    04 seat's side blosters being crushed by overweight friend!

    hmmmm

    well my friend is overweight and I noticed when he gets out of my rex he sides on the right side bloster then gets out. I noticed today the side bloster is getting squished down and has a crease in it now. Is this repairable? Should I politely ask him to sit in the backseat?
    man I dunno what to do.

    he's prob 5'7 and greater than 200 lbs!
    It's prob not just his weight but how he gets out of the car, he is really out of shape. He can't step out without turning 90 degrees, sitting on the side blooster for a while then standing up.

    He gonna join the gym with me soon, I'm gonna turn him from flabby to stone

    I vote for having him sit in the back seat... better weight distribution too. j/k

    Sorry dont think your problem is fixable. What do you mean by a crease? Not something you can iron it out right?

    if you can't call him a fat bastard and tell him to stop f'ing up your seats - make him drive himself!!

    I was about 265 lbs and never trashed mine.
    I am about 225 lbs today and headed for 198 lbs.

    I suggest getting a new friend. There's no excuse for this. I'm a bit over 6' and around 225 lbs, and cause absolutely no visible extra wear on the seat. I might be in a bit better shape than your friend though.

    So in closing, quit making friends at Krispy Kreme.
    Mmmmm Kitty,,, the other red meat.

    Please note: no cats were harmed in any way during the making of this post. But there is always later.

    heh well i bet you guys don't sit right on the dang bloster! I mean most people should be able to bend their legs and get up without sitting on it, but my friend sits right on it and gets out! Heck he uses it to leverage himself out!

    No I don't think it can be fixed with an iron. It's the metal/plastic being bent. I hope it's not permanent!!

    I think we'll just be taking his car from now on.

    Does it go off too much like at low RPM for you?

    it's a seat, made to be sat on.. it's kinda like worrying about having a crease in your new nikes. Man, if your so worried about it, take the metal bar from under the seat that holds the side suports so atleast it'll give when fatso gets in and outta the car it won't crease up. Telling your friend to sit in tha back seat is probably the meanest thing you could ever say to someone. Fat people know thier overwieght and for you to remind them that they don't fit in your seat will probably devastate thier self esteem. It's a freaking seat man, I'm pretty sure no ever notices that they have creases in your seats unless thier as anal about things as you are.

    What can I say...modding is like an addiction. I love the sound of the hks going off......when it goes off at a low rpm, you really cant even hear it...its pretty much a whisper until you really build boost.
