  1. Paul, Graham and Tim, Thanks all, for your replies. Youre confirming what I thought that it belongs to some extraneous accessory. When I acquired the car it had a graphic equaliser sitting in the glovebox and I'm wondering if it started life mounted under the pedal box frame - what an odd place though. Anyway the offending bracket wont be included in the rebuild, so thanks again all. Independent views help a lot! Dave

  3. Hi All, The ongoing work on the TR5 led to the removal of the pedal box today. Thought Id removed all the bolts and wondered why it wouldnt move, until I notice two tiny almost flat bolt heads, (same colour as the paint work) on the upper side of the bulk head which were securing a bracket on the underside of the pedal box. See attached photos - it looks like a mounting bracket for a radio, but is slightly too small and what an awful position..! I cant find this part in any of the manuals/diagrams so am pretty sure its surplus to requirements but would appreciate confirmation (or
  4. Hi Alan, thanks for the reply. As per Bob above, painting is the first priorty, then maybe I will look at a tray. Regards Dave
  5. Hi Waldi/Andy thanks for the advice, I'll proceed as you suggest other than the 2k aerosol - I think my preference is cellulose. Not sure a 2k aerosol will be the same but general a 2k finish looks slightly heavier to me - less in keeping with the age and other paintwork maybe? Cheers Dave
  6. Hi Sean, thanks for the guidance. Will add the surface primer and then probably use cellulose as you suggest - I think the finish is more in keeping with the age/existing paintwork etc. Having had a closer look at the edges, the masking is ok too. Cheers Dave
  7. Hi Bob, thanks for the tip. I'll have a look round and cgive it some thought. First priority is to repaint the tray. All the best Dave
  8. Good afternoon all, Im just about to repaint the battery tray on my signal red TR5 and looking for guidance please. All surface rust has been removed and treated with jenolite, followed by Bondarust primer. Now I need to follow through with either aerosol or brush applied colour and I have a few questions. 1) The hazards around 2k are putting me off using it in favour of cellulose, which I have previous experience years ago of using via a gun - is this a sensible way to go? 2) Brush or aerosol? The area (engine is in situ) is not conducive to easily using an aerosol but brush pa
  9. Stuart, thanks, great clear advice. All the best, Dave.
  10. Morning all, I'm just about to apply seam sealer on the front bulkhead seams behind the dash following a complete strip out, heater refurb etc. Would be interested in recommendations for either gun applied sealer (Tigerseal....?) or brush applied, taking note of the pros/cons above. Also, showing my ignorance here, is the sealer applied on top of primer (Bondarust) or to the bare metal, then primed? Im guessing the former but wanted to check - sorry, probably a naive question. Thanks Dave
  11. Hi Roger Thanks for your help and confirmation, all back together now. Starting to head in the right direction at last. Dave
  12. Morning all, looking forward to a gorgeous Sunday morning in the garage here! I little advice need please....just re-assembling the heater I dismantled recently - a good clean, flush and new foam, but I now have a 50/50 chance of locating the heat exchanger the correct way round. Does the long connector mate with the top or bottom hole in the side plate? Omitted to take the photo prior to dismantling Im afraid. Also, when it was removed from the car, one of the three grommet style rubber mounts was missing. Are these available anywhere? Moss catalogue states not available. Than
  13. Hi Roger, just opened a can of worms. Whilst I can log into the forum, I am not abale to sign into the main site. Have been in touch with the office and they are mystified so are getting a technical person to take a look. I wonder if they have their own forum to resolve tricky IT challenges ........?
  14. Life gets ever more complicated Waldi.....but forums like this are fabulous for learning and knowledge sharing. Just out of interest are the technical articles from TR Action indexed anywhere on here? I vaguely recall a few years ago there was an intent by the Club to do this, but cant find it. Maybe Im wrong.
