Looks good. If you haven't already, search Amazon for chrome bumper bolts, they are plenty of different sizes available to fill those holes.

Finally scored a good hard top for my TR6 project - takeoff from a wreck that was for sale. I've already got a parts car, so I convinced the guy to sell me just the top. All the bits and pieces are there - chrome trim in good shape. The glass is all fine - no significant dents - just needs a restoration - rubber trims and new headliner. And paint of course.

Second pic is just resting on the parts car - new home until I get ready for this part.

Really happy with it. Been hunting for a while.

Best,
Braxton

Looking good!

The hardtop transforms the car into a grand tourer.

I agree. I love the way the TR6 looks with the hardtop. I am from Myrtle Beach and I believe I saw that hardtop on a car on NC Craigslist at a very reasonable price and was surprised someone wasn't buying the car, just for the hardtop. Good score.

What color do you plan on painting your newly found hardtop? A couple pictures of mine.

Car was on CraigsList - up in SW Virginia. Almost bought the whole thing - would have if it had OD. Wrecked in front - not too bad - car a little far gone for a reasonable restoration. But a good parts car. It’s still available I think - good guy.

My 6 is Carmine or close after a PO respray. Think I’m going with blue for the restoration - again Sapphire or close - that was the color of my first Triumph so many years ago - 72 Spit in high school and college. Maybe a little darker and a little less purple - with tan interior. Hardtop will be body color. It will be a while before I get to that point. But I’ll post some progress pics along the way.

Thanks for the comments.
Best,
Braxton

I scored an incredible deal when I got mine. A fellow had a car for parts but really wasn't worth it. I offered him what I had in my pocket and he bit. It has a wee tiny tear that can be easily fixed and a two inch section of headliner that has to be re-glued. All prices there as well. It is in original white as I think they all came like that. My car will be a Jag burgundy, Regency Red, and I may leave the top white for contrast. Or go body colour. They really do change the look of the car and easily removed. Who else has pics of their "chaste" non-topless cars?

My wife and I attended the Cape Cod British Car Club's 'Freezin' Run for Fun'
yesterday. It included a 50 mile drive followed by lunch and a silent auction
to raise money for a local womens shelter. We raised some $1600 for them
and had a great time in the process.
