Are you using the 'diaphragm's or 'lawn chair'  seat bottom supports.
The diaphragm seat bottom foam support will easily keep the seat
sitting an inch or two higher than the 'lawn chair' straps config.

I have a '76 MG B. I'm 6' tall. This means that I look straight through the
top frame of the windscreen. I actually have lousy visibility in a car with
no roof! I've tried reclining the seat, slouching in the seat, peering over
the top. None work so I am going to have to either raise the top of the
windscreen (err, perhaps not) or drop my seat. The seat is not over stuffed,
so I am looking at lowering the seat in the car. Has anyone done this? Does
anyone have any thoughts on how it can be done? Do those silly wooden slats
under the seat rails do anything - if not, is removing them a sensible
option (gee, that'd gain me a whole quarter inch)?

'76 B type - the ones with the sexy black bumpers
