  1. Here are a couple of places discussing the elusive BRG: http://www.triumphtech.x10host.com/paint.html http://mgaguru.com/mgtech/paint/pt150f1.htm and some formulae: http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/paintdetail.cgi?ppg=44524
  2. +1 to Stuart's recommendation. I recently had this heater installed, using Stuart's photos as a guide, and drove several hundred miles in a cold rain with it. It kept me warm and toasty, and kept the windscreen from fogging up. Highly recommended!
  3. Bob and Others, Here’s a link to a thread on another forum about this topic with a photo showing the inside LTD stud. You’ll want to reverse that particular LTD snap, too. http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?106434-Hood-Stick-Cover-LTD-Studs&highlight=Tr3+upholstery Keith Jordan
  4. Thanks to Bob Le Brocq for fixing me up with a set of his LED tail lamps. I installed them this weekend. They fit perfectly and are quite bright, which is what I was looking for, particularly visibility to others. They give me a bit more confidence while driving at dusk along with halogen head lamps. If you don't already have a pair, I urge you to contact "lebro"! Thanks again, Bob!
  5. Inge, This may be the sidescreen thread you were searching for: http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?81211-Back-to-TR3-Sidescreens&p=1059948#post1059948
  6. Ian, Check out John Durant's threads on upholstery on the British Car Forum: http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?109923-Upholstery-!/page3 He shows in great detail how he covered the seats with Skinner's kit in his TR2 (and vents his frustration with after-market seat pans). The thread continues on page 4.
  7. Also, if youre concerned about originality, Frank Conklins post here (7th one): http://www.triumphexp.com/phorum/read.php?6,1451381,page=2 Talks about how the backs of the center gauge panel were signed by the assembler/technician at the S-T plant with the last three digits of the cars commission number and their initials. Being in pencil, the markings survive remarkably well. I found them on my 1957 TR3.
  8. Heres a virtual tutorial from the British Car Forum by John Durant. He restored a derelict TR2 and documented the whole process on the forum with lots of pictures. Covering the dash starts on the June 12, 2017 posting: http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?109923-Upholstery-!

  10. AlanR, Thanks for pointing out my error on TR identification. My typing hands were evidently disconnected from my brain!
  11. Here's an example of a black TR3A with red interior and red hood/weather gear: https://www.classicargarage.com/archives/triumph-tr-2-long-door-1954
  12. Brodie and Others, You might want to check out this thread regarding leaf springs and replacements: http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?111427-Leaf-Springs Keith Jordan
  13. Inge, I suggest you look at this thread on the British Car Forum: http://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf/showthread.php?109923-Upholstery-!/page5 It's by John Durant who recently restored a 1955 TR2 and describes in words and pictures exactly what to do. Keith Jordan
  14. Nice restoration and a nice photo. Congrats! I notice you're using a Moto-Lita steering wheel. What diameter is it and are you happy with the way it works? Keith
