Pat e-mailed me with an idea to put up pictures featuring a series of up close shots of various cars. The intent here is to provide various references and experiences so as to enable those restoring these type of cars to do a better and more "correct" job. What a great idea!

NB. - A couple of items in the these photos are incorrect if one is concerned with being 100% authentic. Most admirers would not notice the faults but they would lose points in a concourse competition. Anyone who is seeking to produce a "concourse" quality restoration should purchase Bill Piggot's "Original Triumph TR2/3/3A" book for reference.
