    TR2/3/3A » Re: Carpet and upholstery installation

    +1 on John’s excellent tutorial. Like him, I went with John Skinner. Prices were actually cheaper for what you get from the big three over here, at least last year. I also sprung for the thin...

    I need to resurrect this thread... is there a definitive answer on how to cope with the right angle drive jutting out past where the transmission cover fits? Looks like this previous thread came up a...

    But to be fair to Graham, yes- in the American vernacular, it means to plug something electrical in and see if it goes “poof”.

    Thanks all. Body color it is!

    All, should the rear fender stays be body color or black? I’m making a run to my powder coater on Friday and can include them if needed. The TRA judging guide is silent on color... only a deduction...

    FYI to all, there is an Amco Vista grille on eBY right now. They don’t come up too often (I think I got the last one a year or two back at least) and will need to be rechromed. Neither is cheap!

    The engine in my TR3A is currently out of the car, albeit with the gearbox attached, while the body is at the paint shop. The rear seal is still original, so it weeps.

    Weird! Auction must have closed, but I’m certain I saw it a couple of times last week. Try the closed auction section to see if the guy just gave up.
