TR3 rear lower closing panel.


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the clarification. I just wanted to make sure I put it back together correctly!

I believe the car was repaired in the late 1960's or early 1970's, most probably just to keep it on the road, so not much care was taken.

I have similar where the rear quarter panel meets with the inner wing. Rather than an overlap of the two panel flanges spot welded together, a repaired quarter panel section was welded straight to the inner wing!

Another question if I may? I have 4 tags that hold the wiring loom in place across the rear of the boot floor and 1 near the offside wheel arch. Should I have any more in the boot area?

Thanks. Ed

Progress has been slow as I have other classics I am working on. Rear and o/s quarter panel now welded in place. I must have had the wings on and of at least a dozen times making adjustments and every time different issues accurred, but they fit quite well now (I mean at the moment). The front of both sills also neaded minor work behind the front wings. I have just been stripping a second hand front wing I bought, its quite interesting revealing the colours, on top of the undercoat its red, then yellow and finally light blue before it was sprayed in grey undercoat.

Never seen that bulge where a loudspeaker can be mounted in the footwell side panel. Mine just had a hole. Was that a later mod

I was wondering the same.

But mine doesn't even have a hole. (1959 3A)

Although if it did it would just be another place for the water to get in.

And what's the little round blob just to the top right of the speaker bulge?

I too have not seen the mod before.  Has it got a matching one on the lhs?

Thread drift……Jack French fitted a Woolworths pie dish on Simplicity’s  bulkhead side to give more accelerator pedal space.

Doors removed and stripped, however they are different. One has a wood frame the other metal. I assume the wood framed door is from an earlier car.

Handle mount on the skin looks different.  Flat on wood frame door and raised on all steel.

Hi Phil

The doors are from different production periods.

Wooden pre TS60000 (ish) body pressing changes, all steel post that change. Hence the raised plinths for the door handle, (also found on bonnets,boots, front and rear scuttles on later cars.)

I had a wood framed door that had a raised plinth for the door handle so I think earlier than 60000. Presumably early 3a`s had the wood framed doors with handles, and also some late 3`s.

Both outer skins are the same, with raised handle mounts. The only difference is that the studs on the wooden frame door screw in but on the metal frame door they have a nut at the back.
