Hi Lee,

Great to hear you have found some bits and pieces. I know we briefly caught up before a long long time ago. The 6 is alive a very well and in rude health! I have owned her now for 33 years! It has always been a high quality car as you probably know. Its had some changes and is more while its old engine seemed an unusually revvy and quick one its had some tweaks over time. You would still recognise her though!  

Be good to email eachother

Cheers,

Craig

Great looking TR, Craig.

They look like the Racelite (Magnesium wheels) ?

Good choice of wing mirror too !

 

 

Cheers.

Thank-you very much, I appreciate that. And yes they are the Racelites. It has had the original steels on - as you can see in the Rimmer Brochure. (A photographer approached a few of us one International and we went round have the cars photos taken and I got some nice original prints sent). I personally like the look of the steel wheels, but wanted wider tyres so then it had some Minilitee style ones. Then I got the opportunity at getting some good value wider Racelites and because I had still not quite grown up went for it. Overall I have wanted to keep the look of the 6, but just thought the mirrors set the slightly-more-purposeful-look off better and especially being black against the Topaz yellow. You can't really tell because the ground slopes at all angles, but the car is lower all round and has a slight nose-down stance and it has a slightly deeper bib spoiler.

The mirrors, wheels and spoiler do look well.  Here is my creation.

Superb Craig. So pleased you still have the car.  I did many a TR tour inc Paris with the club in my courting years. I loved that car. 
 

It only had a Hard top from factory. I bought it wearing 215/60 rubber, unusually large for 5.5” wheels. 
 

Are those Racelites 7”?  
 

I had 7” wolfies on it which I still have.
