  2. Cold ram air intake (poor mans version)

    After noticing a power drop-off after the car had been running awhile & watching the temp. gauge gradually creep up. I looked into a cold air intake system for my TR3A. But could find nothing that was customized & had an enclosed duel carb. airbox.

    So I did the next best thing:

    I made a simple & inexpensive air intake modification.

  3. Claying your car, before you polish

    I only thought my car was clean.

    I have never used clay before. Really didn't even know it was out there until a friend told me about it recently.

  5. TR3A convertible top install

    I'm going to try and give a detailed account, here:

    I had been postponing this job for over a year.
    Primarily because there was no complete professional instructions I could find, in one place.

    This top is a Robbins everflex sold by TRF. It was a previous return item so I got it for about $200.00 over a year ago.

    Installation is really a pretty simple job & I had installed a tonneau of the same material a while back.
