MGA Seats Rebuild Tech Day
March 20, 2005 - Naperville, Illinois

A dozen very enthusiastic members had hands on to finish complete rebuild of two sets of MGA roadster seats (see cover photo). There was also a start on a third set which was completed a few days later. There was one very original (and very tatty) set for reference to see how the materials are arranged inside. The covers were leather and vinyl with original type stuffing of horse hair and felt with foam rubber cushions (and a short review of some alternate materials). We also made templates of the bottom cushion base board construction (for those who like to make their own). A dozen more people are now qualified ro rebuild MGA seats
