Busy weekend but i did manage to get a couple of hours on the Ratco frame. Front suspension finished, steering box and new tie rod ends. Started putting the top half of the motor back together - Head/cam/lifters/pushrods/rockers/timing chain and cover/fan. Looking good so far, no major F-ups that i know of, haha.

73 TR 6 but same issue for all..my car came with operable trunk lock but no keys..looked on line and best to come up with is $60.00 for used lock with a key..

Took lock off my car, went to a local locksmith shop; 1 week(he had to order special blanks), 2 new keys, $7.00

Yep, all I did was replace the bulbs. I got them from https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/ which sells a kit for the TR6 in various colors. You can customize the kit if you need different than stock bulbs. I needed wedge type bulbs since I have replaced the wiring harness and that's what was used for the 52mm gauges.

Also the bulbs for High Beam, Trafficator, and Oil Pressure are visible in daylight now.

Gotta love it, December 1, temp was upper 60's, fixed the bonnet latch with a new one, fixed the bonnet pull cable, went for a drive; December 2 2017 the temp was 65F, I of course dropped head and went for a drive; Today, 66F, guess run some more errands in the TR250 ... snow predicted for tomorrow |+|
