Re: Other: Removing Factory Seat
In Response To: Other: Removing Factory Seat ()

I've cut seats out of a few Explorers and Romanys and the occasional Greenlander. Lots of people have trouble fitting in those suspended seats. I just cut a kerf or two in the bottom of the foam with my table saw so any water can slosh front to back and not pool up in front of the seat. I hate a wet butt, so having any slosh go under the seat rather than over makes me happy.

Anyway... just leave enough of a stub to mount the back band, unless you're using a foam butt bumper.
