Wedge List / TR7/8 Interior Panels for Sale
« Last post by "WILLIAM SMITH" on January 30, 2019, 06:24:23 PM »
Good friends of mine who sold their 1979 TR7 convertible before the husband

died have a set of tan (plain, not plaid) interior trim panels for sale.

There are three pieces, two door panels plus the rear panel.  I believe they

are new originals and never used.  Asking price is  $300.



Anyone who is interested, contact Dot Reed by e-mail at dsreed67@aol.com .

I have no financial interest  -- just helping a long-time friend.

Great suggestionb&.B  It was -9F this morning so I put the damper outside for

the day.



Just put the speedi sleeve on and it went right into place.







My sleeve btoolb was deep enough. In fact, too deep. I had to move the

sleeve up a bit after the install.B  Having the damper cold made that

achievable.







Thanks for the advice.

Hi Randy







Just fitted a Speedi Sleeve to my damper, stuck the damper in the freezer for

a couple of days to shrink it down a tiny amount, drove real easy. You will

need a piece of pipe or similar to knock down to the wear on the shaft as the

SKF installation tool is not deep enough.







Cheers John

Mike I do mine myself but if youbre not that way motivated, any auto

upholsterer will do it for you if itbs just the leather that needs

replacing.

Cheers

I was looking into the same option (recovering) about 5 years ago. I

couldnbt find anywhere that would do it in the US. I canbt remember where,

but a place in the UK would do it but with shipping both ways it was a lot

more expensive than buying the new one from the Wedge Shop. I decided to buy

the one the Wedge Shop sells and agree it is a great option. However, I kinda

like the feel of the smaller wheel. Most I have spoken with like the larger

one, though.



Regards,



Terry

Yes, I purchased and installed the larger (14b) one on my 1980 TR7 Spider

and it looks just like the original.  However, an unexpected advantage is

the increased view of the upper dash gauge area through the larger steering

wheel opening.   It bolts perfectly in place and looks fantastic.
