So last night, I was taking the seats out of my car to put in my new racing seats. I got the passenger seat out fine, and I got three of the bolts out, but on the fourth bolt, the weld on the nut broke loose, and I cant figure out how to get a wrench to the nut. Has anyone had this problem before? I would really appreciate some help. Thanks.

An airhammer going straight through the bolt was my only option.

I got two plain black seats from JCWhitney. I think they cost around $50 per seat. They aren't the most comfortable seats, but if you want a good, lightweight seat, and you're on a tight budget, these are great. You might also want to order the mounting kit, which comes with everything you need, but i can't remember how much that cost.

I think I might just grind the head off the bolt, and worry about putting new bolts in later, since my car isn't even legal yet. I still need new seatbelts and front struts, but then it should pass inspection.
