Wedge List / Re: Max height of seats for Wedge. Miata converison?
« Last post by Anthony Rhodes on November 25, 2017, 08:39:25 AM »
I have not used the Miata seats in my TR7. But I do have them in my TR4A.

They are from a  '97 and very comfortable.   I did not measure their height

when I installed them but the height seems just right for me.



And I have the TR7 headrests adjusted more or less to the same level for head

support so I think the height is within the "normal" range of a TR7 headrests

position.



I can't comment on the mounting rails.  But I would expect you could use the

Miata rails with custom adapter plates.

I did the version of the foamectory where you remove the portion that goes

down into the seat pan.  It may have helped a little.  I didnbt carve up the

top of the foam, so it still looks nice.

The miata folks also do a foamectomy to reduce the seat height. Haven't done

mine yet but thinking about all the options. I have a set of M Edition seats

from a 1995 miata which is the only year that had separate headrests

Hi Chris,



What measurement are you asking about?



The Miata seats will sit you a bit higher, especially if your originals are

broken down.  Ibm 6 ft, and I donbt find it a problem, though if you are

first at the signal you do have to duck down a little more to see the light.



I used the runners from the Miata seats, and used some flat steel stock that

bolts to the original seat mounts and then bolts to the runners.  You will

also have to make up a bracket to mount the seatbelts, as they mount to the

wedge seats, but in the Miata they mount to the car.



Ibll send you a few pictures.

Hi, I'm thinking about doing something with my TR8 seats. I have been looking

at Miata seats and I know a lot of you have used them. I think the Mazda seats

are 4-5 inches taller than the original Triumph seat.B  I think my current

seats are 33 inches tall. Has this proved to be a problem?B  Which set of

runners have you used? Triumph or Mazda? thanks for any input!B Chris

Wedge List / converted files for decals

Bill:



I have been using Adobe Illustrator since about version 1.1. The club logo was

created in Adobe Illustrator and the newsletter in InDesign. I just looked and

found this:

> Illustrator will not open AutoCAD files saved in a version later than

AutoCAD 2007. AutoCAD files include both DXF and DWG formats.

It's very possible the .dwg files can be opened or converted Illustrator.

We currently have several Triumph logos, wreath and 3.5 Liter included, on

file. I added to my list this week a TR8 logo in the strobed fade. We use

.ai or .eps files for vinyl cutting.

Herb,



I had stencils cut for the "Canadian" stripes and the V8 motif on the

bonnet, but I used reproduction decals for all the standard TR8 decals.



Absolutely the .dwg files can be used to make decals or stencils.



Cheers

Bill
