seat mod help asap lol

So i took the worst friend possible ( he can talk me into anything) to Home Depot. Instead of buying something cheap that would do the trick i walked out with a Dewalt sawzall with a nice hole in my wallet.......

I just got my seat out, and was reading jasons "HOW-TO" and it's a little vague as to where exactly to cut. I mean i know there area but if any of yall could take this pic \/ \/ and PS or mspaint or whatever and draw a nice line of where exactly i should cut( like how close or far from the seat and other lil dodads down there) i would greatly appreciate it

I'm at work right now, but I'll show you where I cut when i get home, It'll be around 11 p.m. eastern. and for those doing this your are gonna want to unbolt the armrest storage part before you cut so you can salvage that piece and make it easier on your saw. Also if there is anyone in the tampa area who wants to do this but doesnt have the tools, I do and would be glad to help.
