    I dropped the floor in my car, did it myself about 6 years ago. I gained about 4 inches, could have gained more but I wanted to keep a proper rail and a comfy seat. Will see if I have any pics

    I had an acquaintance come by this past weekend to try sitting in the Miata with the dropped floor pan and race seat. He has 36 inch inseam and is around 6'3". He fit with several inches of headroom on the stock hardtop. I'm still willing to get/take pictures if you want them, Slampen.

    Sorry for the crappy photos. I'm NOT a photographer.

    The new dropped floor is low. It extends lower than the pinch weld.


    Floor-to-cage distance is right around 8 inches, whereas floor-to-cage distance on the stock side is about 6.5 inches. (I know it's hard to see that, parallax is a bitch).

    Transmission tunnel height at the rear bulkhead is about 10 inches on the stock side, 12 inches on the dropped side:

    VS


    Distance from the back of the seatbase to the stock hardtop is about 40 inches:
