  1. Check the red/green wire bullet connecter under the dash coming from the light switch. It goes to the fuses and then onto the side lights.

    I had this problem only last week and I found a bad spade connection on the red/green wire going into the fuse board.

    It was a brand new wiring loom as well.


  2. My metal louvre vents are a little worse for wear and require bead blasting and new satin black.

    Is it possible to split these vents by taking the front rims off without doing too much damage and will they go back together with success.

    The last thing I want to do is open one up and not get it back together again.



  3. Hi Tim

    Sorry wasn't completely clear. The bonnet is the original from the car, but the boot whilst not a TR4 boot is an original TR250 boot from America.

    The boot is mint and has never been repaired along the bottom edge where they all seem to go and the badge holes are the same as the TR5.

    The only spare panel I have is a NOS Stanpart right hand side rear inner wing still with the Stanpart sticker on.

    Pamela David enamels will restore that badge for you and it will come back rechromed and enamelled and looking like new.


    The results are very impressive.


    Google them they're down near you.



  5. I've just picked up my bumpers from the chromers today and very happy with the results.


    I'll be using Tectyl 506 to rustproof the inside of the bumpers, but will it be better to paint inside them first?


    What's the best paint to use here and will it stick well to the rough chrome on the insides?





  6. My friend came round looking for a coil for his old landrover to get him out of trouble.

    I happily took off my 10 year old coil from my TR6 as I had a new Lucas gold DLB 105 spare.

    Fitted the gold coil to the 6 and it ran like a dog missing on take off.

    Got the old coil back and I can't believe the difference.

    Was this the wrong coil?

    What is the best coil to fit these days?
