Found a window sticker for a TR8 VIN TPVDV8AT211430.

The dealer info is torn off.

Anybody on the list currently own this car?

I can mail it to you.

Wedge List / Engine Bay Painting Over TPA
« Last post by "Gary Klein" on December 20, 2017, 10:52:27 AM »

I recall several discussions over the years of members mentioning that they

painted their engine bay, and I recall some stating that they "sealed" the

factory TPA paint before doing so.  Can I get some advice as to what you did

and the "sealant" you guys used?

Hi all,

After many years of enjoying my FI Wedge, it fell into disrepair, and I would like to offer it for free to anyone.  

I also have a hard top in excellent condition that I will sell. Make me an offer.

The fuel pump quit, and that's what took it off the road and I was just too busy to take care of it at the time.  Replace that and there's little reason the engine won't run.

Beyond that, the tires, brakes, battery and exhaust are bad.

It's got various rust. The trans sometimes pops out of first gear. The clutch was fairly new when it stopped running.

The interior is a moldy mess.

Before it went down, I had replaced all bushings with poly and new Gaz shocks. The shocks thus have few miles on them.

So I invite all to adopt it for parts or to fix and drive. I'd rather not have to junk it.  You'll need to tow it or arrange for transport.

Included is a box of spare parts.

The hardtop is in good shape -- make me an offer!  I wouldn't have a clue how to ship that.

I am in Northern Virginia, near Washington, DC.

I'll be happy to send photos.

I replaced the starter on my 8 with a hi torque unit from the Wedge Shop and

did not remove or disconnect anything but the starter bolts and associated

wires.  The car has hedders

Jim Altman,B  Sorry for being late to the party, but here goes.B  I
took my starter out without moving or removing the exhaust.B  The
exhaust is stock, and the starter is stock, not sure about a gear
reduction starter.B
Here was the trick, I flipped the starter end for end in place, and
thenB you can positionB bump whereB there is room for it and itB falls
out.B  Hope this helps,B  Bob BurtonB B  1981 DHC EFI
