    Before I get into it, how do the seat backs come off after I remove the outside pivot bolt? Are the center pivots just a pin into a bracket? (do you just take out the outside bolts and pull the seat back out of the center pivot?)

    You got it. The seat bottom has a bracket with pins, located at the center. Pins curve upward slightly. You'll have to lift a little as you pull the back towards you.

      Thanks, time for some new upholstery. The original seams are split where I sit. I think I might get some carpet too while I am in there.

      The back portion on my back seat has a bracket with a bolt. Then when that is removed you can lift the back up and off
