peddle box blanking plate

Recommended Posts

Hello again chaps, i wonder if any one can help with a picture of a post TS-6000 peddle box blanking plate, my car is a TS-76000, and the peddle box blanking plate on mine was just a flat off-cut of steel cobbled together by a previous owner, i know that they differ between models with the pressing. and yes i know i could buy one but as i can move steel i thought i would give it a go.

I did not think that the later (60000+) cars had the blanking plate ?

from what i have noticed on many cars It would seem that some have both sides cut out and some cars have just one side cut out depending on if they are RHD or LHD, mine had both cut on the production line i assume that it was done just in case the factory changed the market it was intended for, though please do correct me if i am wrong before needlessly make a new panel.

You're quite correct RoyM.  All the sidescreen TR's I ever came across had both sides cut out so that the steering could be installed for whichever

Country the car's were destined.

You will find a lot of post 60k and a seemingly larger proportion of L/hand drive cars only have the cut outs on one side only.

And some pre 60k LHD cars too .e.g my 58023L.

Hi stuart ~

Could that be because of the TR3B production run?

Tom.

No nothing to do with that as they came much later.

my post 60K TR3a was LHD and only had the cut out on the LHS.  When I converted it, I had to cut the apertures on the RHS and weld in the captive nuts that hold the pedal box..

Ah well , some 30 something years ago, just to be different from everybody else, I converted my rhd 3A to lhd. Lucky for me it had the lh blanking plate in place. TS 613** if you're interested

To join the party. VHP529 was an export spec Nov 57 TR3a, taken from the production line on Nov 5 th and  converted to Rhd  by the competitions department. Back on the road and being used for testing on 12 Nov, with a very different specification. TS23***. VHP has both cut outs.

Coo look, a Dolomite Sprint expansion tank I think.  Unless you know differently...

That is precisely where I wanted to fix mine, but it ended up on the inner wing opposite the distributor, next to the relocated coil.

Great contributions fellas thanks for all the feedback, i will make the blank plate rather than weld up the holes, hopefully it will look ok but you never know, i will pop a picture on this link when done. Roy.

Why not try to find a second hand one, The TR shop would probably have them, they have quite a large stock of S/H panels etc.

They are around like Bob says, TR Bitz or TR Trader may also be a source.
