Not to sure i assumed there would be one type.The one in the car is flat but has been trimmed. I read that it should be in place by 3 rivets?this bit is obviously missing?Also it does not fully meet the screen?

When shelf removed there is a rubberish sort of material going across.I assume this is sound deadoning?..the shelf has never been  a good fit but i lived with it...now i have fitted two shelf speakers it pulls the shelf down in front of said rubber hump which has lifted the back. My thinking is get/make a proper shelf and start again.....I thank you for your reply it is much appreciated as is your knowledge....cheers kev

Is that Corky's old car? If so i suppose you need the straight one,.as it is an "S". Not sure though if the SA cars had different parcelshelves, as i seem to remember that the S seats i brought Corky were slightly different to the ones in his car.

Yes it is his old car. The rear seat is taunus(no arm rest)to be honest all this time the rear seats were just placed!I have managed to fix them they are close to cortina but slightly different. The parcel shelf never quite fitted,I dont know if it is original suspect it has been altered what ever it is. It looked a lot better until i fitted some speakers. It has this rubber stuff? running across the back shelf?is this why some models have a hump? I thought if i can get a correct shelf i can make a much better job of it.

To be honest if i could find a decent set of black seats front and back i would change. I love the green cadiz but it is past its best back and front not very noticeable but will only get worst.Thanks for replies chaps:Beer:

an S never had an armrest, as it had the "plain seats",shaped like the Standard and L-model. divided rear seats and armrest were on GL and Ghia, that´s  why they have the "humped" shelf.

and maybe this is of interest as well? and just a thought, i guess you could sell the S-seats for good money, as they are hens teeth- though i m not sure if this would be wise if you ever want to sell your nice car

Thank you so much. I am still scratching my head? I have seen on this site someone posted with picture corktina car with armrest and it was green  cadiz?

I have never really paid that much attention to rear parcel shelfs. Mine is flat but a very poor fit,so really it should suit my seat(non arm rest). 

The pictures are great and the seats look the same as when you delivered them, bit cleaner.

I might have to make a shelf. I might take the car to a seat restorer to see what they think.

I will try and find the post i mentioned.

Thanks again you are most helpfull:winner_first_h4h:

you´re welcome, i m always happy to help, though my knowledge on coils spring Cortinas isn t very deep-and on  SA cars it´s even more thin. maybe specialists as Craig can tell more. not much i found in my "archive" as well, here is an excerpt of an SA brochure:

Your a gent sir..I have been doing some digging and it seems SA seats are different.As in your post my car originally had a rear center arm rest.

I think i am going to have to make something for now,and keep a sharp eye out for seats/parcel shelf sales

Its people like you that make this forum so good:thumbsup:
