Which cushions? and what type of interior?

We bought 6m for our '60 Devon and have probably 1.5m (ish) left over. Always handy to get a bit more than you need in case you need to make any future repairs or have a sudden yearning for matching scatter cushions....! :D

Ooops, forgot to mention, that 6m was just for the Devon cushions, so does not include the front bench seat.

Its's a 3/4 rock and roll bed, so there are the 2 cushions for the seat itself, then the cushion that goes in the rear luggage area over the engine.

Getting there Murray - also got a little brake issue to sort, but need to get it rolling and off to the local garage for a small bit of re-welding on the MC bracket. It was put on wonky (not by Matt Gill !) and therefore the pushrod doesn't go into the MC at the correct angle.
