The MGA With An Attitude
ARMREST Drawing for the MGA -- INT-115

By popular demand, here is a true scale drawing of the MGA armrest. Click for larger printable PDF file (100-KB). The drawing is 32 inches wide by 36 inches tall at 300 DPI. It will print out full scale on a 34"x44" D-size sheet. If you print the same large PDF image on 8-1/2 x 11 paper with 1/4 inch margins it will be exactly 1/4 scale (and very easy to read).
MGA Armrest D rawing
Note that the plywood piece is an optional part supplied with the Moss Motors armrest kit (which is included with their leather seat cover kit). Te plywood is not correct for original MGA. Originally the armrest was open at the bottom and was sewn around the bottom edges to the tunnel carpet. The tunnel carpet had an opening under the armrest where the foam cushion was inserted. It has been reported that the underside carpet opening was coarsely sewn shut before the carpet was installed in the car. See following page for details.
