Re: Remove rear seats

Fully agree that it is frustrating when people ask a question and do not give any comments back on how it went, would be nice as well to know if the build info exists behind the seat, etc. Looks like the person joined July 2018 and this is the only post in all that time so I wouldnt get too excited ...
