1969 UK TR6 PI Paint scheme-confirmation


Recommended Posts

Hi all

My shell is ready for paint at last so I was wanting confirmation of the paint scheme to give to the painter.

Body will be 2K Royal Blue (base & clear)

Below the chrome strip and rear Satin Black

Windscreen surround Royal Blue

One thing I'm not sure about is that been such an early car should it have wing beading on the top of the rear wings/rear deck again in body colour?

Finally I've seen cars with wing mirrors on both the doors and wings I presume the drivers door is the correct position (the passenger door never had one from the factory?)

If people could confirm I'd appreciate your input.

Cheers 

Andy

PS she was Damson but the wife hates the colour so Blue it is!

no mirrors as standard on a 69 Tr6  and yes short wing beading painted same as the body . I like damson it’s a great colour.

Thanks Graham lovely original car!

I like Damson never knew they had no wing mirrors at all how do you find driving in modern traffic without them or do you have a stiff neck.

How does the trim stay in place is it simply sandwiched between the deck/wing using the tabs on the trim?

thank you yes  done only 29,000 miles from new ,  you just need to look in the rear view a bit more often , and as in your driving test check the blind spot , never been on a motorway , but they are a bit scarce here in Norfolk , the wing beads are just held in place by the tags and wing sealer . Any picture you want just drop me a note

Here is 69 TR6 with correct paint. Black satin on windscreen frame and below boot lid etc. Good Luck !

Black satin on the windscreen frame or below boot lid isn't correct for a '69. It should be body colour for windscreen and matt black for the rear. Not forgetting the black along the lower part of the sills.

Yes, this came up a year or so ago and the TR6 registrar Derek Graham supplied the Triumph document detailing the black paint spec which was used in production, it was:

ICI Matt Black air drying paint ref 062/4523 with thinners 851/222.

The matt black windscreen surround came in sometime between March & May 1969.

So many choices...

I'm taking it that originality isn't the absolute prime directive or you wouldn't change to suit Mrs PodOne. If you ever need a crowdsourced vote (there's an idea-what does the register think is the best iteration?), I'd vote: black windscreen surround (IDK why-it just looks right), black sills (it's trad and I wish my PO had done it properly), absolutely and utterly a black Kamm tail rear and remembering to matt black behind the grille.

And Mimosa Yellow bc despite my initial reservations it's really grown on me ;)

Up to me I'd keep her Damson but Yellow nah bit too bilious for my taste on any car :ph34r:
