It's possible of course. You would have to fabricate your own brackets to use in place of the seat rails, if you tried to bolt the seat rails to the floor back there you'd end up with the head rests touching the roof if not through it. As it is, they will still be pretty tall, maybe yank the headrests off before doing it. And then there's the covering the gap into the trunk and the middle of the floor.
JB welding the brackets OMG ROFL.....that'd be a death sentence to anyone back there in a crash...It could be done pretty easily, ditch the headrests, recover the seats, have someone fab up brackets to BOLT them directly in, and recover whats left of the seat bottom with carpet. I think it would be very cool and unique. You'd also have to fab up something for the opening that was left between the seats and the trunk, maybe some kind of hinged door that would allow you to use that as a pass through for oblong objects?
I tried this when I had my interior out. The seats would fit with the headrests, but the rear window would be completely blocked, and only short people could sit in the seats.
You'd need to fab a bracket for mounting the back to the bottom and get rid of the stock tracks. That would save enough room to make it feasible. I'd still keep the headrests off though. Add a firewall, and some carpet, good to go.
You guys need to think beyond the obvious. Take a close look at how thin the metal is above the tank and ask yourself how much room is available in between the tank and the floor pan to add the necesary strenthening to properly mount the seats to. If you just throw a bolt through there with a fender washer you are going to have seats that pull out in an accident.
Posting this mostly at Trunk Monkey's request - but I suppose it'll be convenient for me to also catalog it someplace for myself to look upon in delight, if when I finish. :D
Even before I moved into the new house I had my eyes on what possibilities might be in store for the large, unfinished...
I find myself posting on TCCOA about non MN12 threads. I know some of you are still going to work but since we all come from different walks of life, I thought some of you might find a thread to share recipes of stuff you like and we can learn from each other. Most of you folks are mechanically...
First, I want to state that I don't want to get into your financial business. I just want to know your thoughts on specific companies you are considering to buy and avoiding as well as companies that you currently hold stock in.
I recently got into stocks and did quite well with one of my...
Going to start a thread on this here. I imagine that in the next few weeks and months, and possibly years there will be much to discuss on this topic.
Missed opportunities ...
