Just been in contact with andrew from that company and the diaphragms are now 32£ each. :(

Potentially better to mod mgb ones now. ...


Btw: were early se5 seats different from later se5a ones? Thought were all the same?

I paid more than that for new SS1 (TR7) diaphragms. How much are the SE6 ones that GW had? SE5 and SE5a upholstery is different but not sure if the frames are the same?
