Original?

Recommended Posts

I have just finished removing the underseal from the underside of the floor pans on my 1968 TR5 project and was surprised to see brown paint as in the images. Does this suggest that the panels have been replaced at some time in the past?

Many thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim,

Sorry I don't know the answer, but someone will.

She looks great though, you must be well happy, and knackered after all that scraping !

Cheers,

Conrad.

Many thanks Stuart.

Conrad, the removal of the under seal was very satisfying and not too arduous. About 3 hours to do the floor pans.

Cheers,

Tim

David, this car has been hidden away in a garage since 1980 and there is very little rust on it at all.

Good luck with yours,

Tim
