    Yes I hear you David. I have wondered about how that lid fits a few times with its press fit, but have not lost one yet. Some insurance is probably a good idea.

    TR2/3/3A Re: tr3 spare tire fit

    TR2/3/3A Re: Side screen location.

    I cannot tell by the pics David, but the side curtain looks too low. I had this really cool old tr guy show once how he did his curtains. He would mount the brackets to the curtain then get best fit...

    I think 80+ should be enough and then bend over the locking tab on the nut. There should be wiggle room before the pin contacts the worm. The final adjustment is made with the nut on the cover that...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting windshield
