Hello all...   I am now the proud owner of 1954 Triumph  TR2  Commision # 
TS 805 LO.

I plan to restore the car  mechanically and visually in such a way as to 
maintain it's wonderful old  vintage patina....
Does anyone have an original TR2 Valve cover (and  cap)  that, 
preferably, doesn't need to be re-chromed?
First, congratulations on acquiring such a wonderful, rare car!  Second, this 
early a car would've had a black-painted valve cover, not  chrome as the 
later cars did (supposedly from engine number TS18230). The  early oil cap is 
different as well.
What sort of restoration is required, and what of the "wonderful old  vintage 
patina" will you be able to preserve?

Triumph Herald engine with   wings.
