    These are a few detail pics of the Frame Refurbishment and Trunk/Boot Clean-up portions of the project.

    Believe me, this was not done overnight.

      Every thing looks really well done, Walt and if you do have to sell Sapphire, I hope you'll get top dollar.

      Thanks, Ken.

    No, obviously not. Nice work!

    • Spending the day at home sick, my wife sent me to bed with a hot cup of Theraflu. Naturally, as soon as I heard her leave for the grocery store I ran downstairs to work on the TR6.

      Installed a LED light strip in the glovebox. This was my second attempt and it looks like it will work just fine. You can find these 12v LED strips on Amazon for about a buck a piece (when bought in bulk). The strips are very flexible and have a self adhesive back for easy mounting. The color temperature is very 'cold' but not as purple as the pic suggests.

      I might add these to the footwells, trunk, etc.

      • Yesterday the wife and i took the TR6 out to look at a '56 Renault as a potential new project car. It turns out the guy selling it has previously fixed and sold 3 TR6s, so we had a fun chat about Triumphs and other projects we've done. The car was a lot more than i want to take on, so no new project, but a beautiful day for a drive.

            Wow, I’ve got a toolbox looks just like that one. My grandfather gave it to me years ago!

        • Nice progress, but I'm getting a taste for that beer, mister.

            • I'm not saying this is the only thing that needed doing, but replacing this is the only thing I did to the TR6 today..that and went for a fill up.

              • I became real familiar with Dan Masters Electrical book for TR6.

                Removed the drivers seat to get access to remove the tachometer to get access to the hazard signal flasher wiring.
                You have to pull a couple wires to diagnose where the turn signals do & don't have power, they are not working. Dan's flow charts tell me the turn signal flasher is faulty.

                While I was under the dash, Dan's temperature gauge flow chart told me that the temperature sender is faulty.

                Before closing the book, Dan's flow chart for the Horns told me that the horn relay is faulty.

                Triumph Electrical Maintenance Handbook, along with Bentley's electrical color codes and electrical chapter, gave me the information to figure out seemingly impossible problems.
                They ae both essentials to this hobby.

                    • Today the Lady got new wires, coil, cap & rotor...simple tune up stuff.
                      Tomorrow, grease wheel bearings, scuff the pads, bleed the brakes & we're done and ready for the dragon!

                          That may be true, but you’ll drink just about anything.

                          Good deal.....You gonna cut the grass and trim the hedges before you leave, Jim ?
                          That's what I'll be working on next week

                          How'd you know that, Ken? Actually, the hedges at the pool are good, but I've got three bushes out front that are out of control. With rain most every day for the last couple of weeks, our drought is over and the grass is green again and growing like crazy.

                          Need to take care of that, cause we have the National Night Out block party in front of my house as soon as I get back.

                      what did you do to your car today?
