upgraded to DOT 5 and refurbished brake booster, pedal box, clutch master & slave, stainless clutch line, goodrich stainless brake lines, TRW slotted and drilled front rotors. Seems to feel better on the road, but....maybe only in my mind justifying the cost! But the work is satisfying and cheaper than therapy.

Looks good, thought about switching to Dot 5 but stayed with original fluid.

Good job, lots of work and rewarding finish.
Now we go stop, lets get the go.

Sunday (4/16/18) drive in 70 degree weather, no dash, no gauges other than oil pressure, no interior other than drivers seat, rear lights on for brakes. Next step paint. Original color was maple brown, then red to the current rough green. Thinking red again, thoughts?

I personally like to keep things as they were manufactured but it is your car and you need to make it something you will enjoy for years to come. If you go to shows do you want to blend in with the other red and green TRs or maybe be a little different with the maple color. Just my 2 cents.
Enjoy the Ride

Paint color choice is such an individual thing. Do what you want.

That said, while I love my Carmine red TR6, there are lots of red TR6s. I personally love the Mallard as it is fairly rare and is sharp. Also, I love red interior and that does not work with red paint. Just my 2cents.

thanks for the thought, just so hard to "like" a brown car! Will be a semi-daily driver around town and mountain canyon runs. Had a Jasmine 69 and a signal red 69 and a white 73 in the 70's and 80's. Reliving my youth!

My vote on colour would be for the jasmine or one of the other yellows. Some thing different. the mallard is nice. But you are the one driving it
