Our 1949 MG YT interior  remake is almost complete, here is the first images of the seats and door cards. We have re-manufactured the entire interior set up using the original components where possible but now with the new colour combination.

As you can see, the leather is yet to be tightened in places but certainly within the next few days we’ll have the full interior complete and ready to fit.

We have re-made the door card templates as these are almost impossible to find.

The styling remains the same as the original although we have introduced a couple of alterations to them to ensure they last longer than the originals would ever have been able to. The pockets are now slightly cushioned and the pocket fixing are much tighter than the originals were.

Keeping to the original is always our aim (unless instructed otherwise) but as technologies change it is certainly worthwhile assessing the situation in order to get the best results…and this is a great example of a little extra effort going a long way.
