  1. Convertibles not only safer but more adaptable. Stake Out or search for Vampires ! Either way not a bad day to do either... spring is on its way
  2. OUH 874M Not the usual first run out Followed this GT6 on a trailer on the M40 near Beaconsfield. So is it..... New purchase trailering home 😀 Out of winter storage🥶 or Saving fuel🙄 If it was you, let us know what you're up to.
  3. Had a run over to Bledlow Ridge yesterday to check out the suspension and brakes after rebuild. Pleased to say all running and stopping well !
  4. I have just been renewing my breakdown cover and speaking to the RAC who I have been with for 33 years. The cover I have is Personal Cover -Personal Family cover. Roadside At Home Recovery Onward Travel. This covers up to 3 members of a family at the same address as a driver or passenger in any vehicle. I had been reading through their cover restrictions and could not find anything regarding age of vehicle so as life's too short specifically asked if there was any age restrictions with this cover and both companies confirmed no. Obviously depends on a number of
  5. Rob, Similar experience, blocked fuel line ( didn't know that at the time though) called requesting transporter. In Suffolk needed to get back to Buckinghamshire. After 2 hours on a slip road of a major duel carriageway and a long chat with the boys in blue a RAC transit or similar turned up. Towed of to a retail park and told we'll need a transporter ...thought so.... long story short, having had to arrange my own recovery as the RAC didn't have any vehicles in the area.. 13 hours to get home after making the call. However they did offer me 10% discount on renewal.😖
  6. Just did a quote on line...need to call as the car has a few basic modifications. Thanks Phil
  7. Thanks all. I see Footman James advertise in The Courier...Is this associated with Peter James or just coincidence. Phil.
  8. I have had cover with RAC since 1987 but having haggled the last few years an finding the premium is creeping up. I had a chat with one of the Classic car insurers recently that offer breakdown cover as part of the package but I have a multi car policy not due for renewal until October. I need cover for 4 cars including the Triumph ( 3 Drivers) and wonder if anyone has any recommendations / comparisons re RAC, Green Flag etc and experiences when on the continent in their Triumph....You can but hope. Thank Phil.
  9. With too much time on my hands at the moment I thought I'd see if I could fill in the blanks regarding my car's history with your help. The car is a TR6 registration EKV481L, Red ( paint code 17) with black interior. Registered November 1972 Missing History 1972 to 1983 and 1989 - 1993 The car was sold by a Mr Slater of Old Catton Norwich in August 1983 with a milage of 10,300 to a Mr M Band of Great Yarmouth. Mr Band sold the car in July 1989 with a mileage of 25,629 to someone in the Poole area. The car was in Poole between 1989 and 1993 a
  10. Hi Paul, The wheel fitted on the car looks like a TR6 but the grip itself looks a little thin, could be the photo also I cant see a join in the leather at the bottom of the rim. The second one looks more like a TR6 but the spokes have been painted. The centres both look like aftermath replacements. Attached a few pictures of the wheel taken of my 1972 TR6. Hope that helps. I have a wooden Moto-Lita on at the moment but looking to have the leather replaced on the original wheel if anyone has recommendations.
  11. Hi Paul, Thanks for the info. I hadn't been back to the thread for a while but have completed the job using Dinitrol RC900 rust converter and ML cavity wax. I used Aerosols for convenience and found with the extension hose nozzle attachment that I could locate the internal obstructions. They also provide tapered plastic plugs which are very convenient when additional access holes are required ( 10mm drill bit required). Regards Phil
  12. I'm in the process of doing some rust prevention on the chassis and will be using injecting Dinitro RC900 rust converter into the box sections of the chassis followed by ML cavity wax. While I could poke around with a wire coat hanger to establish where the internal dividers are. Is there a diagram showing the different box sections of the chassis. Thanks Phil.
  13. By coincidence I have today received from Classic CAR LED's LED bulbs for the gauges in my TR6, ordered them at 2pm yesterday, get service. I have used different bulbs to illuminate the gauges and coloured bulbs for the main beam etc: GLB504 T10 LED Capless Wedge Bulbs Classic Car Gauge Dashboard Various Colours × 3 BA9S GREEN 56 LUMEN 8 SMD LED SIDELIGHT GAUGE BULB 989 × 4 but it all depends on the loom fittings. The capless bulbs can be a littel tight. I called Duncan at Classic Car Led's to confirm before ordering, very helpful and knowledgeable. I had
  14. In respect of unconverted heads, whats the panels opinion on the use of additives. Always use the good stuff but have had different advice in respect of lead replacement additives. Phil
