EG Honda Civic - Rear Seat Delete Kit Install - Wrenchin' - Who Needs Back Seats?

Ditch Those Rear Seats. Look Good Doing It.

Htup_0805_01_z+eg_honda_civic+stock_interior Photo 1/21   |   The first thing to go is the cargo cover. Yes, it'll fit with the seat delete kit in place but won't make much sense without back seats. Save the weight, ditch it.

The benefits of shedding that rear interior are many. It'll be lighter. An EG's back seats, carpeting and spare tire cover weigh almost 37 pounds, which means you'll go faster. It can look better too. There's no denying the serious persona only a stripped-down hatchback can give off but, perhaps best of all, the days of getting stuck with carpool duties will be long gone. About the only downside is just how crappy getting rid of that rear interior can make some cars look. After all, underneath those nice padded pieces of cloth lay smelly spare tires, dirty fuel pump covers and bits of sound-deadening tar nobody wants to touch. Until now, the solution meant an expensive interior paint job or an equally costly makeshift rear carpet kit that may or may not fit right depending on who did it.

K-Dezines' rear interior delete kit addresses all of these concerns. Yeah, at 39 pounds their standard kit is slightly heavier than the factory pieces, which arguably defeats the whole weight savings thing, but consider the 400 pounds or so you'll drop not having to lug around the rest of your crew. The K-Dezines kit looks good too, with carpeting available to match just about any interior out there. A couple of screwdrivers and a drill are all that's needed to make quick work out of one of these kits. K-Dezines also offers a plastic kit designed for the weight conscious. The race-inspired kit is made of corrugated plastic, weighs 20 pounds and attaches to the framerails using Velcro.
