Street Modified Interior?
What is a must have for the interior for a Street Modified car? My car is gutted and need to know what I need to make it legal for SM.

I believe you have to have some sort of front seats. Driver and Passenger, but no need for the rear seats.

I have seen some of SM cars also change their steering wheel to a quick release one and you can gut out the interior of carpets and such.

Stereos, aren't mentioned as a no-no, So I don't see why you can't take those out as well. ...

I did find out though have to stay in a minimum weight of 1800lbs. But with a focus, I dont think you have to worry about that.

Oh here's a link I found for Mods allowed per class:

^^ your link is a bit dated, so I'll add some things. First off, the rules are written such that if it doesn't say you can do it, you can't. Street Mod still requires a significant amount of interior.

-Steering wheel and steering wheel mounted air bag can be replaced as given in the street prepared rules
-Front seats are per street prepared rules
-Rear seats can be removed, along with any associated hardware and restraints
-Air bags, speakers, stereos, and similar accessories can be removed, as long as the resulting holes have a cover
-Interior rearview mirror and sun visors can be removed per street prepared rules

-Dash, trim, ceiling liner, carpet, console, hvac controls, steering column, door cards, and sound deadening, all have to remain intact
-You can make small modifications to make upgrades work, i.e. slight mods to a console for raised shifter, or cutting trim to fit a harness bar, etc.

If you have a hatch, I say the rear carpet and top cover is ok to pull out since it isn’t physically attached to the floor in the OEM configuration. Don’t forget to update/backdate to a center console without an armrest and get some manual doors and windows :D

Already have manual doors and windows. Only thing I really need to add is carpet.

Thanks for updating WRC_fan. I knew there was someone who would know more the ins and outs.

ThatOneFocusGuy, look forward to seeing your ride that you will create for SM.

It will be posted up within the next couple days in the Showroom. I have lots of work to do in a short amount of time.
