  • GT6 Frame

    This car is 5 years older than my TR6, but the frame took way less work to get it in shape.

      Thanks for the detailed coverage, Ed. Nice that the frame repair went so well.
      Probably your experience gained on the TR6 made it more familiar to deal with.

      To seal a can of POR15 so that it can be reopened, use a sheet of Glad Cling-Wrap, or equivalent, between the top and the can.

        Great fun to follow your progress Ed. I hope you never run out of old British iron to restore.
        Thanks for such a thorough job of documentation!

          Thanks, Guys.

          Walt--I do use that trick, and it works pretty well, especially if I clean the sealing surfaces on the can and the lid. If the contents had much exposure to humid air, the contents can gel up in the can. I think that's why they recommend not using it directly from the can, but transferring smaller amounts to another container. I wouldn't put up with these hassles if I didn't think it worked.

            Looks good Ed. Quite a bit different than a 6 frame, eh?

            Cheers,

              Yup--more differences than similarities. Quite a bit lighter, too. Can't be too much over 100 pounds.
