  1. Seems like a current Italia owner with a straight (but not numbers-matching) car could donate itself to this vehicle, and then make one high-end example and one mongrel with the repaired body and replacement chassis/mill. Is that kosher? Or would it be better to restore this by itself? Dan PS. A convertible is fine, but the roofline of the Italia is one of the prettiest parts of the car!

  3. Over here in the US, an outfit called Victoria British was an interesting alternative to Moss and Roadster Factory. They have now been bought out by Moss. Is Moss USA part of Moss UK? I wonder if the gradual consolidation of suppliers will hurt or help! Dan
  4. Is this helpful? https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-Tr2-Lockheed-Rear-Axle-Cover-/224232751326?ul_ref=https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?type=2&campid=5335897961&toolid=10001&customid=224232751326&ext=224232751326&item=224232751326&srcrot=710-53481-19255-0&rvr_id=2688389459944&rvr_ts=d39cbb5f1750ad38df85ab09fd344134&_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1&ul_noapp=true&pageci=26624131-7a9d-45ae-be7d-9d47dd50fd54
  5. Well, not really an autopilot switch... I have been trying to develop the same familiarity with the switch gear that I have developed with the TR2. But it is made tricky by the swapped location of the starter button and the choke, as well as the centralised location of the overdrive switch. The Doretti dash is delightfully full of switches and whatnot, so it has been a fun exercise but still a thoughtful one for each selection! Over 40 years with the 2 has made it automatic, and hopefully less with the Doretti! Cheers Dan
  6. I think there were early and late types. This is a set of tatty original sidescreens from 1041, probably the early version. Ken might weigh in. I’m willing to measure but I’m a bit of a hack and slow too. cheers Dan
  7. Add one more (me!). And I know some folks here in the US doing early long-door restos, so I bet I could connect up some other buyers! Cheers Dan
  8. Here is the seldom-seen TR2/3 binder for them. Have never seen the TR2-specific binder mentioned in the Jan 1954 service information bulletin. Dan
  9. Thanks Rod - this is the one from Nov 1954 that is missing from my set, and also not in the set you sent either. That is what prompted me to wonder what other ones might be floating around that I missed. Any thoughts? Dan
  10. Love driving through a quiet campus on a Sunday morning! Cheers Dan
  11. Does anyone know of a source for a complete set of the TR2/3 service information bulletins? I thought I had them all, having printed out the pdfs copies assembled by Teri Ann Wakeman in her useful website (http://www.tr3a.info/Service_sheets.htm). Then, lo and behold, I saw an ebay item offered that included a Nov. 1954 bulletin pertaining to Al-Fin Drums, which is a pet fancy of mine as I have a set on both my TR2 and the Doretti. That one was not listed on the Wakeman website. I did not get the ebay item, and it prompted me to wonder if I could find a reproduction of that one, or any oth
  12. Thanks for the links and tips on sourcing the posts! Cheers Dan
