I am a new member of this forum, who is just starting a full restoration project of my 1955 BN1. The boot is badly molested and is missing brackets for the support bar on both the lid and inside left fender well. The concours guidelines don't seem to have any images as to how the factory attached the support. Can anyone provide photos of what is correct?

Are this the photos you are looking for? cant garantee this is correct but it is according the Anderson restoration guide page 58.

TRUNK LID
"The trunk lid was painted body color on the underside, but the nuts fastening to the hinges were unpainted. The lid was held open with a sliding self locking assembly that was released by lifing the trunk lid slightly before closing it.This assembly was zinc-plated. The assembly bolted on the left side to a flange on the trunk lid and, with a small wood packing block to the left rear wheel arch on the body below the trunk opening lip. etc etc

Thank you Johan. This confirms that my friends Healey is correct and I can use it for a pattern.

Roy,

Look also on the site of a swedisch restoration company called BORAS Motor Corporation,

http://healeyspecialists.com/restoration-of-the-first-healey-imported-into-sweden/

Verry good detail photo's and sorry Image 103 of 1161 shows an other position of the bottom fixing point of the locking assembly.
But you must find old holes showing the position in your car.
