  1. I've started on a full body off restoration of a (currently LHD) 1973 TR6. The body is pretty good with the two major areas being the passenger's front floor and driver's A post inner panel from top to bottom. Otherwise all seems very good haveing benefited from a (very poor using galvanised sheets pop-rivited with filler!) restoration years ago. Sills and doors and most other sections sound. Door fit is 100% on passenger's side and only a slight deviation on driver's side so could be a slight chassis problem (chassis could be iffy in T shirt places). I thus hope to only be welding in parts of panels / bodywork, not major sections. I want to use a rollover jig and plan to brace the body internally across doors and into boot area the usual way via welding up an angle iron frame bolted to key fixings such as seat belt anchorage points. As rollover jigs seem to just bolt to the bumber fixings I do wonder if this fixing method is strong enough for the TR6. Has anyone any experience of this method? I may make up my own rollover jig via engine stands or buy a low cost universal jig. My main and obvious concern is to keep the shell rigid whilst on the jig and whilst welding in panels (plus all other preparation) as I do not want to introduce warped bodywork just because the jig is not strong enough. Further thought. Why do you not see secondhand jigs for sale from previous TR6 restorers?
