Hoods & Trim

A variety of hoods are available. The fitting price varies depending on the type of material chosen, and the general condition of the fittings, header rail etc. Prices are for standard black hoods, other colours are available on request. Our hoods are the correct fitting, high quality type; not to be confused with inferior quality hoods. Please scroll down the page for seats and personalisation.

New long hood catches can make the hood easier to close

If the only problem with your hood is a fogged rear window you may not need to replace it - we can usually treat the windows so you can see what's disappearing behind you again!

Retrimmed MGB GT
Retrimmed MGB GT


Various styles of seat were fitted to MGs over the years, and even if the covers haven't faded or worn the foams and webbings tend to collapse giving that "trying to see over the dashboard" driving position.

Fortunately all of the parts are available to rebuild them to as good or better than new. All but the late rubber bumper pattern covers are available. Even these later seats can be rebuilt re-using the original covers or fitting a different type such as leather.

The prices are as follows:

Labour: front seat £95 each
  rear seat £150 (MGBGT)

Parts which may be required:

Covers from £150.00 per pair of front seats
Foams (2 per seat) £20.00 each
Webbings (1 per seat) £12.00 each

This gives a typical rebuild price of around £500 incl. for a pair of front seats. Seats can be rebuilt individually - the drivers seat obviously wears more, but the new covers are only available in pairs. For leather the typical price is £700 incl.

Notes: VAT to be added to all prices. Prices correct @ 15/10/2010. MGOC/MGCC discount included. Prices assume frames etc are in serviceable condition - additional work will be advised
