  1. If anyone has an old/spare diff bulge they want to get rid of.....please give me a shout. Have been asked on a few occasions if I make them for this diff floor and at the mo I don’t. However, if I can get one to copy, I may well start.

    Did have to use a grinder on one part......never again!! Took an age and plenty of discs!!

    Fortunately at work we have a piece of kit called a wire eroder, works on the principles of spark erosion but uses a brass wire as an electrode and will happily cut up to 150mm. Sometimes going to work can be fun

    The secret is to support both sides of the steel as you form it. I had my sheet steel sandwiched in between the 2 28mm formers in an enormous vice.
  5. Anybody want issues 288-302 of the TR Action magazine before I bin them? I’m going to Stoneleigh next weekend so can bring them along.
  6. Just thought I’d share. Halfords are selling a pair of 2 ton axle stands for £13 or £8 if you have a trade card

    Thanks guys. I had a 28mm thick metal former wired out of an old mound tool back plate. Think I have a pic somewhere.....will try and dig it out.
  9. Have been scouring around for a new pair of front inner arch reinforcements for the 6. Now it appears BMH still make these, but now they only come attached to the complete inner arch assembly Chuffing expensive!! Sooooooo

    Until I view them, I’m not sure what’s on them. I’m sort of guessing it may be the same as the Moss/Rimmer’s book exploded diagrams, in which case it will be a waste of time. But, if there is other stuff if interest, I was just going to take a digital photo and save it in the laptop. Time will tell.

    Picked up some BL TR6 microfiche slides last year but had no way of viewing them. Tried everything I had here including a usb microscope but to no avail. Yesterday however, I was given a microfiche reader Will soon be scooting through the slides, so will be interesting to see what’s on them.

    Chassis dimension drawing

    All sorted now guys.
  14. Does anyone have a TR6 chassis dimension drawing on file that they could email me? I’m hoping to print it out on A3 for easy reference. Thanks
  15. Thanks John, was out of desperation as my resto had stalled without a good floor and I am fortunate enough to work in an environment with a tool room, some heavy pressing kit and some like minded people. I did find somewhere doing an aluminium replacement but it was mega bucks ( near on £500! ) and I wasn’t sure how it would attach to the rest of the car.
