While I was cleaning the windscreen washer bottle bracket on a '55 TR2 I'm
restoring at the shop, to my surprise it was painted blue. This is a very
original car - two owners and virtually no aftermarket DPO antics so I'm
guessing that the bracket is somewhat period correct yet I'm puzzled as to
why it isn't black or CAD.
I leafed through the usual references like Bill Piggott's books for some
photo help but came up empty.
The bracket is not made from heavy wire....it's made from flat band steel
much like later TR's. The best way to describe the color blue is that it's
somewhere between robin's egg blue and medium blue.
Has anyone with a TR2 or TR3 come across washer bottle brackets like
this...especially in colors!
The original color of the car is white (I think pearl but can't recall as I
write this)....TS 63xx
