Hi All
I’m reshaping a pair of old tr6 headrests too replace my tombstone headrests and need the measurements of the roadster headrest as I like the look of them.
So could some kind person help me with the length, width, hight of the headrest padded area.
This is the oval shape sorry I can’t attach a picture age related no tech knowledge.

Rob,
Welcome. I have a 3.7l Roadster but the Brooklands Edition so I'm not sure if this helps or confuses the headrest are similar but different to the standard 3.7l Roadster
Richard V6's red car next to another Brooklands shows the difference

As I drove to Felixstowe Sur Mer today for some med sunshine I added the last photo

Hi John
Looking again at your headrests the tr6 ones I’m looking to alter are very similar in shape but smaller, I think I might just bulk them up with 1” to each end and add about the same on top tapering to nothing on the front and copying yours. I just hate the tombstone headrest on the car it’s probably just me.
Thank you for your input very much appreciated.
Regards
Rob

I will when finished, and work out how to get photo size right as I’m struggling to upload pictures to this site.

Use the Talk Morgan image server rather than trying to post them directly.

1. Set up an account on tm-img
2. Upload your picture
3. Copy the BBCode link from the Embed Codes section and paste it into your post.
