Parts and Mia Culpas



Parts are on their way!!! Len Drake from Drake’s Motors in Kelowna, BC (http://www.drakesbritishmotors.com/) got right on it after he received my email last week. A few emails over the afternoon and we had a good list and a good price. Len even deciphered the part numbers for everything I had earmarked for TRF and put together the Moss equivalent.

The parts coming (should be here Wednesday) are as follows:

6 CLIP BAFFLE SEAL
1 SEAL FRONT BAFFLE PLATE
1 BAFFLE PLATE R/H
1 ROCKER PANEL END CAP L/F
1 ROCKER PANEL END CAP L/R
1 ROCKER PANEL END CAP R/F
1 ROCKER PANEL END CAP R/R
1 SILL PANEL OUTER R/H
1 SILL PANEL OUTER L/H
1 BAFFLE PLATE L/H
2 KIT FT WING MTG
2 KIT REAR WING MTG
1 SEAL GRILLE TO HOOD
1 RACK BOOT KIT
1 TRUNNION ASSY LOWER R/H
1 TRUNNION ASSY LOWER L/H
1 BALL JOINT UPPER Pair
1 MAJOR FT SUSP KIT
4 WASHER RUBBER
2 MOUNTING RUBBER STEER RACK
1 TIE ROD END SET
1 BUSH KIT POLY TRAIL ARM
2 BUSHING LOWER CONTROL ARM
1 BUSH SWAY BAR MOUNT URETHANE
2 U-BOLT SWAY BAR MOUNT
2 BRACKET SWAY BAR
1 MOUNT STEERING RACK SOLID
1 REAR SHOCK CONVERSION
1 74-76 FRONT RIGHT FENDER
2 FRONT SHOCK OBSORBERS


This should be enough to keep me going for a few weekends at least.

This is not all I’m going to need but it’s all I could afford – hello Ichiban noodles.

My future in-laws stopped in at Mike’s to drop off a cheque for me and take some pics of the motor. The motor was still at the machine shop and it seems no amount of harassment would convince Mike’s to disclose the location of the machine shop.

Being that my groomsmen were all here in Calgary for the kilt fitting there was no progress on the little car. There was however two nights and one afternoon of copious drinking that left wives, girlfriends and one fiancée a little put out. It could be a cold February for all involved.

I have to also apologize to my brother Neal and his wife Michelle. No one should have to come home from the movies to find their hot tub B&E’d by three large drunk and naked men. That might have been a little offside.

Stay tuned…

PS: still in the market for a job and a MIG welder (in that order I’m told).

  1. extended sympathy to Neal and Michelle.But seriously-you should expect some collateral damage as a hot tub owner.
    That's a big list, but somewhere in the world there's a happy TR6 parts guy.
    rock on man
