Changing seats in an SE4

Sorry Jerry could’nt say what model MX5 they come from, both have radio speakers in the headrest, and are the tombstone type Brian mentions.I’d suggest cruising the auction sites and ask sellers to measure,cheers Peter

Changing seats in an SE4

Hi Jerry, measured them, at the seat back they are approx 40 cm, and at the front of the bolster they are 48 cm,but this is fairly soft and they will compress back to 40cms.I’d recommend them, we also have them in a MGBGT we drove 6000 miles to Athens and back in comfort,regards Peter

As an aside, the windscreen fitter asked if it was possible to remove the dash top to facilitate the refit, is this normal practice, and if so, how do you remove the dash top, thanks Peter

Yes, I really did’nt like the WIL 2553 plate on a 65 car, better still when booking into a posh campsite with our caravan and Disco the manager said to my wife “Wills in the car”, and she said “no that’s Peter” and the Coupe matches the plate,cheers Peter
