    Mainly TR6's. I am now down to one of them now, I have totally restored five of them three to concours condition, the rest were to a high standard, restoring them mainly by myself. All information and photos about my TR6s' and the restoration of them are on my websites www.tr6pi.com www.tr6pi.co.uk www.tr6pi.info Also on the site is a buyers guide which hopefully will help potential buyers of their TR6 with a little advice.

    TR6 Steering wheel 15 vs 14,5 inch - Advises

    It is difficult to get your arm through a 14.5" steering wheel to put the key in the ignition, it drove me mad, so I changed mine back to a 15", so much better and correct for my car year. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain

    Vredstein Tyres

    Any good, Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  15. Hi Dave, I see from an older post that you fitted a top tinted windshield to a TR6. I just wanted to know if this was the one supplied by Moss and if you had any problems with its fitment.


    1. dave-lewis



      Regarding the top tint screen. Yes it was purchased from Moss and it was fairly easy to install, really takes two people, one to push the glass and the other to pull the corded seal out on to the screen.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

      Dave from Spain
