I can only speak to the BT7 but the concepts should be similar. My driving
schedule will take me through rain this summer so I have restored an old set
for a rainy day. First place them in a stowage bag. One of the Healey
ladies made one from three black terry cloth towels sewn together. A
replica from Moss or the usual suspects would be the more pricey but
original option. The most obvious danger for damage is the spare hub so
perhaps place a pad atop that (I use vintage coveralls :-). I also have a
soft sided tool bag that always occupies the area right of the spare. This
makes the "shelf" height equal. My problem is when I carry the side
curtains I have precious little space for anything else. I only carry them
when rain is forecast so they mostly stay in the garage. Perhaps you may
come up with a clever solution like a simple bracket of sorts.
Alternatively consider a lovely brunette (a redhead in your case) in a
support vehicle carrying loads of spares, your side curtains and ale.
Note: these are more attractive than functional and are more practical in
theory than practice. Oh this goes for the side curtains as well (grin).
Hope this helps. Happy Friday.

Subject: sidescreen stowage
Perhaps I should have phrased my original question a bit more accurately,
I will try again,
What is the best position / method of stowing the sidescreens in the boot of
a BN4, to avoid them moving / rattling etc, and also to avoid damaging them.
