    Seat Cover Question

    Those of you that ordered seat covers for your TR4, did your kits come with extra pieces of vinyl to cover the frame fronts, sides and the back of the tilting seat? I ordered a Moss leather seat kit back in 2016 and am just putting them together however I have no spare vinyl to wrap around my bases. Calling Moss they say they don't include them in the kits. Why would that be when the TR4 seats come from the factory that way. Just curious where people bought theirs and who got those pieces? Thanks

    I got the Jonathan Skinner kit for my TR3A and it came with strips for the seat pan.

    My 3A kit from Moss had them too.

    Geez...I've called Moss twice and BOTH people I spoke to (John went home for the day) said it doesn't show in the kits. I don't think it's one of those things that shows in images. They want to send me a yard of material, but it's 56x36 and that's not long enough to completely wrap around the tilting seat pan. Hmmmmm

    My Moss kit came with them. But the piece around the tilting seat base has two seams (both near the pivot) so nothing is long enough to wrap all the way 'round.

    I am planning on wrapping the short piece around the back and the long piece around the front with overlaps around the piviot point.

    So then technically it would be 3 pieces in the kit. Two for the tilting seat and one for the fixed seat. I guess I'll see what they charge me for a yard of vinyl. Should be free...but...
