MG TD TF 1500 - Front Trim Panels TF

Can I fit the front trim panels to my TF without removing the dash board? It looks as though I may be able to remove the corner bolt and push the panel up??

Yes you can if you apply sufficient force and slightly dish the panel as you push it into position. Be conscious of sharp edges on the dash fixing bracket.

I have had mine in and out numerous times adjusting door locks.

Hi Jan,

I agree with Graeme, assuming you have the proper flexible millboard. A bit harder on the passenger side, where the foot rest gets in the way, but perfectly achievable if done carefully and slowly.

I said as much on a thread a few weeks ago when it was suggested the dash, steering wheel etc had to be removed !

Thanks guys,

I have now done a trial fit with the old panels and it is quite possible. I was hoping to use the original backing boards which are in good condition apart from the cut outs for the lock striker plates - they are about 10mm to low. Does anyone have a UK source for suitable fibre or other board. An alternative would be to repair the original backers. Could I do this with resin an glass fibre tape?
