  1. Just a thought, when the tyre is balanced would this account for the disc being out of balance. Eddie
  2. Bought a 9" angle grinder a few years ago. Worked fine on the odd job for a few years then when used for several flags it packed up. So OK for light use which is what most people need. Eddie
  3. Thanks everybody. The stripes definitely finish the car off and its good to know the trim can be sprayed separately and still look good. Unfortunately when I unpacked the trim today both front wing trims are squashed. I don't know if they can be pushed back into shape and I purchased them back in March so I don't expect a lot of joy from the seller. Eddie
  4. I will have everything sprayed separately. I don't know if there are any downsides but maybe the joint between wings and body won't be waterproof. Possibly I should use a clear silicon sealant. The trim is stainless. Does this need a different primer? Thanks again.
  5. Thanks Mark and Stuart, I will have to take the trim to the body shop to get sprayed along with the body. I must have have misread about the trim not being painted. Is the TR4's that don't have it sprayed. Eddie
  6. Mark, Thanks for the info. I see that the stripe goes over the beading but I thought that otherwise the beading wasn't painted over. Both these seem to show the beading painted body colour. Eddie

  8. I was going to get vinyl stripes for my TR250 but my bodywork guy has said that he likes doing stripes. Does anyone have a modern paint code for these? i assume these do not cover the stainless piping, is this correct? Thanks Eddie
  9. I used an adjustable reamer and ebay pins. Old pins came out fairly easily with butane torch .No play now.
  10. Hi Harry, i don't know if the gearbox is dolomite or another saloon/car but from memory the input shaft was the same length but smaller diameter and finer splines.The end of the shaft fitted the bearing in the flywheel/crank. i have GT6/Dolomite clutch, TR250/TR6 pressure plate and release bearing. Apart from drilling the gearbox output flange to match the prop I have everything else as TR250 except converted to RHD. The output flange still needs minor machining to fit over the spigot on the propshaft flange. My intention was to get an MOT first and then carry on with work as I
  11. I assume this would apply also apply to a perspex rear screen. Are there any downsides to a perspex screen? Thanks Eddie
  12. Jerry, that's what I was told. i am going to Moss's to get the clips so I will find out if I have the right ones. Regards Eddie
  13. Thanks Tush and Mark, It is only the doors. The wings have the holes drilled in them. Regards Eddie
  14. I suspect the doors on my car are TR6 because of the inner pull handle and lack of holes for the stainless outer trim. Unfortunately I have had them painted before drilling any holes but suppose I can always put something on to try and prevent rust at the drilled holes. Does anyone know how many fasteners I need for the trim? I have some 2nd hand trim which I am informed is wlder than TR4. Thanks Eddie
  15. Hi, Thanks again, it looks like it will be door mirrors. There seem to be plenty of posts on this. Eddie
