blanking rear seat / seatbelt holes...?

Recommended Posts

hi all,

i'm removing the small 4 rear seats and seatbelts from my 90 at the weekend and wondered what best to do with the holes that this will create? i'm hopefully having a new rear cross member fitted in the next two weeks prior to a respray so i thought i would ask them to weld small patches to cover all the holes. i know this will look messy from underneath.

think gromments will be too flimsy?

any suggestions or what have people done in the past?

When I took my seats out I had holes about 1 1/2" across due to the dissimilar metal corrosion. :blink:

I opted for a sheet of ali plate over the whole of the top of the wheel box, siliconed around the holes, put down the plate and riveted it into position.

OR fit some cover plates from 2mm alloy sheet & flush [countersunk] rivet them on & coat with good underseal in wheelarch, or carry out a flush repair by cutting the rot out & inserting a insert/filler plate & a backing plate from underneath or get someone to ally weld new material in.
