Hi All

I am replacing the interior on a 1967 TR4a. It is a Roadster Factory kit for both panels and carpets.

The interior was partially out when i got the car...so no reverse engineering memory, unfortunately.

The question has to do with the base of the B pillar at the floor. The kit provides a triangular piece of fiberboard which is to be covered in vinyl and adhered to the triangular portion at the base of the B pillar.

I have Googled this to death and it looks like the TR4 and TR6 are slightly different than the TR4a. Can't make sense of it.

And does the material overlap and cover the outer triangular surface which faces the door gap?

If anyone has clear photos or description of how this goes together it would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance.

John

None of the painted door frame will show from the inside when you are done. The carpet with sewn vinyl wrapped over the sill and are then covered with the furflex. The triangle gets vinyl glued on, wrap the bottom and rear edge. The loose edge wraps over the sill and again is hidden by the furflex. The triangle backer is glued to the painted frame. The vertical piece of vinyl wraps the door frame sill as well and is hidden by the furflex.

Would it be possible for you to take a picture of the condition?

Best,

John

Note how all painted interior bodywork s covered and trim. This is a TR6 but illustrates the triangle piece and how it finishes that area.

That matching burl window sill trim is exceptional!! How did you manage that?

If it's a vinyl wrap, contact Gatorwraps. They wrap all kinds of crazy things and lettering decals. You might also want to check Gatorprints.
