History of upgrades and Major Repairs

1975 White

Like most used TR6, this one has a long history of fixes and modification.

Here is a list of what I can determine was done prior to my purchase in 1993

Paint and Body:

bulletOriginal color was #84 Topaz Yellow (like a county dump truck)
bulletAt some point it was painted British racing green
bulletThen its current shade of white which is a non-standard color.  The decals on the rear fenders we reversed at that time.  It looks like it was painted with a spray can
bulletOverspray from both jobs is evident on the car.  I have spent several years cleaning up the mess that the painter made.
bulletRight front was involved in a fender bender at some point the right front wing is new and underlying sheet metal still shows minor damage.
bulletRust above the rear wheels was repaired with about 20 pounds of bondo as were the rear corners of the left and right rear wings.
