Hi Guys,

Just starting out on my TR250 restoration if anyone wants to follow along. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions along the way!



Cheers

Hi Tush,
I will watch with interest your restoration work having recently purchased a TR 250 myself.
My intention is to make it into a TR 5 replica.
I know the cylinder heads are different so I'm not too sure which way to go to increase performance yet.
I love that Royal Blue colour , mine is a dark Green but I will change the colour to Royal Blue with Red leather Interior.
The problem I have at the moment is that the Australian customs have suddenly enforced strict rules on importing cars into Australia which potentially contain asbestos , so the car at the moment is on hold at CFR Rinkens in Paramount CA.
Any how , looking forward to your videos.
All the best,
Ian

Yes!! another TR250 in the making. You've started out with a very good example Pied. I started my restoration when I was in my late 40's and it took 2 years but it's been a great car ever since. That was 20 years ago and my car had been in a barn for 11 years before I found it. Lots of great experience on this forum. Take a ton of pictures. Love the Royal Blue but I'm biased I think. Have fun!!

Tush,
You are moving along. I see that you left the doors on (to keep body from shifting). I made door opening braces for mine. One end bolts to the B post where the door hatch is and other end to the upper door hinge bolt pattern. Also makes for a good lifting point. Can send you pictures if interested.

Hi Marv,

I was probably getting a little lazy so I left the doors on instead. I have the bars that I used for my TR6 kicking around and will install them if need be when I am shifting the body. The bolt to the A and B pillars using stock locations as well and are easily attached/ removed.

Here's a quick pic of it installed on my TR6.



Cheers

That will work. Made mine out of 2" sq tubing with plates welded on each end. Overkill but I had materials on hand. Worked out good for using to lift with them. Have a rust free 4a to do next but its good enough I am not doing frame off on it. Your frame looked pretty good in poctures.
