Hey Listers:

I just picked up a TR7 coupe that I'm going to part out.  Good Rover 5
speed, some nice rims, air horns and good seats.

Has anyone ever tried to put TR7 seats in a Spitfire?  They look a tad
oversize, but are in really nice shape, much better than what I currently
have in my '78 Spit.

BTW, I have installed Miata seats in my '67 GT and they were almost a
direct bolt-in!  The radio speakers in the headrest would be totally
awesome in a roadster!  The seats are very supportive & comfortable!
