their car hobby . Side curtain storage bags and flannel seat covers for
those hot sweaty days are a great project for a wife that sews. And it
gives them a little satisfaction knowing that they added something to the
project. My wife has made a couple of side curtain bags out of new, large
bath towels that are very easy on the plastic windows.
Also seat covers to protect the leather seats on those hot days work very
well and can be thrown into the wash for clean up. A little elastic around
the lower seat cover and a slip over cover with tie downs works great for
the back of the seat.
As for where to store the windows for convenience, after packing the
rear seat area
can't you slip them behind the front seats , standing up on their sides.
This leaves your trunk open for your other things. And of course the
tonneau is used as a partial cover for the rest of the paraphernalia in the
This is how MGAs are set up and it has worked well for us for years.
