Mushroom velour seat material

When my trimmer tried to find velour for my GTC, he drew a blank. Apparently it hasnt been made for years. I ended up going down the leather route. Have you tried
Reliant Parts World to see if they have any seat covers stashed away?

Ss1 seat upgrade

I fitted MGB GT seats to Barbaras SS1 and as Manny says you just need to "modify " them with an angle grinder. I adapted them to fit the existing runners so if she wants to swap back in the future there is minimal work to be done.

GTC partition stud

Yes I still have the spring clips in place. I can easily adapt them to take a stud and wing nut. Never thought about toe-rags getting into the boot via the back seat. Makes you wonder how they knew about it.

GTC partition stud

Perhaps studding would be the better option.

GTC partition stud

Anyone have the 2 partition securing studs going spare ? The car never had them when I bought it and Ive tried one or two other options (zeus fastners) but nothing fits right.

The thread is not 1/8 BSP, it is M10 x 1.

Maybe on your car, but M10 wouldnt fit on mine. Thus fitted 1/8 bsp (28 tpi). Works a treat.

The thread on mine was 1/8 BSP. I blanked it off with a plug. Looking at your photo it looks bigger. Try 1/4 BSP. Dont have a better picture but you can just see it

NEC CLASSIC CAR SHOW 8-10 NOVEMBER 2019

It was great to have a good chat with you Mike and many others who stopped to look at the cars. Yes Barbaras paintwork was looking tired as we had taken our eye off the ball trying to get the GTC finished. It should have been on the stand originally, but had to pull out and the SS1 was a late substi...

GTC hood suppliers?

I used Don Hood for both the GTC and the SS1. Quality is good compared to some hoods Ive seen . I fitted them myself, but you need a warm day in summer for ease of stretching them or some form of heating in a garage. Its a job you need to do when you are in the mood and just take your time.

Sabre or Ashley

Also looks like a Gilbern inthe background. I wonder what the faded yellow car next to it is. Just noticed a stag and the XJC in the second row.
