Which is what I am looking at doing. Plywood is very strong, but with 2 x 250lb dudes sitting in the back and a head on collision it my just give way. Another alternative might be aluminum or even aircraft or marine grade plywood also with steal 3/16th tube cut at same thickness of the plywood.
That I like very much.
but now that I (we) know it works that can always be an upgrade, I'll keep 250 pound dudes out of my back seat till then...LOL
even thou to be honest with you even if something were to happen as sever as that the seat belts and seats are still bolted to the floor/frame if we were to get hit like that we would have bigger issues.
but just in case keep the heavy dudes out of the back.
