The following pages detail the restoration of our client's '72 TR6.  The engine has been pulled for rebuilding and we have started the de-trimming process. 

These seats will be going back to the stock material after we check the structure for soundness.

Above we see damage caused when a door brake fails.

The undercarriage is quiet sound.  Here we see just a bit of surface corrosion. 

Above we see why the front halves of British car frames usually don't rust....they are liberally coated in oil.

A few perforations in the battery box area that we will attend to.

A close-up of the pervious area.  We will weld new metal in here and then install a plastic battery tray so this doesn't happen again.

In prepping the trunk for new paint we found that the factory seam sealer had lost its adhesion and needed to be removed entirely in order to do a proper job.

During the manufacturing process sheet steel panels are spot welded together.  This is all fine but since spot welds are used rather than welding a solid bead there are tiny gaps between the two panels that could let in water.  This is were the seam sealer comes in.  Think of it like caulking on a window sill.  It fills the gaps and keeps moisture out.
