    TR6 dials

    Hello Tim My brother did the CAD work and sent it off for printing as a Christmas present, but I am working on a light weight design to keep cost down. 3D printing is not cheap and not all of those out there have the ability they claim to have James

    TR6 dials

    Hello Folks I have been renovating my rev counter for a number of months now. 1st of all changed it from mechanical to electronic using the Italian kit. Next step which has taken some time was to replace the damaged and pitted bezels. News ones are available but they are all chrome and I like the original look. So designed a paint mask in CAD and sent it off for 3D printing. Results of my efforts I have to say, is 9 out of 10 for originality. Just need to finish the other 5 gauges and the rest of the car now. Have a look at the attached for a few photos.
  4. Bonjour gang On holiday in South of France and called in to L'isle sur la Sorgue and spotted an Italian TR6, burble past. Still the tanks at the back of the gite takes some beating to regards James
  5. Hi John £45 for a kit including postage regards James
  6. Hi Austin £45 for a kit including postage (would be a little more for post to France though) regards James

  9. Just thought i'd share my latest piece of the TR6 restoration. Like many cars out there the radiator shield has seen plenty of action over the years and needed replacing. My brother has tested his CAD skills and designed a replacement. Side pieces are 5mm steel so will be more up to the job if it ever needs a tow. Finished welding it together today and i'm very pleased with the finished article. If anyone is interested in a kit of laser cut parts, to weld together yourself please let me know. regards James
  10. John Yes i'm James I used 20x40mm box section for the hoops and 2x25mm for the cross braces which bolt to the body. Need to improve the castor to frame securing method as I ran out of material. Alex Falize was the source of this design, but I thought it was a little on the heavy side and the braces were not removable from the frame. hope that helps James
  11. I've been busy fabricating a roll over frame for several weeks, to reach all those hard to find places on the body. I have impressed myself as I finished it today. The frame when attached can be easily rotated by pushing and holds the body secure. It will be useful to transport when its ready for painting Just back to underseal scraping and more welding. Have a look and see what you think. Its been done before I know but my frame is lighter
  12. I had a similar problem a few years ago on my Spitfire. Try cleaning the bullet connectors to the front indicator / sidelight units. May not work, but worth a try regards James
  13. Andrew This is the plate I noticed on your car. Should this be fitted to all TR6's? regards James
  14. That settles it, red it is for my car. Noticed on the photos for DPF there's a body stamped plate above the front grill. Should this be on all TR's?
  15. Cruising through southern France today, came across a couple of gems for sale just outside a village called Barjac. TR4 and Citroen Traction Avant if your interested enjoy James
