Default Exo interior - front seats only ?

Seems to be a lot of people leaving out the interior for ease of access and heat management. Is there any benefit to leaving on the front seats and front "bulkhead" to stop crud getting in ?

I've found that much less dirt goes inside the car with just the front of the interior attached. It also looks better, but still runs hotter than wihtout interior.

I run mine as a 2 seater, just for the purpose of the lower sections to lessen the amount of stuff that enters, haven't driven my EXO much though but hopefully soon.

I'll go 2 seater as well, do you just cut the interior off behind the front seats or do you need to add some extra fixing/support ?

Why less dirt without the back seats? I thought back seats stopped dirt and stones from gettin into the car

I'm getting much less dirt inside the car with just the front interior. Of course the rear seats help too, but I'd rather have longer drive times.

the way I minimally vented mine drops my temps significantly (about 10*f). Used window screen to keep large objects from getting in.

The interior is dimpled for the screw mounting holes so I just cut out the back seats w/o cutting out any of the dimpled parts for the screws, pretty simple and straight forward.

I drilled a hole to the tube that goes sideways between front and rear seats and screwed in a small screw.
