expanded under seat storage

Recommended Posts

I thought I would post what I did to the storage under the drivers seat. As you know, the little box doesn't hold much. This mod increases the space by probably 3 to 4 times. Basicly all I did was to remove the existing box and add an aluminum panel to close the open side torwards the vehicle center covering the driveshaft area. There are already panels in place on the front and rear of the enclosed area, and the outside side uses the inside of the lower rocker panel body peice as its side wall. Also, the floor is already there being the underside protective covering. I had put fairly dense foam between the 2 curved pipes behind the rocker panel, caulked all seams, added a peice of carpet and put foam seal strips to seal against the underside of the seat.

I've included pics. There is a pic for each inside corner and an overall view from standing behind the opened drivers seat. It looks a little rough and dirty in the pictures. That is because when I brought it in for new driveshafts, they had to remove the floor panel and the panel I added. This broke loose all my caulking and made my paint job look nasty. Before they did that, It sealed quite well without dirt getting in. You just have to caulk it good and get all the gaps.
