    Need Hardware for the 'Rear Seat Delete' Luggage Compartment

    Fellow enthusiasts,

    i am trying to find authentic hardware for the 'rear seat delete' luggage compartment. i found an original luggage compartment and had it re-upholstered, but the hardware for the doors was lost. Each door had two hinges and a knob/closure (which i believe was magnetic).

    does anyone have a suggestion of where i can find that hardware?

    thanks to all of you, in advance.

    For the reproductions my friends made, they sourced it all from marine hardware suppliers. I would think those or RV suppliers would be the best. I know they couldn't find exact knob/closure, so they went with a small pushbutton type as I recall.

    The finished image is courtesy Rob Abbott, he had that work done by Dave at TRE.

    Erik, you are one of our foremost scholars. thank you for sharing that information.

    However, in no way to diminish Erik's contribution, a series of screwed up events related to house chores (and getting a garden ready), i was rooting for proper sized deck screws and found the bag with the hinges, knobs and other hardware.

    i personally consider this revelation to be an act of God, himself, but i also appreciate the Early S Community and its resources.

    this is a good day that might even warrant bringing out the old scotch.
