Reading time: 3 minutes

John Skinner interior trim featured in 6 of the 12 Concours d’Elegance winning categories at the TR International Weekend, 2021.

Set against the backdrop of the Malvern hills, the TR International show was the first of its kind when it welcomed the MG Car Club along to its annual event.

Alongside celebrating 60 years of the TR4, the Concours and Pride of Ownership competition showcased the best in TR and MGA restoration. John Skinner was the chosen interior trim supplier for most of the Concours d’Elegance winners on the day. Here we break down the winning entries and provide a run-down of all the interior trim items we manufactured that graced the cream of the crop!

Concours d'Elegance - Standard TR4/TR4A

John Skinner manufactured a complete interior trim kit for the winner of the Standard TR4/TR4A category

For the winning car, we made and supplied the following as per the below material & colour specification:

  • Interior Trim Panels: Vinyl: Cherry Red, Piping: White Leathercloth.

  • Carpets: Not JSM Kit.

  • Headlining & Sunvisors: PVC: White PVC Headliner

  • Boot / Trunk Area: Black Grain Faced Millboard Fuel Tank Board

  • Radiator Cooling Duct: Black Grain Faced Millboard. See note below.

Note: Even down to what some may consider a very basic millboard panel – the JSM kits reign supreme. Our customer initially bought this panel from a world renowned TR Wholesaler, only to find the part was badly made, and even worse fitting. Once he contacted to us – on the off chance that we made these parts too (we do!) – he was delighted to see that our kit was well made and fitted perfectly.
