    chassis holes

    There are all sorts of holes under the front end of the TR7/8 bodyshell - the TR8 radiator bolts up differently to the TR7, other than that some are likely to be for drainage or used for transport during the factor manufacturing processes. Hope this helps. Ian
  2. Robsport have several advertised on eBay at the moment with new keys. Cheers Ian
  3. Certainly been in good hands! I look forward to seeing your new instalments of progress again. Cheers Ian

    front inner wings

    Try Robsport, Simon's panels normally fit reasonably well. Cheers Ian
  5. Indeed yes, Better to do it with the hood down, but once the screws are out they should just pull out. Cheers
  6. Interesting use of an old Essex County Council Library van! Cheers Ian
  7. Hi Ulster, All the trim pieces are held in by small black self tapper type screws, the two buckets by the hood mechanism are held in by four screws at the bottom edge and one more right at the top of the B post - take care they are easy to break. The big flat board is held down by the rear bulkhead panel at the front and then all three of the trim panels that sit at the bottom of the hood, again with self tapping screws through the hardboard panels - these may just pull off. ( I have remade all of mine with flexible plastic panelling which will be weather proof. Hope this helps Cheers ian
  8. Hi Christian, I will see if I can come along to this one. Just remind me of the date. Cheers Ian
  9. Agree with Al, The anti burst catch becomes lazy when it gets grubby and will stick. As with most things it may need to be serviced and cleaned, a little squirt of WD 40 might work wonders! Cheers Ian
  10. This is a much easier way if you are intending on pulling off all the suspension and everything. It would have been how they were fitted in the first place anyway. Cheers Ian
  11. Hi Ulster. There are jacking points just forward of the front floor pan (note pin sticking out of strengthening member) and at the rear at the rear of the cill panel. When I jack up my car on my lift I generally try to locate the rears onto the rear swinging arms if I don't want the suspension to drop. Cheers Ian
  12. Hi, Your seats look like all the other Tan seats I have, I have a "Tan" hood bag which is a colour match for the seats - what you have is very light. Cheers Ian

    Hot TR7V 8

    Hi Larry, I wasn't actually seeing any signs of overheating - it was just pointed out to me at Robsport at the time when I had the engine rebuild a few years ago and decided that I should replace the pump as well. I don't have a working temperature gauge in my car at the moment and the car seems to behave very well and didn't smell hot even on a trip to France during the summer. Would it be worth having further look at the radiator and perhaps back flushing the whole system. I do by the way run a good strong mix of antifreeze with deionized water rather than tap water. Good luck Ian
