bowtie6 Back Together

Labour day has come and gone.  bowtie6 is back together.  Yeah!

We spent pretty much all day yesterday fitting body panels.  This is a challenge.  TR6’s don’t quite “fit” very well even with a perfectly plumb frame.  So we had to do quite a bit of fitment, shims and spacers to make things line up.  Suffice to say, after a long day yesterday all fenders are finally bolted on, the bonnet lined up quite well and the boot lid is in place.  Quite a day.

Sorry, no pictures but I promise a full set the next time I get to work on bowtie6.

On a side note, today’s post marks a bit of a milestone:  this is the 50th post since I started this blog.  I’ve been able to track hits via Google Analytics and so far, I have a pretty much global audience.

Just for the hell of it, if you happen to be reading this post – please, make a quick entry and just say where you are reading my blog from.  Just curious…

Pictures will be posted soon…

      No, this is not an original Triumph colour. The original colour was Pimento Red. However Pimento Red was just not red enough. I wanted something really bright, that would make a statement. After a lot of work, I found that Chrysler Viper Red is as pure red as you can get. You can read more about this by clicking HERE (Paint write-up from my old website).

      On a clear day, with the right kind of light and the right kind of wax bowtie6 will make your eyes hurt.
