I also ditched the soft top.

The only problem I ran into was that the leather seats had built in seat belt connectors, so I had to take them out of my other miata as well as the bolt.

Sorry for the crappy pics, but it was a camera phone

No before pics of a faded seat or anything of the sort you might as well have taken a pic of my car or any other car with no softtop and a cloth upholstered seat. So the jist of this is I dunno where you where trying to take us with your pics or your account of moving the seatbelt bolt. But somehow i am stuck in a holding patern with no runway in sight.

Dude, I was just letting people know how it looks with black seats. That was the reason I started this thread, to know whether or not it will look good and I finished the thread with the outcome.

You didn't feel like you were sliding around inside that car because instead you felt that you were being squeezed in a vise and had a large anvil placed upon your genitals, which was not a bad thing because the steering felt like the helm of the HMS Marshal Soult and the shifter was apparently connected to the transmission by means of a depleted uranium rod 36" in diameter and containing forty-two helm joints. It was not a comfortable car to drive.

That gave me a good laugh! Very true too, I got to sit in a old ferrari and I couldent even imangine driving it!
