Mounting a Sebring Valance
Posted by: 1MGBV8

I'm in the process of mounting a rear Sebring valance on my 75 B. I purchased it from Moss and the panel looks great however it came without any mounting hardware or instructions on how to do it.
I have some ideas on how to go about it but was noticing that several cars on this site have these on. I was wondering if any of you could give me some pointers on the best way to do this. Trial and error can be a real time drain. Love the site .

I'm getting ready to do the same. Got the valance through Bill Guzman (who's also a Moss distributor) & will be starting to fit it in the near future. Have a little info from another member on how he did it, but am also interested to hear how others went about it.

It looks like on morspeed performance's web site he has a diagram and description on how to mount his version. It is fairly complete and is along the lines of what I was thinking of doing.
I also was hoping to hear from some others who may have done this.

The morspeed web site, has all that nice glass styling pieces and said not taking any orders !!!!
I was told he could not make a full time living so he quit making them. Why not make them part time and make a little extra money? If he does not want to do it , find the right kid to teach how after school and make a little extra money. I know one thing , it is hard to make money in that type of business. Parts look first class and so does the web site.

Problem is, some folks don't have any "part time" left over. Life gets in the way. Not to mention the second job. You seem to be implying there's something lacking in Tim, for putting his family first. Don't do that.

For some of us, our "part time" is more valuable than extra money. My thoughts are why work extra hours part time to make the money to buy things you won't have time to enjoy because you are so busy working extra hours part time to pay for them. Why not just kick back and enjoy what you've got?

Tim is a stand up guy, very nice. Last time I talked with him they were waiting to sell their house and move to PA area. I haven't talked to him in a while so I'm not sure how he is doing but I know when we were at his place he walked us through the process and it was a time consuming one. I bought an MGC hood skin to use on my B from him and he was nice enough to give me everything needed to do the job along with some repair stuff for the set of fiberglass front fenders that I have for the car.

From the TR7 forum:

"I'm not doing too much fiberglass at this time. I have few orders backed up and not much time to work it. bummer.
