    Originally joined the Register in 1984 when I owned a 1973 TR6 (OPC 310L) and another 73 TR6 (NAP 966M), then a basket case 68 TR4A (NHA 717F) and then another 68 TR4A (SUV 407F). Have recently found OPC 310L (TR6) and SUV 407F (TR4A), anyone know the whereabouts of my other TR6 (NAP 966M) and TR4A (NHA 717F)?

  1. Here's the first opinion Steve - I would say the Breezebreaker, made by club member Chris Russell but unfortunately Chris stopped making them a few years ago. There are two types depending on whether you have standard or MX5 seats fitted - the MX5 version sits a little higher to allow for the headrest height. Here's my TR6 fitted with both types, they pop up on eBay or offered by members on here from time to time: Cheers, Andrew

    TR6 Value

    Ridiculous idea to start at 99p with no reserve for Tim's TR6 and as for getting someone to bid against your own listing, is this really the kind of behaviour we want to promote on this forum? - it's a totally underhand and a morally corrupt practice, you should be embarrassed even to suggest it! Not surprising that Tim hasn't been back on here since last Friday - well, maybe that's another potential member lost, thanks for that!
  3. Yes mate, those were the (non-social media) days, so much simpler - me write a book? how about 'Confessions of a ............................ Cheers, 'George'
  4. Rod, Even Rog's (Pogo) Photoshop skills couldn't pull that one off - Ooh er missus...... Cheers, Andrew
  5. Have a great day Conrad. Cheers, Andrew
  6. Yes, Conrad, she was and still is mine, and I would like to confess that we dated for a while after this photo was taken, but we didn't.......... Cheers, 'George' John, I have reapplied to the DVLA for my licence, a tortuous and long-winded process. I'd like to say the last year has flown by, but it hasn't - hopefully I'll be driving again from early next month. Cheers, Andrew
  7. Been having a sort through all my TR photos and found a couple of Linda Lusardi posing with my old 73 TR6 (OPC 310L) in 1988, oh and me! Plus a copy of TRAction from Winter 88. It seems Linda has aged better than me, now without my dark hair, porn star tach and tattoo......... Cheers, Andrew (known to some as 'George')
  8. Adam, Pull the stator tube out and add a couple of small spot welds (file spots down as necessary) as this is what can and does happen when the stator tube and control head tube rotate on each other. Cheers, Andrew
  9. Thanks folks, an excellent forum response as usual - even though not TR related. Many thanks again for clearing up the mystery, at least to me. Cheers, Andrew
  10. Thanks folks - it was Bevs Grandfather's. I found these pics in a bunch of old photos which were taken in about 1962. Here's another view, I've done a bit of Googling based on your info and yes, there's no chrome strip under the windscreen and the shape of the rear window suggests it could be a Series 1 Husky van? Cheers, Andrew
  11. Can anyone tell me what car this is and what years they were made? I'm guessing the shoe on the roof are not OE.......... Thanks, Andrew
  12. Stephen, If the striker plate bolts are loose then don't push down on the bonnet as this will just make matters worse, from the front of the bonnet try getting someone to push the bonnet rearward a few mm keeping it flat (towards the screen) to force to striker plate against the loose bolts then see if you can release by lifting or gently levering the bonnet up in the area of the catch. Good luck, Andrew

    MX5 seats

    Darren, Mine do too, maybe less than yours (?), but the tonneau does fit - this was a quick lash up for the photos below i.e. the roof has been pretty much up since before last summer and is cold (vinyl) so wouldn't quite sit flat, so was the tonneau, but less of a problem with mohair. Have you tried fitting the tonneau? You need to zip it up after securing the poppers. Cheers, Andrew
  14. Hi Mark, It appears to have a circlip (ringed below) and is not crimped which means it can be reconditioned. Cheers, Andrew

    MX5 seats

    Daz, you need to push the seats as far back as they go - or maybe your seats are mounted higher than mine? Cheers, Andrew
