Rear Seat delete project (pic updates often)

****FINISHED****
6/13/2011

Tell me what you think.



------------






^seatbelts removed


^cleaner c-pilars imo

Earlier i picked up red suede fabric for the inserts. Im wrapping the red suede over 2 thin hardwood boards and then putting in red mugen floormats to match.

Tomorrow im cutting wood into the right shapes.

--------
Wood is cut and fabric is being applied today.

It's a great idea, I just wish you'd go about it a little differently.

Mugen doesn't make floormats for us by the way.

In for progress. How much does the Accord bench seat weight? The CL bucket seats in the rear arent real heavy, but i dont use them and was thinking of removing them as well.

Why don't you just shave and tuck everything and leave it open?

Also, while you're at it why don't you remove the sound deadening. I agree with Brad - good idea, but needs a different approach. While you're at it, take out the seat belts, who are they going to be for??

There's tons more you can do.

I know your goal may not be weight reduction, but why not do it anyways while everything is exposed and accessible? My $0.02.

How thick/dense/heavy are those wood panels? I hope neither of those mentioned factors apply to them lol.

^ sounds like a project you should do and show us the results Nikita.




I actually thought about your suggestion of tucking wires, remove sound deading material and even perhaps a professional paint job to make it look clean.

but, not sure I wanna pay for the paint job for the trunk and rear seat, etc. (I detest a rattle can spray paint job)

Hey bro, if you check my turbo build thread on 6GA, you will see that I am already many steps ahead with these exact plans

I'm going for a clean DD look. That's why the carpeted panels are there in the first place. I'd gladly remove the sound deadening if you can tell me where it is and what it looks like..

well, yes you are.

40 pounds of sound deading? $hit, I might wanna re-think tackling that job. It's teadious work that I don't wanna deal with but...I might have to convince myself to do it.

You and me both, although I'm taking a different approach without focusing on the weight loss. Can't wait to see how yours turns out though, I'm sure that was a ***** to scrape all the junk off the metal.

Well Props for the effort.

.....but you now have something that looks like a seat, that you can't use

maybe install some boom-boom in those new panels?

well he did a great job with the fitment on the bottom, but that top part just doesn't look good, maybe using two pieces of wood to get a better fitment would have worked

better yet, just use the bottom part, and leave the top part oem

We're just giving our honest opinion. If the OP can't handle constructive criticism, that's his/her problem.

As an example of an incredibly executed rear seat delete (that I'm using as my inspiration):







Now if someone can even get close to a rear seat delete being half that nice, it would be remarkable. Knowing that it's at least possible, it's hard to drool over this OP's work. The effort is appreciated though, as it's nice to think outside of the box sometimes.



For those that think v6p judges too harshly, go back to 6ga where they all hang on your nuts no matter how pathetic something is.

Does it really matter? It can still be replicated, it's not an impossible design at all.

well yes and no

replicating something is one thing

but doing it with a fit and finish that looks OEM is another story

Like I said, it's not impossible. Give me some time and I'll show you.
