Seats and Interior Updates

I'm looking for a new seat for the Miata (Drivers only at this time) and wondering if anyone else has any good things to look for. The number one aspect is to maintain the sliding feature so that Jana and anyone else can continue to drive the car.

I'm also looking at weight, shedding some lbs between sotck and aftermarket is a driving factor.

Links, things to watch for, and any other info to help get this process started would be pure sweetness.

it's possible I'd like consider seeing if there is an alternative to the stock carpet that may save a little weight, yet not end up just looking at floorboards.

Oh yeah, I'm being very mindful of what I need to stay in STR. My end plan is to run STR for a year or two and see how it goes. For STR I have to follow this:

The driver and front passenger seats may be replaced, with the following
restrictions: The seating surface must be fully upholstered.
The top of the seat, or an attached headrest, may not be below the
center of the driver’s head. The seat, including mounting hardware,
must weigh at least 25 pounds and must be attached using the OE
body mounting holes/studs. Additional mounting points may be added.

I have an extra set of seats from the speed3 that I'm still trying to decide whether or not to reupholster with brown leather, might be a chance they would directly up…

I know that dynamat makews a large amount of replacement items, even for carpet.

I've had a lot of experience putting the stuff in and everyone loves it, however I don't know how much weight you'll saveby replacing the carpet.

You won't save squat replacing carpet with dynamat, you'll only make it heavier. Best bet is to pull the carpet tub, and take out all the sound deadening on the floor.

they have multiple different types of materials made by dynamat. You could use dynaliner, it's a thin rubber foam it's really meant for a headliner, but if it isn't a really abused daily driver it should be ok.
