Installed RG trailing arm brackets so I can adjust camber. My first time removing trailing arms; time consuming but not rocket science. All 12 TA studs cooperated fully.

I am finally beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. I'm not sure how this site works but I'm trying to respond to "Toot" who posted a question regarding a bluetooth radio. I have purchased one and have it installed in my glovebox. Don't ask me how to set it up, I called my 35 year-old son to come home, program or whatever you have to do and I can now link to it with little effort. When I was mapping out my project, I knew I wanted something more up to date than the original radio, which was long since gone. I took my dash support to my local welding shop and had them fill in the aluminum hole from the radio. I then covered the dash support with leather. It offers a clean look. The radio I chose is a two channel design, because I only put two speakers, in the kidney pads. Here is link to the "radio" I am using.

Thank you for your very helpful response. My 37 year old son is an electrical engineer by training and would be a great resource for me, but is 700 miles away. Your unit is perfect for what I need, but a little pricey. Might get a JBL Bluetooth speaker and call it a day... $100. Need vintage British Leyland radio to fill hole...

Maybe this ( if you just want material bluetoothed from your phone, or something else from Parts Express. Or, just install a <$100 Bluetooth automotive stereo in the glove box. There are lots available under $100. Note that in either case, the existing radio (if exists) would not be used.

I installed this radio ( in my 1970 TR-6 and it fits well in the existing space with a faceplate that duplicates the original radio! Has bluetooth as well as a USB connector that I use to connect to my playlist on my flash drive. Great product and provides four channel output for speakers mounted behind the seats.

Not on my TR6 but for it. With limited work space in my garage I built a table that will fit over the rolling tub ( still on old frame ) so I can prep new frame for media and finish. Will have center 4' covered with plywood.

Hi everybody, first post to this topic. I picked up a TR6 from the desert wilds of Arizona and sure enough the desert mice had eaten some wiring but, worst of all, ate through the oil line to the gauge. So I want to ask here,hoping someone has experience, what's the best way to get at the gauge to get the new line attached? (And the old line off) Do you ,can you,pull the wood dash panel out far enough to get at it? Or what? Thanks in advance!

Doug, bit of a fiddle but you can get to the back of the oil gauge through the ash tray aperture.
Use a ss braided line from Ted at TS Imported Automotive and position the supplied shrink wrap where any wires could be worn by the braid. With Ted’s kit you don’t need the leather washer per original.
Or, if those rodents have damaged wiring at the back of the dash you may as well pull it, but you will remove the speedo and rev counter first and maybe a clip at the back of the headlamp switch.

I had to replace my oil line this last year due to age deterioration. You can get to the back of the oil gauge thru the ash tray, but I also had to take the glove box out in order to position the line. It does take patience lining up the fine threads on the line. Good luck.

Thanks, Eric and Cosby. Luckily da mice got to the wiring and oil line in the engine bay. Wiring was relatively easy to fix. Going at the oil line today so I can get her going! cool smiley

Finally got my Radiator re-cored in a bid to get the engine to run a little cooler.
Just waiting on the Cylinder Head which is being reworked including a 0.030" skim.
