Herb,



I had stencils cut for the "Canadian" stripes and the V8 motif on the

bonnet, but I used reproduction decals for all the standard TR8 decals.



Absolutely the .dwg files can be used to make decals or stencils.



Cheers

Bill

Bill,



Do you have a supplier for the decals based on your drawings?



Or, could your .dwg files be taken to a decal production company?



Thanks,



Herb

I have all of the TR8 decals drawn up in a .dwg format including the

Laurel Wreath with 3.5 or 3.9 LITRE. I will take a look tonight to see

if I can make up a 6.2. The strobed lines would probably be too fine to

use a mask, but maybe you can find someone to silkscreen a decal set...



Cheers

Anybody know where I can get an emblem kit made up that has 6.2L in the emblem

instead of 3.5.  Ibve seen ones with 4.0 and 4.6, so somebody must be able

to scan these things and change the number.

Dave,



you mention some good ideas.  I think that there definitely need to be some

"must still have" items and other (safety and wear parts) that are "don't

care" or a bonus if they are NOT antique (indicating that the car is actually

being used for more than shows).



I was talking about this thread with somebody last night.  We talked about

paint. What happens when there are repairs requiring a panel to be repainted?

That seemed OK to us.  What if an entire side  of the car needed repainting?

What if over many years the whole car got painted at some time or another? How

can you tell for sure?  Is it good enough if all the paint "looks pretty old".

How old a repaint is old enough to avoid being a "restoration"



I think any answers to the paint question are likely to be applicable to other

areas of the car.



BTW, I think the whole original interior is a "must have".



I REALLY like the idea of a "survivor" class. In our club in Philly (DVT), we

have a "Diamond in the Rough" class.  It was a general class.  All models were

lumped together.  The rougher the car, and still street legal and passing

state inspection, the more likely it would be to win.   A car obviously brush

painted everywhere with Rustoleum would likely do well.



I always wanted it to be more of a "diamond" than a "rough" judgement.  Like a

"survivor class"

Hi

Does anyone have a TR8 Stromberg Carb Inlet Manifold lying around that

they could take a couple of pictures of, and possibly a couple of

measurements?

Regards

Alan

The only downside I can think off for oil filter magnets is if used with

a canister oil filter, all the particles and "any larger pieces" will

get trapped inside the canister and you won't see them unless you split

the canister open, and thus you may not be altered to a developing

situation. Of course used on a TR7 metal housing if you clean it out at

an oil change you are likely to spot anything.

Great idea.  No need to reinvent the wheel either.



Google "oil filter magnet" images and the variety of solutions will both

delight and entertain.





Cheers
