    Another GRP manufacturer - possibly the one Mike was referring to - is Smith & Deakin.

    Richard,
    I'd first check that you've got the seat fully back on the runners, the back rest would be hard up against the heel(?) board. Put the seat back upright and push the base as far back as you can, there shouldn't be much space behind seat base then.

    The driver's seat particularly, because it always used, can have its frame bent/twisted/distorted a little from use which can be e...

    William - The base is hard but I don't seem to have any problem with scratching the paintwork.

    I may have 'grown' a little wider since my youth, but my legs have'nt altered any, and I'm only 5'-10". It seemed ...

    Recently got a new job that means a fair bit of driving and the MGTF is no longer practical. I'm gutted but having to sell it - this car puts a massive smile on my face when I drive it!
