MY 69 TR6 CC27413L( Prod date Jan 1st , 1969) came with a painted valve
cover, but I replaced it with a chrome one from a 68 TR250. Who will know. So
judging from the date maybe TR 6's before Jan 1st, 1969 had chrome ones?
69 in the works. Well still coming apart for a frame off. At lest I've got
all the parts except for a few frame pieces. Looking forward to warm weather,
to get to work.

The rocker cover became painted along with quite a few other changes for the
1970 model range, from CP/CC50001 (along with the wheel change and
windscreen painting). The production figures state that CC26000s were built
in late '68 and had chrome rocker covers. Someone somewhere with a late
model six with a nice shiny valve cover ?
