  1. Take Stuart’s advice , take all the seals off first and the striker plates and see if it fits then , if it does work backwards so it shuts without seals then add seals

    I have received a call from one of my helpful contacts at the DVLA today regarding my query  and I was wrong in my above statement ! regarding the letter O  , they do have to use a Zero. However it can be spaced and they do hold on their historic internal records that the zero should be the letter O , so going forward that should not cause any owners a problem , I also have a confirmed reference to go to if we do have an issue .

    you are correct the remains where advertised and offered for sale by the late owners Son , and yes the price was rather large , and as far as I know are still for sale .

    However  the body chassis ,correct Sabrina engine and gearbox do still exist ,along with a few other parts ,  so there is still a possibility of a original Tr3s being saved .

  4. Everybody 

    of late we have had a couple of instances of the DVLA suspending V5 log books ,and of withdrawing the number . This has mostly done when a car has changed ownership or has been of the road for a long time , this has often been down to the fact that people have failed over time to inform the dvla via the changes section on the V5 . It is your responsibility to inform the dvla of all changes. This may also invalidate you insurance ,as in the case of a complete Rite off ! The cars numbers do not match the V5 and questions may be asked , for instance(  an engine change with different number may pose the question is it right for this car did the change alter the way the car handled , ultimately was it safe to be on the road) all places we do not want to be . As I said before any questions or help required contact me below.

    the lady was telling you wrong it is definitely possible to put an O and not a zero and it is also possible to space it from the numbers , fill in the changes section on your V5 and send it back , with a covering letter or if you wish I will do one on headed Tr Register paper currently you have an in correct V5 and that is technically an offence . You can mail me on the below if you wish

  6. The outer trim that goes around the door cards is much thicker than original ,,this does not allow the clips to open once pushed into the hole in the door , if you get a very sharp knife and trim off as much as that plastic trim around the clips as possible , and elsewhere , they will normally hold , sometimes you have to move the staples that hold it to the card as well.
