Thread: First milestone in the TR4A restoration

    First milestone in the TR4A restoration

    I just pulled the body off the frame. I replaced the floors and rockers with the body in place, to be sure everything stayed in alignment. But somehow, it just didn't seem like I was making progress; there was no dramatic, immediately visible change. Now there is.







    I made the cart so I could access both the underside and topside easily. I'm glad that I got a set of good casters; I can move it around effortlessly.
    The chassis is now in the garage; I've removed the engine and transmission. The main job now is cleaning off a half-century of crud.

    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. John Lennon
