Spitfire hood frame

Where are you based? Perhaps I could have a little drive on a nice weekend. I'm not in a hurry, it hardly gets used & the hood frame has already eaten holes in the seats, I'd just like to get it sorted out before doing anything with the seats.

I think it's a common issue with the mk3 if you have the seats set quite far back, I've seen several examples since having the problem myself. The mk4 improved it by having narrower seat backs and nifty little shrouds on the hood frame. I ended up making some cardboard sleeves (reinforced with gaffer tape) to post over the hood frame hinges. The damage is already done to the seat covers but it's not getting any worse.
