Default 250 swb seats and interior

Have been looking longingly at the DNA 2fifty interiors, they really are magnificent, trying to come up with something similar but on a budget.

I found these seat covers on Ebay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MGB-ROADST...8ecWGUP_40LrhQ

For an MGB, would want the reeling style seats as the fixed versions are too uncomfortable. A pair of seats that need to be recovered can be had for around 60. The seat covers above are retro but with a slight modern twist with the raised seat bolster. You can have them in the colour of your choice and with piping and you can specify no headrest holes.

I do like the DNA dash but was thinking of the main instrument dial set up the Chris showed in his black 250swb (similar to Mr Toad's), coupled with the DNA centre dial section and a glove box.
I would personally like to keep the centre console so that I could keep my air con and fresh air vents. Just smooth out the existing top of the dash.
I would also like to keep the door panels, I hate driving a car that has no provision for an armrest.

Come you photoshop experts

I don't think they like to sell to people that haven't bought kits

Check out the end of the Stirling Moss replica on the Nubodi web site. The dash really looks the part and so much better than the stock Z3 offering. They promote customer built Tribute cars so I can only think they would be happy for you to buy a dash panel.
