    TR2/3/3A » Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    You will be setting the door gaps when you weld in the A and B posts to the new inner sill. As you line up the A and B posts you very likely will be able to correct the front 45’s alignment issue...

    I now mount the top by poking holes in it and just hook the bare holes over the studs. When all looks good, I take it off and install the dots at the holes. This way little is lost if you make a...

    +1 to the pre-load. You can avoid spreading the case by simply supporting the axles and rotating the rear opening downward when installing the pumpkin. This naturally spreads the case.

    Definitely convex...but every TR I’ve owned had signs of the mirrors being ripped out 2-3 times. They tend to get knocked a lot.

    Well...I had an XJS Jag that used to eat relays. There were at least 30 on the car. The ones from Spain tended to do just fine, at least I never replaced one of those. The no-name relays went like...

    Sounds good, except it may be easier to set the inner sills in first, then drop the body on top.

    If the deflector can move, then removing it will not decrease the stack height. I know Muncies and Saginaw from GM used no oil deflectors...but I can’t say if they help in these little British...

    Remember that over time wire colors fade and change. Reds become brown, white to yellow, etc. You will have to study each wire to tell what color it originally was.
