Back Seat Mystery Solved on ZL1 1LE

So apparently the ZL1 1LE didn't come with fold down seats from the factory; or at least that's what everyone thought.

Apparently it does, check out my video! Now I can fit my canopy in my car to take to the track, especially since the hot weather is well on its way!

Interesting. A definite advertised weight saving delete for the ZLE.

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Here I was thinking they saved weight by removing the seat frame, latch, and hinges. Guess the only weight removed is the latch release strap? Lol! At least it's easy to remove the back seat to actually save some weight if you want.

Meaning the Z/28 seat would fold down but not exactly like the 6th gen. The latch was present but hidden.

I find it funny that part of the weight reduction was the fixed back seat. What savings by not putting the rest of latch on it? 1/2 pound? Makes me question the purported thinner rear glass too. I bet all weight saves were tires/wheels and suspension.

Any way I love it and nice to find a little extra. Only used the lay down seats in my 2010 a few times but it is handy.

Good job.
