  1. Thanks to a TR member the TR2 twin bonnet catches are now sorted. I am still looking for a front bonnet main spring assembly to copy if anyone can help please. Thank you. Russell
  2. Evening Colin. My first TR2 was MFH480, the reg is a Gloucester City car. I hope the TR register can help you to get it original number back? Where are you in the Country. Good luck with your project. Russell
  3. I am local to Wotton, and have seen the car, does anyone know the lucky owner. Russell
  4. Hi Dan. That sound like a possibility. I have sent you a PM, I hope!!! Please let me know if you received it. Regards Russell
  5. Thank you Roger. That does make sense. If I were in the design office at the time I would try make both sides the same to keep the costs down. Russell
  6. Hi Keith. Thats a start, thank you. So, are they handed?. Russell
  7. I have been asked to make a pair of early TR2 twin bonnet catches. The parts book gives the same number for L and R. I have been told that they are handed, are they? Now for the difficult part. Does anyone have one that I can make a copy from please. Thank you. Russell
  8. It is there. Click on the left right arrows as the lots go through, it will come up for a short time, and then it moves on to the next item. Looks VERY rough. Russell
  9. Red TR3 for sale on Ebay. Is this car known to anyone please. Russell.
  10. During the course of a recent restoration I found it difficult to find the door lock mechanism. The item is not available from the usual commercial companies. So, I decided to produce a small number from scratch. I did a CAD drawing of the individual parts, these were then 3D printed to check the detail. The small production run is made up of laser cut and die cast parts, commercially available pinch bolt, clevis pin, and fasteners. The spring is a close copy of the original sourced from a well known Bristol supplier. Please check my classified ad if you are looking for a door lock mechanism. Russell
  11. Charlie. PM sent Russell
  12. Hi Charlie. PM sent. Also thank you Tom. I am going with Don Hoods, when they can fit me in. Russell
  13. Thank you all, so far Everflex looks like the one to go for. Russell
  14. I am looking to buy a new hood from Don Hoods Birmingham. Advise would be welcome as to the best material to use, and would it be a good idea for Don Hoods to fit it to the car. Thank you. Russell
  15. I understand that the door lock mechanism, which connects the back of the door handle, with the lock mechanism, is not available from the usual suppliers. It may be that I can get this item reproduced in small numbers. In the first instance, does anyone know of an original drawing for the parts in the mechanism. Thank you. Russell
  16. Hi Mac. give me a call. 07931 977508 Russ
  17. Morning Mack. PM sent. Regards Russell
  18. Has anyone any experience with Ian Sims, Carhoods, Birmingham. In particular their fitting service. Thank you, Russell.
  19. On the same theme, I think?. On doing a complete body off restoration, the engine and gearbox, having been completed first were put to one side, the clutch operation was tested, and all was well. After well over two years, and having installed the engine/gearbox, and fitted the body, the clutch was found to be frozen solid. Even with a short length of tube, and measured force, it would not move on the lever. Having now removed the gearbox, inspection revealed that I could see a clear pattern of marks on the flywheel where the plate was stuck. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, lack of knowledge is not. I hope my experience will save someone else a days work with a good friend. Russell
  20. Advice please. I have a NOS clutch complete, but with no grease included. What grease should I use for the clutch splines, and the release collar. Thank you, Russell
  21. Hi Geoff. PM sent re engine block. Regards Russell
