Could I have a Griff set please?
Please can you post a photo of your door end cap on the car...There's a bit of confusion on Griffs and the possibility they differ on different ages of car.... Thanks

I received my pair of T350 ‘B pillar’ ‘muckets’ from Keith today.
He’s a nice bloke, a pleasure to deal with and very helpful.

On inspection, they’re very well made and certainly more robust than what’s currently on my TVR.
Compared to an old spare ‘genuine TVR’ one I have, they are more substantial and don’t flex as much.

The parts aren’t baby bottom smooth, they might require a light sandpaper on an edge or two with 800 grit, but I’m very happy with them.

A real credit to Keith for taking on making these items, which are very hard to come by now.
I’ve been looking for months since both my ‘B pillar’ door finishers ripped at the top.

It’s dedicated owners and enthusiasts like him, that help to ensure we as fellow owners can sort out the wee bits and bobs on our pride and joys.

Thanks again Keith, keep up the good work, and see if you can figure out making anything else that’s now unobtanium…..!

Do you need / want a C pillar cap for a Tamora to scan and print? I have lost one but still have the passenger side.

+1 to all of the above.

I ordered a pair of B pillar caps from Keith and they arrived a couple of days later. Initial impressions are very good - the caps are a lot stiffer than the originals and certainly look like they are made to last.

I do plan on giving them a light sanding to remove some very slight surface texturing, but I'd have no issues fitting them as they are.
Thanks again, Keith - your efforts are much appreciated beer

Thanks for those that have supported my little project... unfortunately Dom @ Power Performance hasn't returned my calls, because I wanted him to be my sole supplier. Now I've perfected my MK3 Sag/T350/Tamora door cap (Thanks especially to those that have paid, less said about those that haven't frown ) . Today I've sent out some MK2's (in TPE) but my latest are really good , so good , I've increased my price to £50 a pair (and that's a steal !!!) . My scanner arrived today, I've yet to learn how to use it smile ..... In all I've invested nearly £2,000 on producing these parts for TVR owners , but i think it will be worth it ... and I won't become a millionaire ... unless I win Euromillions smile

Sorry about the low tech question but am I correct, A pillar is windscreen end and B is door lock end ?

If so, I need a pair of B end for my Tuscan Convertible.

Yes, correct.. I need to make a pair , I'll PM you when I've got them ready

Out of interest , was that after the respray ? Because I thought they would need removing on a respray and that could damage them or is it just wear and tear .... Mine are more robust than the originals with a little less flex , and probably not as shinny as the convertible originals (well the ones on my car anyway smile )

Hi Glow Worm,
My respray was back 2015. I don't know if they removed them but I thinks so.
She was stripped to the bone and I had was re-trimmed at the same time.

The one on the drivers side disappeared a couple of years ago ???
The passengers side isn't as tall as it used to be.
Not worried at all about the surface finish of the rubber. thumbup

Have you thought about making some of the rubber wedges that the Sagaris and some T350s have to push the drivers window glass onto the seal?
I don't have this ,and would like one/ a pair?
They fit up in the recess ,in the roof ,above the window.

KD88 I assume you have cancelled your request, since I've not received a response to my reply to your PM (or your e-mail address for PM is incorrect).
