    Pages from Porter Spridget Restoration Manual on Seat Recovering, You Tube Videos

    I of course can't find my Porter Book on Spridget Restoration. Anyone got a copy who can scan the few pages on SeatCover reinstall as a .pdf and e-mail them to me? As I recall there are some good tips in that book and it's around here somewhere but where right now. Or if there are any good video's on Seat Cover Install.

    Issue Solved. Thanks to David Doan I got a copy of the 11 pages with pictures on recovering BE Seats. If you need a copy please let me know.

    George,

    Porter Book is a Spridget Restoration Guider. Yellow Cover. Lots of useful restoration and How To Tips

    Restoration Manual Sprite/ Midget Lindsay Porter


    https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/mg-mid...&idiq=33356469

    Here's a used copy for $26.95 . For example 10 really detailed pages and pictures and step by step on redoing BE Seats.

    More useful than Horler if you need to know how to fix things.
