    1960 TR3A front brake dust covers

    Any chance i could get someone to post a picture of the front brake dust covers installed? I have one side on, but something just doesnt look right to me, and i have been trying to find a good picture on the internet, especially of the slotted tab on the bottom that im assuming goes under the bolt head to the vertical link...any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Cody - just to make sure, are you referring to part #75 in this diagram?

    Yes, number 75 on the diagram there...i got it figured out i believe thanks to the pics and Tush’s video.....im doing a frame off on my dads tr3 that my mom used to drive around pregnant with me in 43 years ago lol...its a bit of a learning curve...Tush’s videos have got me thru a few rough spots let me tell ya! I really appreciate the quick replys. New exhaust is going in next week as well as parking break and break lines than onto some body work and paint...im sure i will have alot more questions. Once again thank you for the help!
