Re: In need of your help Skoolie!
Not sure if we'll be of much help, we're more of a rip out the seats and install a couch kind of crew.
Usually the seats are two distinct parts, and the bottom cushion can be removed easily. If that's the case on yours (2007 is far newer than I've had anything to do with), you could just cut a piece of plywood to fit the seat bottom, and reinstall the cushions on top of that. It would be much more akin to a bench, and the bars would be covered.
