Retrofitting my plus 2 S130

Good to see you've got early seats - six small dial dash mind - needs to be a four dial dash for the authentic early look!
Re your spot light recesses. I don't think anyone does a specific repair panel - you could try Boss Motors in Norfolk. But it wouldn't be too hard to knock up your own panels in grp anyway.

Thanks Matt, the seats are actually the original s2 seats from my... well you can probably guess :lol:
I intend to put the interior of the s130 in it as the seats move and will hopefully provide me with some extra height (as the early seats are too raked and its difficult to see out). I never liked the original interior though as they are a bit too padded so I intend to make mine a bit less Amsterdam Cat-house and a bit more Bentley GT 8) .
Should be a great car!
Best regards, Peter
