      • Todd, you have a lift and a three car garage, plus your house garage. You really do not need to work outside in the rain under a tarp. Here is an interesting concept. Put some other cars and stuff under a tarp and work inside in the dry and closer to your tools. Try it, you might like it!

        • Uh hmmm...that’s 4 car garage plus lift

          • Home from TRials. Out to do battle with the 6. So just before TRials, I’d gotten it running fairly well, but the throttle stuck and the heater hoses leaked at the firewall. Adjusted the linkage and used different clamps...problems solved. Went to put it in gear and NOPE. Then I thought the disk might be stuck(22 years of sitting). Shut it off, in gear and hit the starter. Voila!! Drove it around the block!! I think the differential may have issues...sorta makes a rubbing sound...sorta growl? Not a whine...

            I have more diffs

            Ah well progress

              • Replaced all the front suspension bushings. What a difference.
                While I was in there I cleaned the undercoat and grime off a section of the frame. Found shiny black paint under it.

                  Power washer makes cleaning the underside easier, it the car is raised.

                  It won't take the undercoat off. It's hard to get off with a sharp putty knife.

              • More photos...notice the positive camber

                  250 valve cover stands out. & the shroud. It's taking shape. Nice hose clamps.
                  What is that wort in front of the brake master cylinder?

              • It’s actually a chromed late valve cover. Had it on my 74 TR6. The bit in front of the MC is a Harbor Freight LED magnetic light

                • We drove 2000 miles in 48 hours as part of the round britain reliability run. Fantastic event .Only issues were a broken throttle cable and worn synchro on second!

                    Works really well. Although still like the softtop in the summer.

                • Todd, we need to build you a bigger garage with a second floor, room for a lift and better organization.

                  • This weekend I worked on the front brakes & suspension. New urethane bushings, shocks, ball joints, trunnions, wheel bearings, rotors, calipers, yadda yadda yadda. Bead blasted all the removable parts and made them nice & shiny again. Had quite a fight removing the upper fulcrum but eventually got it figured out. My thread chaser would not fit into the back 2 holes so had to make a "stubby" by welding a cut-off tap to a nut.
