'anti drum' door brackets

lift the dot fastener for back seat SeriesII

Dear all could someone please send me a pic of the lift the dot fastener male part used to keep the back seat in place for the series II, I read that for this series you could access the boot space from inside the car, meaning the stud is on the back parcel shelf under the rear window?

hub caps for series II

Trying on my new hubcaps (plain without the 'M' embossed) for my series II seems like really tight to get them in! I'm afraid it would be also much harder to take them out! anyone had a similar experience?
