Im not familiar with any fords on here with such a mod. When i was a teenager there was an LX torana in my area with this mod...

Was a big job, i understand it needed full compliance as a result of changing the vehicle's seating capacity.

What model we talking about here?

i have 4 subs on my back seat and i was trying to find somewhere to put them i cant put them in my boot cause i have lpg so they wont all fit in the boot and if they did i would blow the boot lid open. so i was thinking about the bucket seats in the back and make like a console down the middle of the seats all the way throught to the front replacing the plastic on thats there.

haha why dont you just chuck your 4 subs and get 1 good sub? are they all bridged off 1 amp?
Got neons that flash with the bass?

As said above you would need to get the car complianced and replated for 4 seats.


My landau has buckets in the back and it actually has 4 seater on the compliance plate so ford wouldnt of bothered doing that if they didnt have 2

That would be a sweet mod if it was done professionally. Kind of like the current RX8 setup.

Sony Scorcher was an EA and it had buckets in the back with a custom console the whole way back, so it can be done.

I believe what john was referring to was to take the bench seat from the rear, modify the stuffing/support and have retrimmed as 2 lounge-a** seats in the bench as opposed to the st 3...

Get the lpg tank put where the spare wheel is, and just put the sub's behind the back seats.

And ffs, having four subs is great if you don't like your welds holding together.
