Default cars with !back seat

Pulled my back seat earlier on in under 10 minutes. Almost seems as if these cars were meant to be two seaters with how little effort it took . Anyway, I love the weight savings and the cleaner look back there, but the holes for the bolts that secure the buckets and some of the exposed brackets look a little ghetto. For anyone that has pulled their rear seat, what did you do to cover all this up? The rear floor mats just aren't hacking it since I intend to show the car in the summer. Eventually i'm going to pull the stock carpet and replace it with lightweight stuff, but until then i'd like it to look semi-finished .

Yeah, but my question is how did you cover the bigass holes in the carpet by those bucket bolts that seem to be 10x bigger than the bolts themselves for some odd reason .

I drilled out the spot/tack welds I'm not sure which of the to you call it and then I removed the complete seat bracket. I then filled in the holes left with some epoxy my dad brought me and this is what it looks like now.

well it's not so much the stuff on top, because I did the same thing and covered that with the floor mats. The holes i'm talking about are the ones that are more in front that are a few square inches for the bolts that hold the buckets in. Those I can't seem to cover up with the mats while still covering everything else, and they're real obvious if you're looking down into the car. I've been thinking of doing some cheap lightweight carpet in the summer time when i'm back from college anyway, so I think i'll just leave it slightly ghetto looking until then and cover the holes with the new carpeting.

btw, very nice work ssick. Are you doing custom carpeting over that or putting the stock back in? I'd love to see pics all said and done if you don't mind .

Light weigh carpet fixes the holes

I put duct tape over all the hole in the chassis... to seal them off.

the speed inc. carpet has an option where it's uncut, and you can get the full carpet and not have to worry about the holes showing then.

I'll probably be going home depot style on the lightweight carpet, but thanks for the heads up!
