    Not ready for the tub yet, but when picking up epoxy primer for my chassis my supplier also said epoxy prime first, then filler and then epoxy prime. Sort of a sandwich approach. Make sense? ...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Upholstery ?!

    Thanks John. I will call Jonathon for samples. I think the tan would look nice with Signal Red. My understanding is they were not using wool for carpets by the time of my TR3b. I have to check...

    Nice job on the steering wheels John. I assume you did have to do some freehand sanding on the grip bumps on the backside. My understanding is my adjustable wheel has even more grip bumps. Any...

    Looks good JP. We are at very similar stages of front suspension disassembly. I'm now starting to clean parts. I haven't found degreasers to work all that well. Maybe I need to let things soak...

    Thanks guys for the response. I'm probably going to go with a blast cabinet for now. I'm not too confident my compressor (33 gal, 6.8 cfm at 40 psi, or 5.1 at 90 psi) would do well with a...

    Re: Small Victories.....for Mac

    Hi guys,
    You recently mentioned sand (media) blasters. If I were to spend $100-150 would a blasting cabinet or pressurized blaster or a simple siphon blaster work best. The reviews are typically...
  18. TR2/3/3A Re: New TRF Girling 9" brake drums compared to orginal
