Smile Rear bench seat backrest fold down mod

Well here is another take on the Rear Seat Back Rest Fold down Mod. I had been wanting to do this for a while, one of the main reasons was to have a place to set things that i did not want carried on the Rear Seat and also an easy access to the rear window for cleaning of the glass. Well here is what I did.

Took a piece of hard condensed plastic (not sure how you call this type of plastic) and cut 2 pieces, 3/4" x 13" x 2.5" and drilled holes into it, 2 for the bolt area and one for the alignment pin of the seat.







Did the same for each piece and then cut a steel pipe to make support spacers to give the seat more solidity in case of impact.





unbolted the seat and installed the new spacers.





A little anti-seize done not hurt and the rear bolts must be be getting some sort of humidity as they were starting to rust.









Now for the Back seat rest the 2 clips that clip the pins on the back of the cab, the point of this clip unit has to be grinded down about 3/16th I noticed that the cab clips are not even. one is actually angled a bit higher than the other, the reason I did it this way is that if you put a 1" piece on the floor you loose the amount of bolt holding the seat, at 3/4" there is enough bolt to safely keep that rear seat attached. The 3/16th I removed makes it that the clips don't hit the hooks when pulling forward or putting the seat back to its location.

Here is with the seat up



And with it down.



Also, way more easy to clean the rear window now.



If you have questions let me know.

When I added my fox box it came with these spacers and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to let the back of the seat down. Am I missing something?

the spacers may not lift the seat high enough for the back hooks to be higher than the cab area they hook into when the seat is down, Trim off about 3/16th off the 2 hooks that are in the back of the backseat that grab onto the cab. Just unscrew all 4 bolts and lift the seat up to the point where the back rest is at its highest point, usually around 60 degrees, then lift the seat so the back rest unhooks, trim them and then put it back like it was, it should unhook now everytime you put the bottom of the seat at around 60 degrees upward
