Rebuild folded back seat
#1
Hi

Mach 1 73 with the folded seat option. I would like to make it permanent and remove the folded seat , instead hide some stereo speaker under it.
The thing is it only locks the on one side, so when driving it makes a clonk sound back and forth. Its very annoying.
Has anybody did something similar ?  Maybe a Wood frame to fix the seat and hide the speakers in.

Regards Rob

Most people go the other way and remove the fixed seat, lol. The structure is different on the two models.

I have read your post twice and I believe some clarification is needed. I originally read that you wanted to make it a permanent seat. But upon reread I believe your intent is to remove the 'seat' part and use that room for other things, like a stereo amp. Basically turn your car into a 'two seater'.

You can get rid of the clunking by adjusting the latch and the rubber "feet" on the seat. When I had a car with a fold down, I normally left it down. No one could fit back there anyway and under the seat was a handy place to hide things.

I was thinking something like this

Power amplifier etc could be hidden inside
