Miata Playseat modification

This is a quick walkthrough of rebuilding my PlaySeat Evolution to replace the standard included seat with a passenger seat from a 94 Mazda Miata. 

I had quite a few reasons I wanted to give this a try. For starters, the standard seat that is included with this rig kind of sucks. It doesn’t have a lot of padding, and even with the included sliders, I never could get it quite as comfortable as I wanted it to be. Plus I replaced the seats in my Miata, and this one was in pretty good condition so I didn’t want to trash it.

One of the biggest advantages the Miata seat added, besides comfort, was it’s head rest mounted speakers. I figured tying these into my ancient Logitech 5.1 surround system to act as rear speakers would be an excellent idea, and it was. 

All done!

The picture is a little old, but this is the completed product. I have since updated to a Fanatec wheel, shift and pedals.

Present day, it looks like this!
