    TR2/3/3A Re: Door fitting- graduate level

    I agree with David. I am still in the pre-paint stage and have put on and taken off the doors well over a dozen times. One thing that I have noticed is that there is a very small bit of variance in...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Door fitting- graduate level

    Jim,
    One other option is to try readjusting the front fender. You only need a very small movement of the fender to allow the door to clear. The movement would likely be to try to pull the fender...

    TR4/4A Re: Door reassembly

    Mike,

  8. TR2/3/3A Re: What vehicle is this Lucas voltage stabilizer from?

    I just looked at the two suspected parts. First the TR4 voltage stabilizer has three contacts labeled I, B and ground.
    The TR3 overdrive relay has four contacts that are labeled C1, C2, W1 and W2....
  9. TR2/3/3A Re: What vehicle is this Lucas voltage stabilizer from?

    Your photo is blurry as to trying to read anything on the bottom of the unit. Maybe you could let us know what the identifiers are for each of the contacts on the bottom.

    TR2/3/3A Re: door capping with buttons

    When cutting...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wheel Box "Bushing" ???

    I rely on THE ROADSTER FACTORY the-roadster-factory.com for the best quality. However even they occasionally sell some bad parts. But they do stand behind what they sell.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wheel Box "Bushing" ???

    I have never seen pieces of these parts available. You might want to consider looking for a good used wheel box. Then you can either use that or take parts off it to repair yours.

    Or they may have been like me and kept it thinking that some day they might have use for a big spacer about that size. I have two of them sitting in my shop.

    I used Dynamat as a sound deadener and heat barrier. It has a foil finish on the up side and a tar like substance on the lower side. That substance is like an adhesive. So it is cut to shape and...
