement would probably increase the weight. My friends and family rarely use the backseat, but I think it's better to just keep it as is. As for sound, lay down your seats and drive around with that cargo area open. I thought my rear end was going out until I remembered I had dropped it a few days before and actually looked back there! lol

I like replacing the rear seats with subs that looks cool and sounds awesome

Right! And you still save the trunk space since the subs and amps would fit completely in the back seat area.

I like this kit it looks good plus the bottom has storage compartments.

Ditty 01-29-2012 11:27 AM

Got to keep my back seats. For one, the Little One is still in the larger Child Seat and I can't put her up front for a few years, and it's a LOT more practical to have it in the event that I take the car anywhere and someone needs a ride. I've had 3 full sized adult passengers in the car in the last month. Thankfully the Child Seat is a BREAZE to take out and it fits in the trunk...w/ my guitar!!!
