    Default R4 door hold-back straps

    Hi all,
    I am looking for a suitable replacement for my totally roached door straps/webbing. Is there a suitable alternative - I have looked through all the usual supply houses and none seem to carry them. Any leads most welcome.

    There is apparently a good supplier in Holland, used recently by an R4 owner in Perth: https://www.facebook.com/rquatre.nl and he got what he needed (he did not want straps though). Weren't they just webbing with attachments? I can't quite remember.

    You could ask on this forum - although the exact post is 12 years old so not much use I suspect.

    Good luck.

    Thanks John,

    I had been to the Dutch site, but no luck. The straps are a type of webbing, but quite specific to the car. It has several layers, most of them black rubber, but the outside layers are a type of off white canvas. I'll probably have to set up a temporary rubber strapping until I can locate the right material.

    I find that, although these cars are very well catered for with spares, there are the odd pieces that no one bothers about. Maybe the originals last so long there is no need for replacement parts?

    Maybe consider several layers of the excellent upholstery webbing used under chair cushions?

    Or maybe some old seat belts.

    Well yes, but they have no "stretch". I agree they'd do the job.
