Default rear seat conversion possible?

I hate the fact that my 97 dodge intrepid's rear seat does not fold down. Do you think it's possible to convert it into a flip down rear seat? I dont care if it's half arsed ghetto, the car is a junker anyways for the most part.

I was thinking of a setup kind of like a chevy truck's tail gate, force a pipe through the bottom of the seat to act as a pivot point and fab some of the brace thigns that hold onto the pipe, then find a latch system that woudl work, or hell, I could just velcro that ish.

Any thoughts?

Anyone converted one before?

I just want to release the pressure in my trunk into the cabin, and I dont want to cut holes in my rear deck, nor remove the 6x9's in them. I also wouldnt mind access to my trunk from my cabin. I'm aware that most likely this would look ugly (for a few reasons, mostly the fact that the back of the seat is just foam and not carpeted.) but I dont really care as long as It can go back up.

I have the same problem with my Acura. The seats don't fold down, but on the (very) similar Honda Accord, they do. I know of people that have taken the folding mechanism out of Accords and used them in their Ack's, but I dunno about your car. I'd say go to a junkyard and start looking at cars that are anywhere similar (same class/style/whatever) and see if there's anything left that you can rob from that. It should make the job easier and will at least give you a place to start...

Just take the back part all the way out. My friend did that to his Concorde in H.S. and you could just set it back in when needed.

Well I went out and did that, so for now I'm doing just like you said.

Immediate thought at the time (my parents were home and my dad was working so I didnt turn it more than 16 or so on my head unit, I usually pound at no more than 24 on the unit) and my initial thought was that I was marginally louder.

I had taken off the rear back seat, removed all of that sound deadening bullcrap that they put in, that rat nest looking stuff with the tarry junk on it, and rtv'd some of the plastic parts that I knew were ratteling (like my third brake light)

Well my parents left to visit some friends and I got a chance to listen to it as loud as it goes and MAN its like a whole new system! Easily so much louder! Especially the higher frequencies. Im loving this sound.

I'm still debating whether I wanna tinker with a fold down thing or not... Throwing idea's around right now.

Cut holes in the back of the rear seat.
