    RE: CAUTION!

    This is a very interesting topic, worthy of its own thread. I don't commonly put anything hefty in hatch, but on those odd occasions I've always assumed the seat itself would save me from a flying paver or lawn mower.

    If you have any pictures of your vast history of FIATs I'm sure I'm not the only one that would appreciate seeing them.

    I ran with out a back seat for a year and then put it back in for autocross classing reasons. I honestly prefer it in. The loss of space is pretty much negligible, the only negative is that the entire cargo area isn't quite flat. Plus imo the car needs all the weight near the back axle that it can get.

    Advantage of not having it is when your buddies decide a late night trip to IHOPS is in order and the question of who's driving comes up.

    That said, I prefer it in

    Ok, just thinking aloud here.... how about leaving the seat In, and making a hinged platform for the cargo area to bring it even with the seats folded down. Then you have some storage under the platform as well.

    I'm very happy I did it. Took about two hours, and you need a socket wrench and a Torx 45 star tool to get the center post with seatbelts out. There is a huge improvement in useable cargo room, Also I used 1 x 2 pine every 12 inches as structure underneath (left to right) and 1/4 plywood - 2 pieces and 1/2 inch carpet padding underneath and multiple layers in between the left to right ribs so there are areas with 3-4 layers on padding. Finally a rubber bottom ribbed carpet screwed into the plywood in 10 spots with short black screws. I would say I lost 1.5 - 2 inches on the floor but gained a level surface. Everything is level with those front edge (rear-seat bottom) metal supports which stick up about 1.75 inches and are welded to the floorpan.

    I very much like this solution, someone on the forum did something very similar and keeps an emergency kit/jumpers underneath it AFAIR.

    I created a template and cut out 1/2" OSB plywood with carpet (upside-down) under the plywood (keeping wood off the fuel tank pump & wires area). Back seats are easily removable.
