Dear TRF Customer-

I had an email this week from a customer who was having a problem with his fuel gauge.  He had checked his sending unit and his gauge, but his gauge was not reading full when he knew his tank was full.  Someone had suggested his problem was probably with his voltage stabilizer and he had bought one, but he wasn’t sure where it went on his TR6.  I suppose it would have been easy enough to explain it in words, but we had a used speedo gauge in the office that still had the stabilizer attached to the back of it.  I snapped a picture and emailed it to him.  Within 15 minutes, he emailed me back, “A picture is worth a thousand words”.  It will not be so easy for him to pull the dash out to its “service” position to replace it, but it’s nice to have the tool of digital pictures to help customers with their problems.

Another customer, David Appleby, emailed me some pictures of his TR3A from “Drive your Triumph Day”.  David had sent me some “before” and “getting there” pictures a few weeks ago of his project.  I’ll ask Karen to post his pictures as photos of the week. Stuart Diekmeyer and Larry Miceli posted photos of their cars on our Facebook page for “Drive your Triumph Day”.

As you can see, David doesn’t have the windscreen on his car yet.  He mentioned to me that he has an aluminum windscreen frame on his car, which was fitted to some cars originally.  He was looking for the special Tenax studs that were used with the aluminum type frame and he sent me a picture of one of his old ones.  Of course we have just what he was looking for and I sent him a link to the listing in the TR3 Glove Box catalog.  I was kind of surprised other suppliers don’t bother with this part and only supply the type for the chrome plated windshield frames.  The balls on the studs that they do have don’t look particularly round either.  It seems like it would be pretty easy to ruin your aluminum frame by using the wrong studs with the short threads.  If you need the correct studs for your aluminum windscreen, here’s a link to Charles’ listing: http://trf.zeni.net/TR2-TR3GB/267.php

We are wrapping up a busy week filling orders from the “Featured Model” listings.  We also had a nice shipment in from the UK with a lot of trim items customers ordered in December.  I think we’ll have another shipment in about two weeks which should complete all the orders from the sale.  Please take a look at the current sales at the top of the page if you get a chance.  I hope you have a nice weekend.

best,
Albert
TRF
