Back on topic, I do have a small problem that I am looking to solve - a bit of an understatement actually, as I have spent most of the afternoon on tinternet looking for the right item.
If you have managed to follow the thread so far, you will see that I have made a backplate for the suicide seat backrest cushion, to go on the front of the console. There are recesses for the hinges moulded into it, and I think that I have found a stay that will keep it hinged up when filling with fuel (the fuel filler cap is behind it), BUT I have yet to come up with a way to keep the d____d thing shut
My original thinking was a marine version on the principle of the little latches I use to keep the loft hatch shut, as in the arty shot below. I have seen similar in nylon but cannot find it now. Does anyone out there have any good ideas/know where to get such a thing. Any other ideas on how to keep an uphostered flap closed? All ideas gratefully received.
