Hi all hope your 4th holiday is going great. We have our grandson for 4 days and having a ball. A lot of play, BUT he wanted to go to the garage and see HIS car. So we took him down and got a photo of us looking at the motor, thought I would share. This is why I now play/work on this car. Nothing better than a great reason to do this crazy hobby. Thanks for letting me share. We wish you all a blessed and safe 4th.

Friends, My 66 TR back from a 13 year sleep. I'm a patient soul... and just couldn't let her go. The Ex wife sure... but not the 4A. Worth the wait as it rolls again in reasonable condition. I will post more later of the engine & my 69 TR6. Cheers!

That sure looks good! Has to be the dry air it appears to be in.

I had a '67 TR4A that looks identical but for dark blue paint.

I'm in the process of building a 1/25 scale model of mine from a resin cast body. It's been fun researching the one I had, but I have to rely on my memory but for a few photos I took. I only had it 2 years.

Beautiful car Stewart. Did you restore it or has it been sitting in that condition for 13-years? What have you done to it?

Hi Brian, Yeah the car sat for a while with too much life on my plate. Never stopped working on it entirely, but it was a slow project. Did fresh paint, chrome replating, NOS bits and pieces gathered over the years. Strong engine to start, but now w/ rebuilt SUs by the guru back east, JOE Curdo. With a lot of will, the help of my brother/others & a fair amount $$$, she rolls again. I do have an A type overdrive that will go back in soon, which transforms the car & I am shopping new tires, non-tube type. I also need to lower the car a lot, but thank you for your kind words.

Stewart,

Could you tell me about the paint ... that's the stage I'm nearing on my restoration. Yours looks great!

Thanks.

Brian

Stewart....Nice car...I agree with the lowering...looks to be sitting rather high.

I had the car painted here in California where it's all water based paint now with clear coat. It turned out pretty good with no orange peal effect. The final stage of clear coat smooths the finish out nicely. This was done about 6 years ago and has sat in a nice warm garage Where it cured. I pulled the car out and waxed with McGuires Carnuba at least 1/2 dozen times. The original color was taken from inside the door where there was no light, than had it darkened a tad with more black. I wanted to get closer to Jaguar racing green which is a darker shade of BRG.

The car will be coming down at least 2 inches all around, if not more. Mounting new tires is first on the list. My brother will help since he has raced his factory production TR6 and knows the tricks to making these cars sit & handle just right. I'll be happy to share once completed.

Thanks Stewart.

Must be the black that makes it pop ... very nice shade of BRG.

Stewart, nice color...does your paint guy have the formula mix he used? If so, please share. I'm going with BRG on Angus and I find the Triumph original greens to be too light for my liking.

Cheers, Dave
