Hello all. I've owned British cars for over 50 years starting with a pair of 1960 Envoy Specials (Saloon and Estate). Next came 67 Austin 1100 4 door, an Austin Healey Sprite and then my first Triumph, a 66 TR4Airs. Although I've owned a few other British autos, (GT6, MGB, Mini 1000, Jaguar 3.8S Type, and three other TR4As) I still have "parts" of my original TR4A incorporated into my current, long term project, a 67 TR4A solid axle. Hoping to have it back on the road spring 2023. My words of advice... Don't wait 35 years to reassemble a car that has been stripped to bare metal. Cheers.

And in my case, don't wait more than 24 hours before reassembling *anything*!

Welcome to BCF. Post some photos when you get a chance.

welcome, as someone who is 10 years into a 2 year project I completely understand your advice.

Don't feel bad, started my 58 MK1 project in 1999, body totally stripped of everything but paint. Been buying parts, but got sidetracked by a 64 Valiant (4 yrs), now to maintenance on good cars, finishing house. Glad I took pictures, hopefully to start again this winter, fortunately not bare metal but has POR-15 on rusty places to prevent spread. Good luck on the TR.
