Does anyone know how to purchase or replace the broken upper, center and lower wire Squabs for the 1970 TR6 seats? I cant find a reseller online anywhere to buy them.. Here are some photos to help get an idea of what is broken.

I found a member on another forum who had the same issue. He has guided me on how to make them myself and which wires are required (Music Wire 1/8" x 36 inches). I will make them myself since no one sells the parts for the original TR6 seats.

I fabricated them myself out of appropriately sized wire stock too. I am sure piano wire would be better but think I used re-purposed coat hangers. Not perfect but it has held up fine for a few years.

I was able to make them pretty easily after the first one. it took about 5 minutes per item to ensure they were the correct size for the bolsters. I purchased a wire bender from Amazon and it made a difference to easliy bend the wire.
