Happy New Year to all!

I am embarking on the refurbishment of my TR3A sidescreens and would appreciate detail photographs of a completed example and also any good advice and tips from someone who has been brave enough to have completed this job already!

Thanks in anticipation

Step No. 1:

What sidescreens do you have to refurbish? Are you talking the clear plastic, the rubber seals, the frame ...?

(There are originals, and later replacements from the 1970s and '80s.)

Try a BCF search on "sidescreens", and give us a picture of the ones you're working on.

Then we'll move on to Step No. 2!

Just realized this was your first BCF post.

Welcome to the forum! Best place in the 'net world, and best source of Triumph info!

Peter,
The screens in the link are mine and they are aftermarke AMCO's not the originals.
maybe someone herehas doen the stock screens but they would be quite a bit more work with a higher level of skill Involved.

...would appreciate detail photographs of a completed example...

Here's a couple of pics of completed curtains. These were rebuilt on behalf of The Roadster Factory (a US vendor) in the mid-80s. They claimed they are 'as original'.

I only did 2 over-all photos, let me know if there is a specific area that more detail would help.
