I would be surprised if they didn't work as the MX5 seats are one of the narrowest around. Sadly the only real way to know is to try them....not that easy if you don't have one to try :-).

Got some MX-5 seats finally.
I'll be picking them up in Brisbane in a couple of weeks.
Anyone know where I can the cool adapter mounts that the guys were mentioning before.

Hey Pud, thanks for that.
Collin is taking way longer that I could have imagined.

I should have just bought another beetle and started again.

I'm starting to buy engine parts next week so that's exciting.

Fighting with the fuel tank this week.

Do you know who had those MX5 seat adapters?

Paul has them, but he is in the USA at the moment I think. Ben from Manx Australia should know more but I have lost his contact details.
