Just wondering, on my Sprite Mk2 seats (the Bugeye style of seat), what would
cause damage to the very lower lip of the backrest? It's the lip that the "D"
clips attach to to secure the cover. Kind of bent up on one side, I
straightened it with a pliers. Also the 3 tabs on the rear of the lower (main)
frame were bent downwards.
I wonder if this is a weak area and "they all do that", or does it require a
bit of abuse to make this happen (I can envision someone sitting on the top of
the backrest, or a REALLY big guy leaning hard against the backrest, stuff
like that).
Took the old original MK1 Midget covers off, cushion was dated 18OCT1961, kind
of neat to notice this stuff.
