Re: Gaydon or bust ! Part 1

Well done for getting there Paul. Ian, I'm glad you got out of your situation unscathed. I was told that you were seen on the hard shoulder of the M40 but couldn't have imagined it was quite such an awful problem. We had a misfire which has been an occasional problem for a couple of years now. It lo...

Re: Electric fan turn on / off sensor switch issue

I too changed to a Revotec sensor. But I did get around the Kenlowe drip, drip, drip for years by strapping the sensor to the outside of the top hose and adjusting the cut in/cut off point accordingly. This does work with the one side effect that after the engine has been turned off from operating t...

Re: TR7 Replacement Body Panel Project (TR Drivers Club Tooling Fund)

To keep everyone up to date, we do have a final per unit price on a full headlamp panel but it came in just a few days too late for the upcoming issue of the club magazine. I hope to have a meeting at the NEC Restoration Show next weekend whereupon we'll be in a better informed position on the best ...

Re: POWER STEERING

My TR7 has light steering so there is never a thought of an electric power steering conversion. If I were disabled in some way it would perhaps be understandable but as I often say in conversations about the steering, if your TR7 has heavy steering then there is something wrong with the steering. Pa...

Re: TR7 Replacement Body Panel Project (TR Drivers Club Tooling Fund)

We will be updating TR Drivers Club members of the full progress shortly within TR Driver. As I write we are still awaiting the price for the complete front panel but have a cost for outer skin only. Rear light cluster full panel price is in. Progress is ongoing. The Register's new 'Wedge Team' has ...

Re: TR7 Replacement Body Panel Project (TR Drivers Club Tooling Fund)

Accident damage is what will require the new panels Beans. Plenty of us have panels stored away but it only takes one little mishap and then a spare may no longer be available. These cars are in general not the rusting heaps they once had a reputation for and Robsport have the patch panels available...

Re: TR7 Replacement Body Panel Project (TR Drivers Club Tooling Fund)

Rich_K asked me in his front wing thread of the TR7 section of this forum what had gone at BMH to justify them scrapping the press tools along with a few other questions too. Whilst I don't have a definite answer to what went on at BMH (and they're not talking to anyone about it) from what I can asc...

Re: LH front wing for a TR7/8 needed, anyone selling?

I'll answer this on the relevant thread in the New Parts & Commisions Rich. But yes, it is going to be a fairly expensive undertaking but there are enough of us in the TRDC determined to make it happen.

TR7 Replacement Body Panel Project (TR Drivers Club Tooling Fund)

We haven't really gone public on the current TR Drivers Club project for rectifying the situation caused by British Motor Heritage (BMH should not be confused with BMIHT - they are separate, unrelated companies and have been for over 20 years). I was given clandestine information much earlier this y...

Re: LH front wing for a TR7/8 needed, anyone selling?

This is going to take some time Rich but while we're dealing with the nose panel and the rear light cluster panel we will be scouring the world for the oldest, original, never been on a car front wings to work as a pattern. All the end products should be better (but more expensive of course) than th...

Re: LH front wing for a TR7/8 needed, anyone selling?

Do you actually need a complete wing because the patch panels for these are fairly significant? We will be having new (better fitting) replacement wings manufactured but they will be a few panels down the line as we're targetting the headlamp panel first and then probably the rear light cluster pane...

Re: Testing the waters.....

Apparently the experts look at auction house prices to get a measure of car model value and in that regard TR7s have been doing surprisingly well in the past year or so. Good Dropheads have been fetching around £8k. But do you have a driveway or front garden where you would be able to park the car? ...

Re: Testing the waters.....

Sean, £2k suggests it's a rustbucket. If it's a good car you're looking at a starting price of around £5k now. With the vinyl wrap on it you may find you'll get more interest than without but see what happens as it may prove to be more valuable unwrapped. Triton green is a lovely colour so it may cl...
