  1. +1 from me - just the sort of "adventure" to put TR's up front in the media. Ian

    TR8 history

    Start at the car's birth - Have you got a Heritage certificate? https://www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk/archive/heritage-certificates and work from there. Owners clubs are great sources of information Ian
  3. Hi Bruce - didnt Heritage have the original TR bucks, and then use them to make a complete TR6 bodyshell several years ago, (indeed one of their shells is fitted to the TR6 in the Gaydon museum), before giving up? Ex Pressed Steel are alive and kicking in Cowling, near Keighley, https://www.steelpanels.co.uk/ making quality panels for a variety of makes of classic cars, including Fords and Hillmans. Conjointly with the TRDC the SDF will be receiving some TR7 front panels towards the end of 2020 (covid stuff allowing) Ian
  4. Thanks Sean, very helpful, and the top of page 12 would point members with any continuing loss in the right direction (along with other references) It doesn't mention the sale of vehicle identities...........should someone point this out, and if so, who? Ian
  5. Maybe it's just me, but I would hope the "owners club" would stand up for its members, protect the TR marque, and if any of its membership suffered loss of money or parts from the sorry saga, (other than those who were fortunate enough to assist with Conrad and his asset recovery operation), it would pay for a lawyer to write to the auctioneers pointing out that some of the items were possibly the proceeds of crime, and auctioning log books and id plates was perhaps illegal? The TR Register accepted advertising from this person prior to its activities being revealed. As Miles points out "p
  6. Well done Roger - but if you fancy £10 per item, male fixings only................ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRIUMPH-TR2-BABY-TENAX-FASTENERS-VERY-HARD-TO-FIND-FACTORY-ITEMS-36-TOTAL-RS/373263935751?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  7. Here you go https://www.happich.de/en/company/overview-of-the-happich-group Ian
  8. Yes, it would appear that a post I read this morning criticising the TR4 registrar (maybe only interested in Dove's) from an experience he had, that led to a member leaving the Register? A good move to delete that particular post Ian
  9. Hi Russell My guess is yes, I'm not certain but TENAX may still make them. It's not the peg that is the problem for early TR owners, there are various alternatives available particularly in marine fittings. The problem is the spring loaded button that fastens to the peg, if you have a stock of the small TR size items, they are very rare, maybe not quite unobtainium as a forum reader managed to get hold of a significant number via an ebay purchase a year or so ago Cheers Ian
  10. Happy Birthday Stan, enjoy your special day Ian
  11. NDT at its best. You need a new one!
  12. Happy multiple birthdays to each of you, hope you enjoy your respective days Ian
  13. Hi Brandon and Greg Mike Bingley owned 2 TR6's, a white one and a red one, both of which were kept at Didcot after he passed away. I drove the red one to the 2012 IWE to and from Didcot, nice car. Cheers Ian
  14. And, as Pete W says, you can still get your annual TR Register subscription paid by MOSS if you spend a certain amount of money. eg If you were to buy a new TR 4 pot crank from them that would automatically qualify you for that offer! (Details are always in TR Action) Ian
  15. Yes, the very same stuff! Ian
