TR6 Floor pan to frame mount question/Miata seats

Hi all!
I'm in the process of putting some Miata seats in my TR6 to replace my nearly destroyed originals. I'm using Rick Patton's conversion brackets. I'm encountering a snag in that I think the PO may have put a metal plate on the floor pan to reinforce the spot where the pan mounts to the frame underneath. This is under the driver's seat between the right rear chair mount screw and the transmission tunnel. Is this a PO ad on, or is there really a metal plate that's supposed to be there? Unfortunately, this plate seems to keep the miata bracket from sitting flush.
Sorry for the picture quality, I was doing this in the dark and already had the carpet pinned down by the Miata bracket.

Edit: I think I may have found the answer to my own question on Bob Danielson's page. That plate is supposed to be there, but gets moved slightly to accomodate. Also, looks like I'll have to trim out a little bit of my padding under the carpet. Still, if anyone has any experienced suggestions on this whole conversion, I'm always open to advice. Thanks.

Got it done easy enough. The Patton kit really made it easy. I paid $250 for a set of near perfect black miata seats (leather?) and about $180 for the mounting brackets. I don't think I could even begin to buy repair parts for my original seats for that. I do like the look and fit of the originals, but mine were way too hammered and had been in bad shape since I bought the car. This is a huge improvement to my driving comfort. I sit a bit higher, which is particularly noticeable with the hard top on, but I'm sure it will be fantastic with the top off!
