well I forgot to post this so on Saturday I removed the entire interior to prep it for a rustoleum base then raptor liner.

Sheared off two bolts that hold the back seat brackets in...looks like that own't be going in for awhile. I'm devastated

Oil Change today.

I did the same thing. Just wack it a couple times with a hammer and a punch from the inside and nut/bolt it when you put it back together.

I dont understand why people insist on taking the brackets out when they remove the rear seat...especially if you plan on putting the seat back in at some point, they are removable in like 20 seconds max. Makes zero sense to me.

I also used to leave the brackets in, but then I realised that the rear seat was out more than it was in, and the brackets were getting in the way when I would start packing for a camping trip, so I took them out to give me a more unobstructive space. I still have three bolts though, so I could still put them back...
