  1. Hood up is really is the best mode for pelting sun (Oahu, Hawaii). Those Bimini top things are cute, but way less effective than the standard one-window TR2 hood. The ventilation is excellent, and I kind of like “hiding” a bit inside the cockpit as I cruise, rather than fully exposed in top down mode. If I go top down, I like tonneau with aero screens! Dan
  2. Well, my niece on her 18th birfthday still finds a way to flash some style with a mask and a shaka sign! cheers Dan
  3. Great looking car! I think the black is beautiful, but of course now you get to choose! What is the conventional wisdom about how certain colors highlight certain body lines? My Doretti is now white and I think the lines do get washed out a bit with that color. Congrats on getting the car. Lot 200 looks like an excellent find! cheers Dan
  4. beautiful car and picture! Dan
  5. So in order to remove my transmission, I had to take the floor pans out, and then the transmission tunnel. It sure left the car looking like a shell! Cheers Dan
  6. I think this item is a TR2 grab handle rather than the fatter TR3 version. If correct, you may want to look at this for your TR2 as the early grab handles are very scarce. Cheers Dan https://www.ebay.com/itm/Triumph-TR2-3a-Grab-Handle/224044140992?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D9765fcc2052d479891e63b46cc50e733%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D324197142662%26itm%3D224044140992%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DTriumph&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A2fb82259-aec8-11ea-aa26-74dbd18067c8|parentrq%3Ab66daccb1720aaa30a58a572fff87eb6|iid%3A1
  7. Ha, another DOT5 convert! Can’t we all just agree on it?? cheers Dan
  8. I think the item dates from February 1960, based on the "12V 2 60" stamping. Cheers Dan
  9. Hi Don! Happy Birthday and thanks for all your posts! Dan
  10. My 55 bird with the sweet-singing-burbling V8:
  11. Looks like a car being used how it should! You would think they would show thorough pictures of the car and current pictures of the retrim if they want to get six figures? I spoke with this guy about the Doretti trademark many years ago, and it all sounded very expensive and obscure. I think he also claimed to have a bunch of Doretti spares a la the Monkspath hoard! Cheers Dan
  12. Continuing the garden theme on the slopes of Diamond Head:
  13. Yes Hawaii it is. Pretty good TR community here, and when I get stuck on a car project I head to the sea!
