[TR] Triumphs Digest, Vol 7, Issue 198

I installed 1997 miata seats last year. Up to then I had my original leather
1966 TR4A seats. The drivers side developed a tiny full thickness tear and was
going to get worse fast.  Also those seats gave me no upper back support.  The
top of the seat ends below my shoulder blades. Not at all comfortable for more
than 45 minutes

The miata seats are quite firm, but fit me well. I really appreciate the upper
back support!

The modification is easily reversed on about 1 hr or less.

I will be installing the Goodparts CV axles, also totally reversible, but a
nice functional upgrade
