I had the seats installed in a 63 TR4.  There was no issue with the soft
top frame and the seat to steering wheel clearance were not an issue.  Not
having seen any other Miata seats or how they fit I can't say whether the
fit was to tight or the same.

The 2000 Miata seat tracks are definitely different than the earlier years
and required more modifications.  The biggest issue was the width.  The
2000 and I assume later tracks had an additional bracket on the side that I
had to cut off using a cut-off wheel in a hand grinder.  Not difficult at
all.  Once those were off the mods to the tracks as detailed on your
website were pretty much spot on.
