    I have just bought a 1953 A40 Somerset ,which I am gpoing to restore.Basically it is very good,but over the years has had layer upon layer of bad painting done.I have slackened the front wing of to remove the white plastic trom so that I can do the spray job correctly.however I would like advise on how to remove the rear white plastic trim .I see there are some bolts in the boot ,if these are the ones ,how many are there .Also where is the best place to buy front and rear screen seals



    Ray Dawes (Spares sec.) has some front screen seals – he may have rear ones too.


    Hi Digcot65 ??
    It’s some years since I sold my Somerset however the manual says that: “Each rear wing is secured in 11 places. Four of these are hidden beneath each rear door rubber cushion…….. The remaining seven securing points are nuts and bolts passing through the wheel arch, six of which are accessible within the luggage compartment. To gain access to the seventh, remove the quarter casing situated above the wheel arch and partially obscured by the rear seat squab. ……..”

    I hope this is of some help. Good Luck with your project.
