    Miata Seats in a MGB?

    Spotted a nice pair of Mazda Miata seats at the local wrecking yard, wonder if anyone out there has put them into a MGB and how they fit/look? Any comments? Should I get them while I can, $60 for the pair If I act quick.

    Yes...a fairly easy conversion. Ditto with Fiero seats.

    I was just curious. I know the Miata is getting bigger with each version. I assume the seats are wider also. I donít think I have seen anyone use the surf board seats from a version 2 in this type of conversion.

    Also thinner, later seats are not as comfortable as the originals. Bob

    Got these out of a 92 Miata for $30 for the pair, now just have to figure which MGB I want to put them in. Hey, they even have a place in the headrest for speakers (someone grabbed them already. But I got the seats!

    You got a steal.

    Go to Best Buy (etc) to get speakers....3-1/2" maximum diameter.

    I'll bet the wiring to the speakers is still intact.
