Started on the restoration today, some 39 years after theTR7 was officially introduced. And as ever with such a job it starts with stripping all parts of the car so only the bare shell remains. I really wanted to avoid this, but using the original body will give the best result.
Sadly I won't be able to work more than one or two days a week on the car for the next month or. So it was decided to do this in a friends garage across the border in neighbouring Belgium. Otherwise Robbie's workshop would be occupied far too long, and he has a few projects going that need finishing.
And today was the day. I travelled to Belgium this afternoon for a few hours of spannering. The original target was stripping the boot area ...
But as that went rather smoothly I also stripped all parts of both doors and surrounding areas.
