I have a luggage rack on the back of my TR6 and looking for dimensions so I can have 2 made. If there is a supplier of pre made ones that would be great. Any help appreciated. Summer is coming and I am ready to get rid of the snow and get rolling.

The length of the straps depends on the dimensions of the suitcase.

Is that an OEM luggage rack. Id like to get one for my 72 and I see a lot of styles.

I belive the luggage racks were dealer fitted, like rear view mirrors, so you will see several styles fitted to our cars

Or after market purchases from places like MG Mitten and Villem B. Hahn back in the day.

I would imagine any leather shop that makes belts could make you a set and put holes in it like a belt that could be adjusted. If you can't find one advertised, I'd imagine there might be at one at the next craft show or art show in your area.

I'm facing this as well. My plan is to buy leather belting on Amazon, along with the necessary buckles, etc., and take the lot to my local shoe repair guy. Haven't decided whether to make a pair of super-long straps, or make each strap into a long end and a shorter one with the buckle. Have to search the web for some examples...
