[Healeys] FW: BT7 Tunnel Cover Carpet

The cover that Simon showed looks to be an original for a center shift 
BN7/BT7.  I have one that is a turquoise color. You don't say which hole 
is extra.  The smaller round one with a grommet to seal it is for the 
speedo cable, as you say.  The large rectangular grommet is access to 
the dipstick and the large round one at the top of the 'tower' is where 
the shift lever goes through.  And at the rear is the hole that does not 
go all the way through is for the ash tray to nest in.

So it seems that the BJ8 cover must be a variation of the original design.
