I am currently knee deep in my 4th Triumph car restoration. 2 previous 3a's
and a TR4. I also did my 74 T140V about 6 years ago but I must add that a
bike is much easier than a car.
THe current project is a TR4 and although my first TR4 was not as extensive as
this project I am optimistic about its outcome.
As in the past, I will try to keep everything "stock" as possible, with only
upgrades to wiring etc.
It has worked in the past and with this list as an limitless resource of
technical information and the availability of parts both on ebay and the
numerous retailers I carry on!
I do expect many bumps in the road, but I continue to make progress.
I expect the 4 to be complete in about 1.5 to 2 more years at the current rate
I wish you well in your project and remember this list contains the knowledge
of many generations of LBC owners.
