  1. David There are a s/h pair for sale on ebay right now item number 164183632226 with good photo's Think the alloy frames may be wedge type only bur as the locating arms are screwed on it would be an easy change to the Dzus type regards adrian
  2. Thanks Stuart Although not original i think i will stick with these, the s/h steel ones i have seen for sale look like they need a lot of work. I will get the frames polished locally and then have them anodised. The bottom flap looks an easy enough job for my local trimmer to redo Knew about woolies and baines but not seals direct should be able to find something at one of these regards adrian
  3. My early 3A (oct 57)came from the states with aluminium side screens fitted. These have no covering on the window part just what appears from the bits left a "T" shaped rubber seal that fits in a groove on the top edge from front to back. There is an upholstered flap that fits on the bottom edge. These are wedge fitting frames. Questions: are these correct as they are ie anodised aluminium as others i have seen are steel frames that have been covered Any idea of a source for the rubber seals Regards adrian
  4. This is the clip that holds the Foam rubber seal to the door bottom and top of A post. On stripping the car mine were either missing or just rusted away. The current price of these from a well known supplier is £1.61 EACH and you need in the region of 30+, do the maths!! Found the same item at Vintage Supplies Ltd part number 453 paid £19.32 for 40 inc p&p. www.vintagecarparts.co.uk Look the same to me as one i saved BUT please check yourselves Regards Adrian
  5. Before i go the route of later calipers on a cost basis for my 3A restoration i am looking at alternatives In Roger Williams book on improving TR2-4's he mentions the use of Toyota 4x4 front calipers as a conversion as they have a greater piston area being 4 over the OEM 2 Anyone done this mod and if so which calipers do you use Regards Adrian Salisbury
  6. Thanks to all who replied so quickly, looks like it is original production line process then. Intend to have shell dipped when panel work finished on the shell , have to find out if this removes the lead work regards Adrian
  7. Just returned to TR's after selling my TR 4 (john Weedon now runs it) with a late 1957 TR3A . It's an ex USA car advertised by the dealer as a 3 but the registrar confirmed what i thought, it was a very early 3A ( did not tell dealer of course!). I imported it back end of 2018 and it's the usual DRY STATE car, if so why am i fitting new floors, sills etc!! Question for you all: One thing that looked good on all the photo's of the car prior to buying it were the door gaps, wing fits etc. From contacting the previous owner its sat around for years before he sold it to a deal
