    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.

  1. Hi Richard, Glad to hear you are a TR6 owner once again. Welcome back to the TR Register, I remember you well from the Coventry group when I was the group leader.. I hope you enjoy your new group, I am sure they will give you the same welcome as we did all them years ago. Kind Regards, Dave from sunny Spain
  2. Hi, Daft question really, but have you checked the tyre pressures? Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  3. Hi Keith, Take the runners off the seats and bend the ends straight in the vise. The holes will line up to these type of brackets. I hope this helps, Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  4. Hi Tom, I saw this on Ebay not sure if it fits yours or how to attach it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lucas-DR2-DL2-DR3-6W-Pair-Classic-Car-Wiper-Motor-Brushes-508170-17H5396/222986655185?epid=2093775382&hash=item33eb0a55d1:g:4GwAAOSwew5bArHh Regards, Dave from Spain
  5. Hi Iain, Originally the sills and bottom of the wings would have been coated with a rubberised substance called body Shutz. This is not impossible to do now, as the product is widely available, though not sure if available in a rattle can. if you have a compressor and a shutz gun, mask off the area above the swage line and at the back of the sill because it spits out everywhere, The Shutz if applied correctly should prevent the ingress of water. There should also be a trim finisher strip riveted along there. It looks as if it is a CR series car so would have had the wide sill finisher. I hope this helps. Dave from Spain
  6. Thanks Jose, will do. thanks. To all the TR people going to Pamplona, Have a safe journey and drive carefully. See you there. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  7. Hi Jose, I spoke too soon. I just drove up the road to fill up ready for the trip and the, I assume the angle drive has gone again. So it's back to the drawing board, again. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  8. Hi Roger, Strange that, I remember there was always a small sachet of red rubber grease in the Girling packet. Economising or knicked? Kind Regards, Dave from a sunny Spain after the "Gota Fria"
  9. Hi Jose, Sorry to hear that. After how many kms did it break? Was it another repro or a soldered repaired one like mine? As I am leaving for Pamplona, probably approx 1800 kms round trip next week , I am hoping that my soldered angle drive will last.Otherwise it is back to the drawing board, again. We shall see! Kind Regards, Dave from a cooler rainy Spain
  10. Hi, The 69 inch cable is what you need If you can get an extra inch one probably better.. I route it from the angle drive along the lip of the floor, curve it over the gearbox bell housing through the hole/grommet in the cover then up to the speedo. If it is a repro angle drive you may find that the cable is turning in the part that goes to the gearbox. See my post above. I have lost count how many times I have had the angle drive on and off, I have got it to a fine art now taking the seat out, pulling the carpet out and removing the cover plate. 10 minutes. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  11. Hi Nigel, I have had two of the repro angle drives both developed the same problem the cable turned in the part that goes into the gearbox.I contacted Alan T but not offering a repair service , maybe in the future. I had to resort to o ther sorts of "cures" such as soldering (not very good at that) , epoxy resin but after about 20 30 kms the cable worked loose. In the end a mate filled up where the cable goes into the cog with solder. That seemed to work though early days, the big test will be when I drive to Pamplona for the European meeting on the 20th September. Give it a try. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  12. domain registered on 14 August. According to whois.com Regards, Dave from Hot sunny Spain
  13. Hi Kevo, One other cause may be the rubber pipe which takes the excess water from the plenum and drains it into the wing void. either perished or may have come off. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  14. Hi all, Getting packed ready for the trip to Osnabruck. As you can see my route is the oppsite of Andrews, Google tells me it is 2,250 Kms from my house in the Costa Blanca. and should be 2,250 kms back again, we shall see. This is what I am packing for now. More to go inside the boot. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  15. Just ordered mine to put on my TR6, ready for the drive from Spain to Osnabruck in June. Kind Regards, Dave from hot and Sunny Spain
