The Deuce is an unknown quantity at this point
I've come to the conclusion that I need to pull my passenger seat to fit my longboard. I'm bored and don't want to strap it to the roof for a 6 hour drive from Atlanta to Myrtle. So it's going in the wagon, but it sits up too high and blocks the passenger side mirror when I put it on the seats.

If I can just buy one to get it out I will, but what size is that nut?

For the curious, the board is a custom shaped 9'2". It's slow and lazy, perfect for a laid back knee high weekend.

Thanks.

I'm going to pull the car back out into the driveway and take a good look at it tonight. It's cleaned up and half packed in the garage right now.

I'm still not sure what size its supposed to be, but I got the seat out using a standard stocket.

Dont worry, I'll take the bolts and get the right tool to reinstall the seat, I don't want it coming out accidentally.

why not just replace the bolts with something that makes sense, like hex or phillips/flathead?

For a couple of reasons.

1. They are bolts, and eventually I will run up against something else that needs this socket, like if I ever need to take out the drivers seat.

2. Most importantly, they are hardened. I can tell from looking at them that I would need something ARP to go in that hole, since I don't plan on having the seat break free in a crash. They were torqued in pretty good and I don't want a new bolt shearing off.

3. The socket isn't expensive, I just didn't want to buy the wrong size since I already had some stuff in the car and didnt' want to drive it to the parts store.
