If you cover everything up with wood or something you might end up exactly where you were before weight wise, depending what you use, etc. The bottom portion of the seat weighs next to nothing and the back isn't really all that heavy, but of course it's up to you whether it's worth it.
I've pulled the rears to race and it isn't worth it. It isn't enough weight lose. But definately the spare tire and sub box. Or if your name is Wessy you could strip every extra peice of car and pile it against the fence. Sorry I don't have the pic maybe someone else can post it.

The backseat also serves as a very nice noise insulator. I took my backseat out when I did my third brakelight mod. Figured I would drive around for a while to see how I like it. I hated it. Alot of road noise comes in through the trunk. You can hear the fuel pump and my Borlas become very loud without that rear seat in place.
I hate that I did it a Norwalk and the roar of the tires on the track prep would make you deaf and the fuel pump is annoying.
