Good point Tony........ the majority of mods/upgrades are totally 
reversible. Everything I've done to my car could be reversed in a few days 
as I've saved the tranny, diff, axles, seats etc. All the old stock parts 
are stored in the basement and/or shed. ....... but spend a week driving my 
car and you wouldn't reverse anything. Pop the hood and it looks like a TR6, 
rides like a TR6, sounds like a TR6 and handles like one too...

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 
going to get worse fast.  Also those seats gave me no upper back support. 
top of the seat ends below my shoulder blades. Not at all comfortable for 
than 45 minutes

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