1958 TR3 Engine-Bay Restoration

Today we delivered a new engine-bay restoration which will be at the 9th Annual Restoration Fair & Swap Meet held by the OECC tomorrow.

This particular job took 100 hours, which included a strip to bare metal, etching, epoxy primer, careful seam-sealing and a polyurethane top-coat.

Everything was taken out and refurbished back into the bay. This included rebuilding the wiper motor, pedal box, ignition wires and master cylinders as well as looking over the carburetors and distributors.

Original bolts were cadmium plated as well as the fuel lines and brake lines. To help with long-distance touring we used new Zebra hose clamps where required. Almost all the speciality items such as the new battery leads, engine breather cap and all rubber came from the Roadster factory.

TR6 Complete: Part III

Finally we can present the entire Pimento Red TR6 painted in Dupont’s Imron Polyurethane Enamel that has a completely durable and classic look.

Featured are Vredestein’s popular Sprint Classic tires, Wheels powder coated by Professional Components Ltd, correct lenses from The Roadster Factory, an Everflex Softtop by Robbins, bumpers by Victoria Plating Ltd and a windsheild + install by Capital Glass just down the road.

Triumph TR6 Complete

Just got the Pimento Red TR6 out of storage for the final few pieces.

At the owner’s request we are assembling a book with every detail of the car.

Attached are some snaps under the hood from earlier today. Many of the new bits, well almost all of them, came from the roadster factory including the oem-style bottles, battery leads and ignition wires.
