This is a photo log of the restoration of one of my Triumph1800 Roadsters That I am selling.
This car can sport a 350 Chevy small block engine, 4 speed transmission.
I removed all 6 coats of paint using aircraft paint stripper. Only the front fenders are steel, the rest of the body is soft aluminum.
Prepping the items that need to be re-chromed. This was no small task, the grill, all handles, window trim, lights, hinges, all had to be disassembled down to single parts. The dickie seats alone took me four hours each to disassemble and stamp. I decided to chrome a few parts that were not originally chromed, for example: the dickie seat slide bars, and the rear license trim plate. All this chrome has been re-chromed to show standards.
I was all about test mounting the V8 to the frame. First we had to remove the cross member under the firewall.
Then came the the first test fit, after removing the lower wood section of the firewall, we slid the V8 and transmission into place.
