Dear TRF Customer-

We’ve all been busy at TRF this week.  Last week was a little chaotic with the computers down and a large shipment from England that arrived later than expected, so there were a lot of loose ends to clean up this week.  The Tomato Harvest sale also reached its expiration date this morning and people tend to wait until the last minute on these sales, so we should be busy again today filling last minute orders from that.  We can take a rest this weekend, and the weather looks like it will be nice here in Armagh.

I have some pictures Craig Snyder sent me of his TR6, which he has customised in a number of neat ways.  It’s an interesting contrast to the 1976 British Racing Green TR6 that Charles had restored to original condition several years ago.  I’ll quote some of Craig’s email below.

Here she is…I wanted something to use and enjoy with my personality (my own style).  I stored the bumperettes on the shelf in favor of an NOS 1976 front bumper under the tripod headlights... to which I filled in the bumperette install holes, and I re-chromed the rear center bumper bar for use without the bumperettes.  I put a touch of yellow brake paint on the calipers and drums to peek through my 16 X7 Konig rewinds  (with 205X65X16 Contis) and matched the color with the laurels on the front wings.  I livened up the “BRG” a bit by spraying Eastwood’s Euro Racing Green in single stage urethane over primer layers that include a 2k epoxy.  The new carpet’s underlayment (including the original tranny tunnel) consists of heat shield sound and temp barrier, covered with TRF’s Jute (and of course all new TRF interior)... Kind of crazy to think that I am back in a TR.  My first car as a new driver in the 70s and using TRF parts in the late 70s, and back in the seat again now.
Craig

Craig also mentioned that his air conditioning kit came from Nostalgic Air if anyone is interested.  Thanks to Craig for sending in his pictures.

Some of you may remember from a previous email a customer who has some TR3 parts he’s looking to move on.  I think there was some interest in the bonnet, so it may be gone, but he also sent me a picture of the other odds and ends he has.  You can take a look here. If you are interested, reply to this email and I’ll put you in touch with him.

I had another email from someone with parts in his garage, this time a 1973 TR6 Transmission (non o/d).  If anyone is interested in more details on it, I can put you in touch with the owner.  I believe he is in northern Virginia.

I hope you have a great weekend.
