Targa 27 driver bench wanted

Post by jvischer » Tue Jul 03, 2018 6:13 am

Hallo,
A previous owner removed the nice and clever designed driver bench and installed 2 wooden benches.
If anybody here could provide me with a hint where to get one that would be great.
Best regards from lake Constanz

Hi Juergen, I'd say you have virtually no chance of sourcing an original seat. The only realistic option you have is to make one yourself out of GRP or whatever the original was made from. Perhaps someone here can help with photos / measurements?

Hi, I am not sure if this helps but I have just had my Targa 27 external cushions re-uphostered. The Bench Seat on mine was made out of 12mm ply – angled to shape, glued, screwed and fibre glassed on the seams. The clever bit was the cushions also on 12 mm ply with the foam shaped to fit. The problem maybe obtaining the 2 stainless bucket “L” brackets and the 2 stainless hinges with pins.
