Surely dust does not find its way through those lovely covers Andrew?

Just made these with my new found skills ...! 

Not triumph but transferable to any seat and intend trimming my car completely

Back from the paint finishers, screen this weekend but did not go according to plan, had the glass fitted nicely and should have left well alone.

Had a gearbox/clutch workshop with two friends about our new project: a DIY hydraulic clutch release bearing for TR4A-TR6 for small money.

We are on a very good way, I'm thinking about a thread about that if there is any interest.

Bit of patching and panel making on Sat.

The drivers side bulkhead panel had rot and a crack and needed a patch right along its length so the original filler panel from the wheel arch was toast so I remade out of 18 gauge thicker than the original which was thinned by rust. Plan to do the other side after fixing the whole and replacing the battery tray just can't yet decide where to cut its mainly the rear seam and bottom that is really thin.

I’ll be polishing the old paintwork to try to get it as shiny as the new paintwork :-)

Hi Steve,

it takes guts to switch that machine on and push in on your bonnet:)

I agree, be very careful on the curves. Polishing machines can go through paint really quickly on a sharp convex curve, don't ask me how I know.

Note it’s colour coordinated, even the pad is Red!

that machine is actually Amita’s grp polishing machine, so yes care is needed but it’s very light and controlable.

ps, car looking very shiny, in the garage hiding from the rain !

Solved an intermittent fault on one of my TVRs, a V8 with fuel injection.

Took me centuries to find that a new temperature sensor was the culprit…...

And to finish off I cleaned and sealed the old but serviceable vinyl hood with Renovo.
