Nope. It'* a wide open area 92-95. A little fabrication work and it could fold. I've considered it but I can't find a car where some part of that system doesn't break.

just some hinges and clips for the tops of the seats im sure its possible but its gonna take some wild ideas cuz u got the problem of the back part sitting lower then the botom cusion this might be another spring project. i got ideas in my head but i can put them into words.

i think that with a little thinking I could make it work on paper.....on the car is a totally different story

here are the componets to make it work.

you need a hinge for the backpart of the seat
you need a realease and a lock to hold the seat in place


it would be really easy with parts form a cavy.......
