    I am helping friends resurrect a 1950 TD after more than 40 years rotting away.
    I have a box of rusty, bent bits that I am trying to find which bits are actually TD.
    Are these pieces TD and if so, what and where.

    Andy on a TR6 it is mounted under the bonnet, nearside inner wing, near the bulkhead.

    There was a thread about the shell to splash apron gap on this or the other board a few years ago. The position of the mounting tabs/wings on the core, as well as the core position on the mounting bracket can be changed if the rad was re-cored. Gap on the right side of my TD wider as well. Car still looks beautiful and no on would have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out! George

    Hi all, I recently bought a Midget and would like to insure it so that my kids and close friends can use it occasionally in Summer. Trouble is the children are 18, 20 and 25. All have full licences, no claims or convictions, very sensible etc but trying to get them on cover as named drivers bumps on line limited mileage 'classic' quotes from under £100 (me and Mrs) to circa £1000. I'm only anticip...

    It will be interesting to se if the offer to re-unite this with the original car is taken up. For the asking price I doubt it.

  • Gord Clark17 February 2020

    Many thanks LaVerne, for the advice. Will probably use an antifreeze recommended for an alloy engine.

    When I replaced my slats with some form Abingdon Spares I also found I had one stud that was loose.
    It came off just undoing the nut. SO I reattached it with JB Weld. So far it has held OK.
    This is a picture of the stud location and the fit.If it helps.

    Side of the centre console?

    Without fail, any time a wheel comes off, that wheel goes under the sill of the car. There is no possible way to ever be "too safe".

  • Steve Simmons17 February 2020

    Bob, I understand and appreciate your viewpoint. In my own view however, modifying a car is different from restoring one. Someone looking for a performance car, especially a brand new one like your example of Kimber's KN, isn't going to care as much about originality. But fast forward 80 years and imagine you were buying that very KN. Now imagine it has a replacement blower unit on it, install...
