  1. I made some out of copper tube, I think it was 8mm. Split a section along part of it’s length and opened it up and partially flattened with a hammer. Not perfect but does the job. Eddie
  2. Hi Neil, I have chickened out and taken up Roger's offer but for £10 or so would be tempted to try covering the existing one as an experiment. Do you have the details of the vinyl you used? Thanks Eddie
  3. Hi, I've just found these are missing off my TR250. I have all the others. These don't seem to be available at Moss and £27 each at Rimmers. They don't look very substantial so I was thinking a bit of bent bar would suffice. Has anyone else done this? Thanks Eddie
  4. Thanks Mark, Have just checked the price, £210. I'll have to think about it. I might buy the vinyl to recover first and if that doesn't give satisfactory results bite the bullet and pay the cash. Eddie
  5. I may have answered my own question. I have found that Park Lane Classics supply vinyl. Eddie
  6. My dashboard top has gone brittle and cracked. I see that people have re covered with vinyl.Does anyone know where to buy the vinyl from? I have some vinyl but it has a backing and doesn't seem flexible or stretchy enough to fit over the existing dash top. Thanks Eddie
  7. Just wondering if I could use short lengths of rubber pipe. One diameter to fit the hole in the bracket with the screwed bar inside and the larger to cut rubber washers to go either side of the bracket between the large washers. Eddie
  8. I had no idea what the grommets looked like or how they fit. I know now which is the beauty of this forum. Thanks to everybody. Edd
  9. I have tried a search for this topic but it came up with gearbox mounts and other topics before even mentioning wiper motors. I have the 3 threaded bars, washers and nuts but no grommets. I can't find anyone that sells these. Does anyone know where to buy them and have a picture/diagram of the arrangement. Thanks Eddie
  10. Nigel , thanks for the photos. I have bought some brackets and linkages off ebay for a Triumph 2500 which look very similar so I should be able to sort it out. Eddie
  11. Hi Roger, Do you take orders for the Surrey rear frame covers? Regards Eddie
  12. Have had stainless bumpers on my TR6 for around 10 years. No problems with fitting apart from cleaning out some threads. Bought from Harringtons who seemed to be cheapest. Made in Vietnam I think. Not as shiny as chrome. Eddie
  13. Thanks for the replies everyone. I have also tried phoning a few dealers but no joy. Nigel if you could get a photo of the installation that would be good. What is your last photo? Thanks Eddie
  14. I cannot find any details of how to connect the throttle cable to the carburettors. I suspect I may be missing bracket(s) . The 2 carbs are linked together but the is no obvious way of connecting a cable to them. Can anyone point me to photos, diagrams etc to help out. Many thanks Eddie
  15. Thanks Tim and Chris, I will check out TR shop. Eddie
