SEAT FRAME TACKING STRIP KITS, TR2, TR3,
TR4
“Developed by TRF to Allow You to Restore Your Seats to
Original Specification”
Seats fitted to the TR2, TR3, and early TR4 models had their origins in the
carriage industry.  Seat padding consisted of horsehair, cotton wadding, and
hessian, what we know as burlap.  While some glue is used, much of the
upholstery is secured to the seat frames using very small trimmer's tacks
hammered into wooden tacking strips. Tacking strips are secured to the seat frames
with split rivets.  When the tacks are hammered through the tacking strips, the
ends of the each tack curl against the metal of the seat frame, creating a barb
which prevents the tack from pulling back through the tacking strip.
On the fixed (non-folding) seat, the upholstery is pulled down over the seat
back and is tacked to strips found on the bottom of the seat pan and on the inside
contour of the seat frame.
Only one tacking strip is used on the folding seat.  It is located on the lower
edge of the seat back to secure the seat upholstery with tacks.
Tacking strips are made from a special plywood material and each kit listed
below includes tacking strips for one pair of seats.  Each kit also includes
trimmer's tacks and split rivets.
Two tacking strip kits are listed below.  We have found that there are two
variations in fixed seat pans.  Most of the early seats that we have seen have four
indentions across the seat pan, while the TR4 seats and some TR3 seats are plain
across the bottom.  Photos of each type are provided below.  Please choose the kit
that is appropriate for your seat.
