Hats off!!! Documenting this build is a whole other area that deserves our accolades. If I keep on going my wife will accuse me of a man crush. Thanks again, maybe one day this car might make it to the Virginia area, I would go out of my way to see the finished product.

    Thanks, guys. Like I said, you were all a source for knowledge and inspiration as I went along. Helping each other out is the way these Triumphs keep living longer than we do!

    Hoyt, here is the thread about beading sources. It all seems to be the same stuff, basically, but I ordered mine from the UK to get the black. That way when the beading gets scratched it won't show through with the white that Moss sells.

    At the end of the project I'll post all the threads that were essential in getting me here.

    Re: Beginning the TR2 Bodywork

    Today I have officially declared the TR2 "restored". There are a handful of things to work on, but I will consider those general maintenance. Anyway, just closing out this thread with the promised body pictures...









    Hope ya'll enjoyed the ride to get here as much as I did.

    I think I'm going to start looking for an XKE in need of attention...

    Cheers!

    Simply Stunning! Congratulations.

    Just out of curiosity how much would you say you used of base coat and clear coat for the entire restoration? And dare I ask, how much was the cost for it?
