Wilmot Breeden (still trading as WBH - Weston Body Hardware) did all the door and ignition locks, keys, handles, latches and striker plates. They also did fuel caps.

J Fray (Joseph Fray Ltd) did the metal badges, and I think some of the metal surrounds for the plastic badges.

Seat diaphragms made by Vitafoam in Middleton, North Manchester, a company founded by my mate Norman's dad and though under different ownership in recent years and consisting of various companies is still going strong today. Not sure if they made the foam seat cushions? They did also make aftermarket sound proofing kits...

11 guineas for a sound deadening kit!

Jeebus! That was expensive.

Marleyfoam at Theale for loads of foam filled things, most noticeable being the padded dash-rail of the Mk2's and the like. Also the big black rubber bumpers for MGB';s

Great photo that odd Dave, of the jig used to get the downpipe angles right. Especially if you're replacing the boottom section as was someone on the forum a couple of months ago. And simple to replicate from a couple of pieces of wood for a one-off one way trip.

I might get the wife to knock one up for me.

Is that politically correct? I'm getting wary after my equality training :(

Yes well your photo could also be seen as sexist as it shows a downtrodden woman (well that's no certainty any more either!) being poorly paid to do menial work. On the other hand she's obviously empowered and sticking it to the boys. Depends who's skewed perspective it's viewed from!?? :roll: Equality training going well? :lol:
