    I tried it as a "detail wipe down" at a recent car show.
    I had driven perhaps 50 miles to get to the park & had a lot of bug splats to show for it.
    I had ordered
    "Meguiar's G3626 Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere Spray - 26 oz." from Amazon for about $10.00 and put it in the boot; promptly forgetting about it.

    When I pulled my chair out......there ...
  2. 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.
    I guess a lot of the ...

  3. single key chromed hardware replacements

    all five locks on my car needed a different key:
    doors: different one each
    (universal question: why bother having locking doors on a TR3?)

    When I was tightening down a wobbly door handle, I broke a stud.
    That got the ball rolling. started looking closely at all the hardware and didn't like the pitting & rather dull chrome.
    Moss offers a set that are all keyed the same. ($175.00). That was the catalyst. ...

    I noticed some some increased vibrations from the bonnet.
    on closer inspection I found two of the studs had wallowed out of their holes & left the car.

    after consulting the forum, it seemed my best option was just to replace the hinges, rather than try and repair.

    TRF had theirs on sale for $33.00 & they seemed of good quality.
    though approx. the same weight as the old ones, they are not made of the same ferrous ...
  5. Seat springs

    1960 Tr3A. Original seat springs.
    these springs consist of 3 parts:

    top frame: very good condition,
    flat spring steel, the double perimeter coil springs are afixed to the top frame with clamp on clips.

    springs : good condition
    all the springs are interwoven together.
    the inner coils are single springs, while the outer ones are double.
    (several of the bottom connectors have rusted thru or are no longer connected, but did not effect comfort ...
