Headliner material:
NEWTON COMMERCIAL based at Leiston , Suffolk. <sales@newtoncomm.co.uk> Tel No 01728832880, they confirmed the original headlining material was "LONGHORN" and they had some in stock.[information recently supplied by a Club member]

A steel front valance will set you back about £500 if you can find one. There's an inner valance for round headlight cars on ebay at the moment, but as an option, there's always repairing what you have:

For screen rubbers, MEV Spares are the cheapest:

is it a Dolomite 1500 or a Triumph 1500TC, they have different rear bumpers. the Dolomite will have the two button lights, the 1500TC will have the long earlier type number plate light?

If it's a 1977, it's going to be a Dolomite 1500.

They may had stopped production in 76 but but were still being sold and registered in 77.

Square lights, so 1500 Dolomite.

Agreed, possible but not very likely. I don't ever remember seeing one on an S registration.

I've owned a 1500TC that had a registered date of 1977.
EDIT... as it as square headlights its a Dolomite, I had missed that detail.
