Re: How heavy are EB seats?

You can nearly HALF the weight of the front seats by taking the seat rails off.
Front seats without the rails are approx 16 KGS EACH.
With the bench seat in the back, do you mean just the horizontal part of the seat and not the upper seat backing?

Re: How heavy are EB seats?

yeah about 30kgs a seat. i reckon the back seat with the bolsters and all would be about 35-40.. so around 100kg in seats. lol :)

now, why do you need this information.. it seems very irrelevant to everything.

The bench itself weighs very little... it's just a lot of foam with a frame and some velour.

Re: How heavy are EB seats?

I guess you got alloy rims, but if you got steel rims and hubcaps, ditch em for alloy's and get some weight off.

Take the car to a weigh bridge and weigh it, try do it without you in the car, as your weight might fluctuate and muck up your readings when stripping out some weight from the car.

I got a Fairmont because it had 165,000 genuine logbook km's on it, perfect paint for a 12 year old car, alloy wheels with brand new tyres and has absolutely NO rust. all for $3750

Thats why I got a Fairmont............
