  1. Hi Roger,

    Thanks for the compliment. The photo was taken in early September, somewhere high up in Italy. I cant be too exact as we were on the Club Triumph 10 Country run and at times it was all bit of a blur but bloody good fun. I would say the cars colour is an Old English White but cant be more exact than that as the car underwent a renovation in the late 90's and I have only had the car for 14 years.:blink:


  2. Hi Pete,

     

    I brought a set of ARE magnesium wheels back from the states and had them crack tested and refinished by Ian Jemison. http://www.ianjemison.co.uk/

     

    I was a little concerned with putting a set of original mag ARE wheels on my TR but the crack testing gave them a clean bill of health and the finish that was applied stopped all further corrision. They still look as good as they did when finished and have done @18K since. Ian Jemison offers great advice from my experience.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Chris


  3. Gentlemen,

     

    As the title indicates I am trimming a hardtop and rearscreen this afternoon, I am taking my time and everything is going fine. I am however pondering how far to pull the vinyl round or where to finish the vinyl at the rear of the hard top.

     

    Would anybody be able to forward or publish a photo of how this should be finished for my clarification/sanity?

     

    Thanks

    Chris


  4. Hi

     

    I am clearing out my garage and these original TR4 steel wheels take up too much space so have listed them on ebay.

     

    Might be of interest to someone here. If you have any questions or want more photos please shout.

     

    It would be good to see them off to a good home!

    Cheers

  5. Tim,

     

    IF, and that is a big IF the glove box lid and hinges are still available I would be interested and would be happy to pay shipping and donate £60 to either Cancer Research or a charity of your choice. If formulites think that is not a fair price please say......no offence will be taken.

     

    Cheers

    Chris


  6. Tim,

     

    It may be worth you speaking with the lads at TR Enterprises. I was only speaking with them last week and they were showing me a steering rack they have developed and it was a quality bit of kit. It would be up to the rigours that you would put it under :). Those lads know what they are doing.

     

    Cheers

    Chris
