Removed the front passenger seat

March 18th, 2017 at 12:53 am

Too excited/obsessed to sleep, so after some more online reading on how to remove car seats, I decided to take another crack at the front passenger seat.

Though the front passenger seat is only one large piece-- as opposed to the half a dozen or so pieces from the back seat-- it was nevertheless trickier. For one thing, I had to disconnect my car battery to prevent the risk of accidentally setting off my air bags or something when I disconnect the three sensor cables underneath the seat. Each of them were like unique 3D puzzles on how to disconnect them without breaking them.

On top of that, I still had to figure out how to physically unscrew the seats out, which was another interesting challenge. Not only that, but I also had to figure out the size wrench I needed. By the way, it was 8mm, future me. 8mm. Why can't they standardize this? Like make it... 10mm across the board?

Anyways, at last, I am triumphant:

And that concludes the strip phase of this project. With the car cleaned out and ready to go, now comes the real hard part, which is the build phase.

That will start tomorrow. I will take it nice and slow. Measure twice, cut once. Baby steps.

    OMG so cool. I am now wondering about reading blogs about people designing cars to live in it. DH's parents had a vannagut? is that how it's spelled in the 70s they retrofitted with a toilet?

    Thanks gang. Car builds are typically not so glamarous, even by mobile living standards. This is more of an honest account more than anything....

    LAL, RV/compost toilets are definitely a big deal. In fact, I have plans for some kind of emergency bathroom system in this vehicle as well. However, as you can imagine, it won't be anything as good as true RVs have them, given such a tiny space to work with.
