Dale and Dick,
I'm not 100% sure, but I had heard the Mazda MX-5 (or Miata) seats almost
bolt straight in and if you get the Jap import seats, they have speakers in
the head rests (I'm sure every car needs that!!). I have seen one TR6 with
this conversion done a couple of years ago and they looked pretty good
(certainly not out of place).
Perhaps someone has done this conversion and could enlighten us futher....
