& It looked so good in the first pic!
I thought you had gone mad when you sold the Black Tulip, at least we know this will end up as good as that one.
Has this one still got the original Mk3 inner door moulding trims (ALA5772/5773) & have you found a source for these.
If that part no. is for the early stepped inner moulding then I've still got those on mine, outer ones are the minispares repro ones with the crimped metal ends.
Yup, that part number is for the 1" deep door inner moulding used (for wind up windows) up to some point in 1970, later Mk3s had a 1/2" deep moulding with felt. Being a 1970 blacktulips could have had either. More modern Minis used rubber instead of felt.
Only problem with the Mk3 door moulding is that they used staples to attach the felt, which can rust, expand, & scratch the glass! Thrown lots of Mk3 door glass away as they had been scored too deeply to polish out. Wondered about re-attaching them with stainless wire or using a PU adhesive sealant.
