    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.

  7. Hi all, Your help is needed. I have a mate here in Spain who wants to change the paint from colour red back to the original which is ROYAL BLUE. I cannot visit him due to travel restrictions to a different region, Murcia. I live in Alicante The sample he supplied was not suitable, see below. He has not got a suitable sample to take to the paint shop. as the car is immobile. They have given him a trial pot which is DUPONT REFINISH POWER TINT B3/ B321. It looks more like Sapphire to me.. Bearing in mind he doesn't know other suppliers PPG etc any thoughts on the correct compos

  12. A belated Happy Birthday Conrad. I hope you had a good one. Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  13. Hi, I find that most suppliers are horrendously expensive, I find a lot of the time it seems they are making up the cost of the parts on the P+P., especially Ebay. There are private sellers also that seem to hike up the P+P cost to make more money, though not all. i agree a Jiffy bag could suffice. a lot of the time.. I too have paid more for the P+P to Spain, that the item cost if it is something I need asap. The Post Office used to be quite quick but now packages take 10 + days . Dave from a not so sunny Spain
  14. Hi, I believe it is off a 2.5pi saloon car. Kind Regards, Dave from a sunny hot and still locked down country.
