Surely little O' peasant me isn't the first one to figure this out. Working on a 70 GTX that was cut and full tubed into a race car back in the day. Making a street pounder out of it and my customer says it sure would be nice to get a back seat in there. Want to get rid of the race car looking interior. I've done it to several cars with mini-tubs so like I'll give it a shot. Told him to order up the covers. He stated " everyone says it can't be done". Pooie! After cutting out the cage I rounded up a seat frame and went to work. A little work on the frames and covers and vala. The seat sits forward a bit but looks way better than the race car interior.

Didn't really cut any off. Just made the offset on the ends longer for the bigger tubs.

Slick.
How does the package tray fit?
Looks like you just extended it a bit to fill the gap?

The top of the seat fits the tray as normal. Didn't have to change anything up that high. Seat fits into the hooks.

I’m making the seats out of hard foam then putting the cover on the foam. Tried cutting the frame but couldn’t get it around the bars. Duster race car in Stock class.

Ya I don't see how you could do this with a cage in there.
I think the white really sets it off.
Tubs? What tubs?

Nice job looks good. My old Pro Street 69' Charger was tubbed and still had the back seat. I couldn't do it with my 70' Challenger, so I narrowed the rear seat to fit between the tubs. There is even two roll cage bars that punch through the bottom of the seat cushion that go down to my leaf spring perches through the floor.

Real good looking work. You must have put some planning and thought into it.
