[Healeys] miata seats

I welded some angle iron to the front of the seat frame and drilled some 
additional holes to move the frame back on the rails (I'm 6'9").  You 
ought to be able to do the same, but on the back of the frame.  Might 
also weld a support block on the bottom side of the front of the fame. 
You would have to unbolt/move/bolt the frame from the rails when 
switching drivers.

It looks like it would be a bit of work to lengthen the rails.  Not sure 
that you could get away lengthening just the lower rail.
