It has been in 4 different garages and I finally put some DTM primer on it this fall. Something else always seems to get priority.

Hello Boxofparts

Welcome to the forum.
Life has a way of holding up things up.
That looks great. The finish line is not too far off now. You will find the Triumph section is very active so you will be sure to get plenty of tips and help as you finish up the TR3.
What year is it?

Hope all the bits made all the moves over the years. I find it hard enough to keep up with parts over the weekend.

Keep the photos coming as you progress.

David

Body is 1960, front is a small mouth like my dad had back in the early 60s. 20 some years ago I welded the whole mess back together. I will need to go back thru my pre digital photos and post the mess I started with. I probably wont get back into it for another year as I am in the middle of building a garage on my retirement home in northern Michigan. I was really happy to put some DTM primer on it this fall so I could take it out of long term dry storage.

This is how it looked after many years of storage. This will be its 5th home but the garage comes first.
