    Your best best is with either a breaker (used parts reseller like Alex @ Scatch N Sniff Parts), or a spec Miata racer building a car. I don't know your location.

    Tension. They give a little, but think of a stronger strap than a webbed lawn chair.

    Except this foamectomy would be achieve a flat bottom seat, lower the seat physically through other methods. This does not change the resting position of the driver IN the seat.

    Bryan, I was estimating that if the large 'blister' on the bottom of the pan was cut off and replaced with webbing, it would allow more room to lower the seat. The seat foam would also be similarly...

    My first r-lip took a beating where it would contact curbing at the track on the sides. It had worn down pretty thin. The newt one I bought was OEM and was made in Canada (on the box), primered as...
