Hi,
Was looking at the seats from my '65 Mk1 SDL project. I haven't seen this kind of riveted hinge before on any mk1 or 2 I have ever owned. Are they rare or unusual?

They are an early version of the "standard" hinge. they are totally interchangeable with the bolted type though.

One can look at it as the middle of three types, but be careful trying to put a change date on the three. This "middle" one was used much longer in at least one country (South Africa) than in England.
