"The Chair"

for a while i have envisioned, taking a stripped down front seat, remove the brackets and most of the top of it, then reupholster it, this way you still keep the reclining function.... then put a 10" sub on either side, and one behind.... next coming off the strut towers would be 2 mid bass drivers.....

I already have the seat stripped down and ready to go, i just need to actually try putting it in....

this is my last week of work before i go on a month leave (paternity) so i'll have mucho time to play with my car then i do now.....

I have a spare set of stock 99's and have been wondering the same damn thing .... but with the floor height in the rear of the car along with the narowing of the rear section I would think much of the seat itself would have to be cut down. with the height dif between the rear seating area and the rear deck itself the back of the seat would have to be moved forward about an inch or so wouldnt it?

Wait the back seat is up on a rise. It makes it as tall as the front seats being up there. Think about it if you cut it down, youd be losing bout half your back rest. So there really is no point. your best bet would be find some hinges or whatever it is that makes the front seats recline and just do a mod. Cut around the seats either take away or move up the trunk lid (the little thing blocking it from reclining), possibly cut out the things out of the trunk that recline the back seats. It shouldnt be that hard of a mod unless you want power seats back there.

hmm maybe since 2 front seats wont fit in the back i could put one front seat in the middle of the back and make my car a 3 passenger car instead of a 4 passenger car lol

Dude that would look so gheto! But really if you can pull this mod. off let me know if it will actually work. Do you think that puting the seats on rails and when you recline, the seats go foward allowing enough room for it to go back. Does anyone know if that would work?

i say take out the back seats, and stick a water bed in there. we all know why you want reclining rear seats ;) , so why not just stick a mattress in there and call it a day?

Insanity! I have no idea why you would want to reduce the amount of seats in your car... it would be nice, but IMO only for a show car. Reclining seats in the back is a great idea, just don't know how it would play out in real life.

I think it might work putting the back seats on rails and and putting the crap to recline in it. Im going to try it when i get some spare change.

I think it would be cool, although, without major modding, you would only be able to recline with the hatch up, and I can't really see much point to it since it would be two buckets... if you have romantic ideas in mind, you might want to consider doing a rear bench seat, woot woot!

ReToM7... that wasn't my original thought on this but now that i think about it i could just adjust the seats that are currently in the back so they can recline all the way. So when you got your buddies back there its just a seat but when you got your girl you can just recline it all the way back into the trunk.
