Stock Seat Weights

Since my sparcos aren't here yet I decided to remove the seats today and weigh them. All weights are seats and stock brackets only...

Driver's seat - 47 lbs
Passenger's seat - 40 lbs
Backseats - 30 lbs total (not very heavy)

This doesn't include belts or motors yet. I will post those weights later once I remove them and get the harnesses installed.

And I will let everyone know the weight of the sound deadener I am chipping out of the trunk when I ever finish (pita...)

6 point roll cage I hope
The car isn't going anywhere right now and will keep the stock belts until I (eventually) get a cage installed or fab up a temporary harness bar. I could bolt them to the backseat locations if they would reach.

Will let you know what I figure out...

Are you sure you didn't have a seven pound weight in the back pocket of the drivers seat when you weighed them?J/K:p I wonder why it weighed more. I had no idea they were that heavy. They didn't feel that heavy all the times I pulled them out. Maybe I'm just stronger than I thought....

"I wonder why it weighed more"

Probably the lumbar support adjustment that's on the drivers seat and not on the passenger side.

Just a guess.
