  1. Not the best pics but late TR6 wheels with chrome discs from Moss. The 3A hubcaps would leave the outer rim holes part covered but I was willing to sacrifice that to cover the hub and lug nuts. To fit the caps I had planned to drill holes and thread in the studs pictured, made by a friend (free) but still haven’t got around to it. I went to wider rims and tyres because I thought they’d improve grip and also a friend following me was less than complimentary about the appearance of the skinny originals. The car was rust and body putty and junk when I bought it so originality was never a worry.
  2. I’ve never seen one. Any chance you could post a picture? My TR3 will, one day, be Winchester Blue but it will be some time before I need a blue suitcase for it...but I’d still like to see what it looks like. Paul
  3. Tom, I sent reply to your email address. Thanks, Paul
  4. I’m trying to find a source for Winchester blue paint for my ‘57 TR3. It’s PPG Ditzler 12013, ICI Mix 5944, Martin Senour 25430. I’m told this isn’t enough info and I should supply a sample. My car is mostly rust with a few patches of the original Colour on panels that can’t be sent in the post. Any help greatly appreciated. Paul
  5. On my 3A, brakes all re-done with new stuff, brake fluid squirts out the pin hole on top of the reservoir. Not much, just enough to take the paint off part of the lid. On the one in the picture, from my TR3, PO must have had the same problem. He soldered the curly copper tube over the hole and I’m assuming that would prevent the little squirt from ruining the paint. Good point about clearing the bonnet. It does with about an inch to spare. On the TR3, It’s a long way off but I’m switching to dot5 when the time comes. So the curly copper tube will just be a conversation piece. By then I’ll have thought up a good lie or two about it too. Current status pics
  6. From previous owner, cleaned polished and painted by me. It will be a few years before I know if fluid still squirts out but I don’t think it will. And it looks awfully cool to me. Paul
  7. If you go to the Triumphexp.com site under the TR3 Forum, under the title “Paint, or Not another Red, Green or fill in the blank TR3” about fifteen subjects from the top is an interesting explanation of the correct BRG. Paul
  8. Tony, Am still trying to get a reply posted...where are you located (or where is top?) Thanks, Paul

  10. Do you have a pic? Thanks, Paul
  11. Thanks. I used the bolt on version from Moss. Paul
  12. Iain, it’s too late for me but which r&p system doesn’t increase the turning radius? Thanks, Paul
  13. Richard didn’t mention and there is usually a nut loose behind the wheel.
  14. Am not sure about vibration, but I think everything on my 3A was put together (by me) correctly but fluid has always “misted” out of the pin hole on the lid of the reservoir. Not a lot, just enough to ruin every bit of paint it touches. The attached photo is of the reservoir lid from the TR3 (I polished and painted it) I’m now working on. Not only does it look cool, when I get things together I’m hoping it will eliminate the reservoir “mist”. Paul
