Hi John the security door plates have arrived thank you .
I believe the seat size changed in 1973/4 to allow taller drivers a little more leg room making for a more comfortable drive.
Again thanks for the plates.
I purchased the black covers for the headrest adjusters from Hennalore here on this forum (contact Montigirl, I think; she still pops in from time to time). They were stamped out of metal and painted black. They worked very well and are not likely to break! I believe the ones in the photograph were made by Giorgio Penatti in Italy -they may or may not be available still...
I just measure it: mine is 25cm.
is that correct the 2 different sizes?
anyone know why there is a difference?
The difference between standard modell and last modell is a chamfer of 20 degrees of the leading edge reducing the bucket from 25 to 20 cm allowing the front seats to be moved further back.
