This past winter the car spent lots of time on
jack stands having assorted work done. The least expensive thing was removing all the
lights, taking them apart and cleaning the reflectors and the lenses. It's amazing how
much dirt can accumulate in them over the years. Everything is so much brighter now. The
big $$$$ event was treating myself to re-chromed bumpers. From a distance the old ones
didn't look too bad, but up close you could see that most of the shiny stuff was long
gone. It took about 6 weeks to get them back but the results were quite good.
As you can see I've decided to forego the big
black bumperettes in favor of the early TR6 look. There's one other improvement here that
you can see............ new Hella H4 halogen headlights.
Opening up the engine compartment reveals a new
radiator shroud from Good Parts, a Triumph
specialty shop in Pennsylvania. It's all aluminum and comes ready to drop in place.
Assembly consists of a few screws with no drilling required. I had considered an ABS
shroud but liked the look of this better and the price was only about $10 more.
