I just noticed the gauges. I am really liking the white dials. Now you have me rethinking my instrument cluster Smile

Oh wow! What a beautiful TR. I like the two mirrors. I will need to get an extra one for my passenger door.

Sweet looking 6. I have those wheels. They look great on your car.

Contrary to what the Bently books says, You simply cannot slide the old tensioner out. It's too wide. You have to remove the retaining pin.

Do these timing marks look odd?

Original damper is the gray one. The new one is the black one. However, the timing marks on the new one for BTDC don't jive with the old ones. I know I can always just subtract 4 from the numbers to get it to match. Just wondering why its this way.

Powder coated a lot of things prior to assembly. Now I realize the front plate needs to be stripped. If the heat exceeds 400 degrees it will melt the powder coat and potentially run into the engine. Bad planning on my side.

Maybe I am wrong so am open to hear back from others.

Impressive looking hub. Was it an easy job to install? I have to replace my trailing arm and am wondering what is involved with the hub removal. Im so tired of working on my car, I'm about to give up Frown

At first glance I thought it was a TVR Tasmin. The body panels really enhance the look and give it a much more muscular stance. Love it!

Spent all day wet sanding and buffing today. Spring is here and I can do more work.

Have you noticed any gain in power after the conversion? I am trying to get the most bang for the buck in power without radical mods.

Yes, the dash looks amazing. Have you put anything around the switch to protect from key scratches?

Love the key in the dash. What kind of wood is your dash? It's stunning. Wish I had done something like that instead.

Oh wow. Thats pretty slick looking and clean. I often though about the fuel injection system but never moved forward on any options. I have the triple Webbers but a fuel injection is low maintenance and runs so much smoother.

Thats a really nice setup. I like your filter box.

That is amazing that this was the only rust you found. What a gem Smile

This reminds me of a 74 TR6 I had where I had to patch the sills. I will post some pictures later. I took galvanized steel, cut and shaped the pieces and brazed them into place. I wonder how it has held up over the years?

Any details about the engine and transmission? Looks mean Smile
