    Looking for 3 pcs. of the padded roll spring steel clips as shown on picture attached. Alternatively a used smooth padded roll will also do... IMG_0307.jpg

    No I didn't. Most people even don't know that they are existing. If you have 3 pcs let's follow up via PM...

    Got' em. Thanks to Eric G. Perhaps I'll post the method of how I repaired my SV waist roll with torn out/rotted away spring clips later. Think it could be interesting for other members facing the same issue...

    Hi all, this is just to let you know what happened with the spring clips respectively my waist roll repair:

    The replacement spring clips have been pop-up riveted to new "elephant skin" thick card board pieces and glued onto the waist roll cardboard remains. Looks and works great, I may post a picture of the car later...

    That's how the roll looks now:



    Came out pretty well, thanks to Eric G. for the clips and Woolies in UK for the "elephant skin cardboard" ;-)
