Password:JDM Dry Carbon Fibre Rear Seat Delete for Nissan GT-R

The GT-R is one of those very few supercars that is not only fun as a daily car but practical as well. You get 485hp a big trunk and four seats thrown in to make it a pretty damn good deal all round. Many of us however will use those rear seats as either somewhere to put the helmet when were off to the track or something else even less glamourous than that. There’s the option to remove the seats but then what?

Password:JDM have again hit the sweet spot between form and function with their take on the solution for this. A rear seat delete that leaves you with two lightweight and attractive rear 100% dry carbon seats.

The main feature points to note are:

  • 100% Dry Carbon Construction
  • High-strength, extremely lightweight, organic design
  • Tecnocraft ‘T1’ Racing Seat aesthetic design elements
  • Remove, replace, drop-in and install in minutes
  • Deletes OEM seatbelt hardware
  • Locks into place using factory mounting locations (washers/hardware provided)
  • Just under 7lbs for the pair.

Pricing was not available at the time of writing but to register your interest let the guys know by contacting them via their website linked below.

When developing a true function-over-form product for the R35, sometimes the end-result happens to be extremely aesthetically pleasing as well! We had to put our thinking caps on when bringing a real “game changer” rear seat delete alternative to market… the premise for the design and build was to delete the rear seat and delete all the stuff required for the rear seats. this premise came about since we find the factory rear seats near useless by design. there was hardly any leg room, so why even bother. reducing as much weight as possible without making this car look bare and naked has been our agenda since day one. The PWJDM Rear Seat Delete project has followed this directive to a T.

To maintain and forever perpetuate the infamous PWJDM baller reputation, we definitely had to build them out of 100% dry carbon fiber and mold them to fit both the body and the car like a glove. Building upon the successes of the Tecnocraft ‘T1’ racing seats (http://www.tecnocraft.com) from the premium side of Password Industries, Inc. We also kept in mind the interior “race bucket seat” theme and wanted a continuation of this effort for the rear seat deletes. what’s shown here is a true testament to PWJDM’s commitment to the platform as well as our abilities as a true tuner and developer of great products.

The first thing to notice would be the organic curvature of the rear seat delete, which provides structural strength and rigidity over just a simple flat design. Secondly, they have been molded in such a way to provide a tight, drop-in fit, and have eliminated the rear passenger seatbelt hardware – yes, you are correct, this weight-saving upgrade is strictly for off-road use only!
