Rear seat delete ?.

To those who have done a rear seat delete....did you happen to weight the seat bottoms and backs ? I’d guess close to 50 lbs. for both.

EDIT: the two seat back panels and seat bottom came in at 45 lbs total using a bathroom scale. The two small side panels on either side are easily another 5 lbs. obviously that will be offset by whatever I come up with to clean up what was the rear seating area.

EDIT #2:
Just noticed this....so..pretty good guess.

Thanks for fixing my bad link.
How are you going to go about finishing out the newly exposed areas, and petition off the trunk area ?

I do t plan to do that, as I will put the seats back on at the end of the season. More concerned about function than form.

has anyone found a source for a rear seat delete that doesn't include the roll cage?

Everything Ive found and asked about requires you to purchase it as a "pkg".

I'm not looking to install a cage at this point, but do want to fins some sort of tasteful way of covering up the seats being pulled.

Anyone?

or

https://ind-distribution.com/product?sku=RKP-F87-M2-RSD

might be other options for sale elsewhere, I dunno.

Or you can go cheaper and make it out of cardboard. Hold them on with velcro. And either paint them black. Or line them with alcantara with spray adhesive.

Thks Anthony.....Still $1800 is stupid money for a kit that should retail for $400-500 tops...

My car just finished production. So I'm 6+ wks out....

Soon after taking delivery I'm going to see a friend of mine who will fit a RSD Kit in my car with a carbon fiber "look"

If interested PM me so I can gauge demand and see if they want to make this a for sale kit..

Just get the carpet.

Then you add two arc bars for rigidity plus trunk/cabin divider.
