    TR6 Running

    Hi Guy's I need some expert advice please. Just started my 6 after a nut and bolt resto, tuned it up ok with strobe. My problem is that its running to fast what ever i do with the air bleed adj and worst of all the exhaust manifold and and S/S exhaust pipe is glowing cherry red, oil press is good, water temp spot on, what is causing this. If there is any member who lives close I would be willing to part with beer tokens for some help, post code IP16 4DU 19 Haylings Grove. Any thoughts would be grateful Nigel

    TR6 Roll Bar

    ​​Hi Guys I need a bit of help / advice, I purchased a " Narrow Alloy Roll Bar " from Rimmers code " RR1150NARROW " it came with no fitting instructions, when I tried to fit it there seems to be bits and pieces in the way under the car making drilling the holes fitting the back plates nearly impossible. I realise I am not the first person to fit one of these so if any of you experts can help me with some advice on how to proceed and may be some pictures or diagrams it would be much appreciated. ​In anticipation Nigel ( Nibbo )

    Hi thanks for the replies, if the sills are black under the crome /SS strip what about the bits under the front and rear bumpers ? should they be black or body colour ? Nigel

    Painting

    Hi Guy's, I'm about to paint my windscreen frame and rear panel, what is the correct black paint to use !! Also on my late 74 TR6 should there be a bright trim running along the sills ? and should the sill section under the trim be in the same black paint. Your thoughts / advice would be very much appreciated. Nigel
  24. Hi Pete, no the cost is not private, it was £2130 including picking up and delivering...I did pay cash though and got it considerably cheaper....pays to negotiate ( £1550 ) Nigel
