Rear Seat Delete / Storage

A good friend of mine is making these rear seat deletes. I am helping him by starting this thread mainly to gauge interest. Since I got dibs on the first completed one I figured I'd take some pics of it installed in my car and put it out there and see what happens. Granted, my car has dark blue interior but you get the general idea.

Xtraspace for your classic 1974 to 1989 911/930 Coupe,
Lightweight compartment box formed from 5052 aluminum.

Benefits:
Reduce weight, and add secure storage space
Remove those useless rear seats
Add space to secure belongings with a locking door, RS America look with no re-carpeting or modifications!
Black Silverknit carpet from APPBIZ. They get shipped to Appbiz and they are covered there.
Door on top provides better access, Items can be stored on top of it.
Interior of door is clad with OEM match Perlon
Improve the look of your interior, looks like a factory option!
Frame is Aluminum 5052 with a thickness of 0.050 inch = 1.3 MM
Door is Aluminum 5052 with a thickness of 0.090 inch = 2.3 MM
No drilling or modification necessary, uses existing mounting holes
Weight 8 lbs. 12 oz. (without carpet)
Weight 10 lbs. 12 oz. (with carpet)

Introductory List price $795
After introduction period List price will be $895

The idea is to market them through our host. I can tell you that this is a good, solid product. Well thought out. Very easy to install. And surprisingly roomy inside as you can see from the pics. Right now there are 10 units ready, all for g-body. Design for 964/993 is already in the works. Also cabs but need a test car. Then maybe 996/997? We'll see. First thing first though...

Best of all - MADE IN USA !!!!! (well, except maybe the little latch but everything else is)

His name is Damian and goes by k9doog here on this forum. feel free to ask him any questions.

carpeting or modifications!

Very useful product w/an excellent look..

What are the prospect of purchasing an unfinished unit?
Not everyone has Black Silverknit carpet, and/or one may even want a different material finish.

Would think this would also affect the price as;
- It does not have to be shipped from K9doog to Appbiz and then on to the purchaser
- No labor & material charges for covering as only the raw box is being purchased

Just curious as I like what I see.

Thx

Great idea. Would also make a great place to mount an aftermarket ECU inside.

You are right, and yes we are going to offer a raw version, aluminum finish, so you guys can customize it for your car.

Thank you for your feedback.

+3 on unfinished and possibly IKEA style screw/rivet together kit. Might reduce shipping cost to pack flat.

I would like to be very clear that the unfinished rear seat delete will need to be upholstered, because the door have a gap for the carpet, there is no way to fill the gap without upholstered.

The Rear Seat Delete is on the Pelican catalog already, this is the link:

https://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/shopcart/PORS/POR_PORS_911RSD_pg1.htm

The are two options:

- Upholster with black Sivlerknit
- Raw aluminium

If some one want it in another color that APPBIZ carry to match your interior it's possible too, just send me a PM, it will take 10 days to ship, the work that Appbiz does its very professional and looks awesome.
