    I'm going to do a write up on this later but I thought some people might be interested to see the progress

    Well first we need to gut the back of the rex.

    lets find out were to mount our seat. seatbelts, and seat hardware, exploration

    this is were to mount the lap belt bolts.

    this is were the rear upper seat back latch mounts to, right below the speaker
    [​IMG]

    the black circles will be removed to expose the lower seat mount clip locations
    [​IMG]

    checking were I'll need to either weld or bolt the upper seat bak pivot

    some mods will need to be done to the trim, but hinda was nice enough to mark the locations
    [​IMG]

    this little black circle plug on the passenger side is actually provide for a child seat teather attachment
    [​IMG]

    quick test fit to see how everything going to look and figure out were to mount the belt buckles

    As you can see almost all mount points and harware is already present in the USDM model CRX
    which makes this install actually a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. I need to weld in to nuts for the belt buckles and possibly weld in the pivots for the folding rear seat. it looks as tho they were rivited in before anyway I'll most likely be doing that work this weekend. I'll update with more pics when I get to that point.

    ------
    Hardware update, the bolts for the seat belt buckle and lap belt are 7/16-20x1in. , the bolts for the seat latch brackets and the pivot bracket are M6-1.0mm x 12mm
    also you'll need two 7/16-20 nuts to weld to the frame to be able to mount the buckle.

    where the hell are your feet supposed to go? I know that I'm short as fuck, and even still my seat was damn near all the way back, leaving maybe 2 inches or so between the back of my seat and the rear deck thingie...

    The main reason for this install is to be able to put a care seat in my car. and yeah a kid no bigger than say 6 will really fit back there

    almost every crx owner wants a rear seat.

    and a lot of people that have them take them out of cars , olike civics tegs and so forth.

    It's actually not that bad to sit in the back. I helped my buddy Miguel (Some know him as SIINSI) Install one in his CRX..

    FYI, you'll have to cut the rear hatch cover if you want it to fit.

    And you don't have to weld the tabs for the seats in.. If you got underneath the car, you can drill holes & mount them using through bolts. But you only have about 1/4" from the metal to the gas tank. Most say to drop the gas tank. IIRC, there were even marks on the underside of the car where you can see where the belt buckles should be drilled.

    this caused me a nostalgic smile. My dad had a 1963 vette. When I was small I thought the little hump behind the seats was the rear seats for my sister and I. We rode around everywhere that way. By the way does anyone think that the early 1970's dining room set that my dad bought with the $1500 he got for selling it is worth roughly the same as the corvette is now? Or what about the 56 gullwing mercedes he decided against?
