  1. Richard, I used this one although I didn't buy it from this supplier. https://www.toolstation.com/spray-contact-adhesive/p47790?store=DH&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=CjwKCAjwmKLzBRBeEiwACCVihj_j7tJFdKsGSvHP33qdmUPtMEVSSpv1V2k4RuIHyojzmeUYXGg_iRoCWgUQAvD_BwE. Used it on lots of applications including hood cover and carpets. Worked very well. HTH Sean
  2. Happy Birthday Sue, and many happy returns. Hope you have a great day. Sean
  3. Don't hold your breath Tom. He promised me a pint at Stratford last year and then went and cried off sick. Any excuse! Only joking Andrew . Glad you're getting back on form Sean

    paint scheme

    The original factory colour for the rear panel was matt black for all years. I painted mine Satin though, because Satin is easier to manage. I think the sills were painted with some type f schutz but not sure on that one,
  5. In case anyone is looking for one, I spotted this ROM for sale on ebay. Price is currently very low so possibly a great bargain for someone. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triuph-Original-TR5-TR6-Repair-Operation-Manual/303462077421?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 This is the version of the manual that I have and that I used throughout my restoration. No connection, just spotted it. Sean
  6. Congratulations Paul. That's a nice patina!
  7. Great photo Nigel. Both Triumphs looking stunning. I have just bought a 1976 Bonneville T140V, although it has not arrived yet. Its coming from Denmark and is a US spec. I wanted a post 76 bike as that's when the gearshift changed to the left and as a fairly novice biker I didn't want to have to re-adjust my brain every time I got on the triumph. It's a bit of a restoration project but looking forward to discovering all about it. Also what a lovely way to find a PO of your car. Best wishes, Sean

    Wing sealant

    Use White Spirit on a rag to wipe off excess from panels. Works a treat if you have 2pack paint.

    Carpet fitting

    I used a heated nail to burn through the carpet to make holes. Could also use a soldering iron with an old tip
  10. Looks like you had a grand day out John. That's what TRs are for. Well done.
  11. That doesn't look like an original metal tube to me. Don't think mine are chromed. Also evidence of some kind of sealer/glue around the hole in the TB.

    Mark, Of course you are right. The pipe in my picture is the return pipe. I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question and hopefully someone else will. What I can say is that I rebuilt mine in the same configuration as before but with a new stainless return pipe, heater matrix and heater valve and the heat output is very good indeed. Probably too good. Sean

    Hi Mark, I'm not sure what the mod that you're referring to is, but as far as I know in the TR6, the heater matrix feed already comes from the back of the water pump housing as per the attached pic. This was mine prior to strip down.
  14. The video taken by your doorbell Stan? Love it.
  15. I'm sure they can be glued, but this could cause a problem if you ever need to take the front or rear wings off in the future. I fitted mine with rivets and was glad I did, when my rear right wing needed to be removed a few months later for some re-shaping following a minor accident.
  16. Thanks Steve, I used Elin Yakov's approach from this video https://youtu.be/Hz0hx3ShaQs?list=PLLWNLIF9Lk97xZsbU0dUidAa48bxRUw-t This is the second of two videos and I followed both, with one exception - when it came to stretching the vinyl over the front rail, I propped the rail open about an inch with a couple of short lengths of 2x1 and stretched the vinyl as tight as I could get it. This worked well and when the 2x1 was removed the stretch on closing with the latches was perfect. As you see in the vid, the glue is fairly forgiving and if the first stretch is not perfect you can unstick it and go again. BTW, I also did the webbing fold at the front rail correctly, not the way he does it in the first video. Hope this helps Sean
  17. That's how I did mine during the Christmas break last year. It was freezing outside but toasty warm in the garage. Had two wall heaters heating the room and a fan heater in the car. I was happy with the result.

    Finally painted

    Congratulations on a milestone reached Waldi. It's all downhill from here and you will be on the road in time for summer. The car looks terrific as do the gaps as others have said. Wishing you a peaceful and happy Christmas. Don't spend too much time in the garage, ignoring the family. (I fitted my soft top and had a first complete car drive during the Christmas holidays last year) Sean
  19. Charlie just had to join in. He's a bit poorly at the moment, recovering from a second flare up of pancreatitis. This was him in better form in the summer.
  20. Hi Gary, I can't help with the paint code, but I painted mine with UPOL Power Can Wheel Silver and she still looks good after about 1500 miles. Hope this helps. Sean

    Rear wing seal

    Hi Stuart. I actually did all of those bits too. Just hadn't done them when I took the photo.
