"Then came Keith Maddock as a conciliator: "I have installed a set of seats from a Mazda Miata. They look very nice in the car, and do not look obviously non-stock. Installation was simple. I bolted the Z tracks to the Miata seats and then bolted right into the Z. Each Z track needed one hole drilled in them to match the bolt hole pattern of the Miata seat. The seats are nice and comfortable - I have made two 2500 mile trips in them and I never felt sore from the seats.... Plus, a bonus of Miata seats is that they have two speakers in each seat headrest... "
that is all i've seen on it. the entire article is at
It depends on what kind of miata seats i suppose
The older ones with the speakers in the headrest are probably as easy as the guy in the last message reported. I installed some blue suede and black buck leather ones in my car and it was rather tricky. they were out of a 1999 model but they look great. They looked so good that i customized the interior to match them. I'll watch for your response and if you need advice on the later model seats I'll try to help
Thanks for the responses, but the Miata seats I am installing are from a 1990 and are cloth. One post said that he just replaced the Miata brackets with the Z-brackets with some new holes. But mine isn't that easy. So I'm thinking about cutting the cross-member in the interior and use the Miata brackets instead. I would appreciate any other suggestions without hacking up the cross member or anything else in my 280Z. Thanks
