    Ok, so ive built a box for my sub and amp.... And it fits like a glove... But i think it would be much easier to remove the 60% side of the seat to have a little bit more room for the install process....... So does anyone have a link to a step by step or any info on removing the back seat? Seems like i have read it on here before, but i cant find it....


    Thanks!

    dont listen to Burg your gonna need a blow torch, crow bar a 12 pack of beer and band aides.. your gonna have to melt the bolts to goo then pry the seat out.. in the process drinking heavly.. and applying bandaids as needed.. then do your install. then re attach seats and melt bolts back over holes.. seat my rattle and move a little but hey its more fun that just lefty loosey righthy tighty..



    FYI.. Dont do this.. and try to blame me for you being a dumb ass and actually thinking it was a good idea

    yes, it's that easy. You could remove every single seat in that thing in less than an hour, no experience necessary.

    Damn.... I just went and looked at it... I know why i thouhgt it was so hard last night.... Haha well i was on beer number 6 or 7 by the time i got to that part but thats beside the point..... I was trying to go in from the side of the hinge part... There is a big stud looking thing there... Last night i thought that was some kind of cap over the bolt of somethin, and i tried to pry it off and everything else.... But now i see.. Pop the two little plastic covers off the back of the seat, and the two bolts are staring you in the face....


    Hope yall got a kick out of this thread... Haha

    i dont have any pics right now.... But i will for sure either friday afternoon or monday:thumbsup:
