Did you repair or replace some worn out parts?
Add a new accessory?
Take it out for a drive on twisty back roads?

I typically don't start my winter maintenance until February (I wait until my father-in-law heads back to Florida after Christmas). Next up is rear dampers - got 'em, just need to put them on.

I spent 2 hours staring at the parts to my front suspension after having it powder-coated; trying to remember how it all went together. I took dozens of photos before disassembling it, but realized that it wasn't enough! I had everything marked, but sandblasting and painting tends to ruin that plan. Thank God I stamped positions into the major arm parts.

Haha I know that feeling well... if too much time has passed between taking something apart and putting it back together there's always a bit of a learning curve at first. Good idea taking photos, and the stamps!

That photo is kind of heartbreaking, Jeff winking smiley I'm gonna have to post that on the Triumph Experience Facebook album

Listers,

Today I refurbished my beep beep horns with a nice coat of medium black paint. I also installed a new lower windscreen gasket/seal.

We finished by mounting the bonnet/hood. It fits well.

Monday I will install the horns and connect the directional lights and I am getting close to the end.

A TR-3a driver.

I also discovered a problem with the Tenax

I looked and wondered how long before I can get the additional garage bay built.....and then walked back inside because it was too frigging cold.

I took it on a test drive. Got my rebuilt carbs back from Joe Curto (who did a great job) before Christmas and today was the first time I had a chance to go for a spin.

Dropped the oil pan, replaced the gasket, checked torque on some con rod end bolts, and basically froze my tush....

i was going to say something really nasty, like: "I was going to scrub my wire wheels today, but it's in the mid 80s and too hot in the sun".
But, I'm, too nice to do that.
Hope you guys get warm soon.

Took the new Optima battery out of the shipping box and looked at it.

It's red.

Like Bob, I was going to wash the TR today. It's about 71 degrees here right now, but my wife would probably kill me if I brought the car into the family room.

Discovered that the inexpensive audio amp somebody gave to me to use in The Grey Ghost required a lot of input filtering so I can use a cheap tablet as the signal source, installed a rear view mirror that should allow me to see the guy about to run into me, and installed a bracket to mount the Emerson version of a Go Pro camera (got it for $40 compared to the $300 for a Go Pro).
