The TRDC are pleased to announce that we now stock a small supply of gear gaiter ferrules. These small, seemingly insignificant trim items are often either perished or missing completely. Now available in a turned aluminium or a product that closely replicated the black original, the ferrule is easily fitted and takes just a few minutes. First, dis-

I still have over half a tin of paint left to use as touch up, but it seems unlikely to be required as it's a pretty robust surface.
A great job Paul. As near to having a ‘new’ interior for just £30.00 – I can’t argue with that!

Further to the article about labels for the TR7 V8 and TR8, the following is the current list of 48 labels for the TR7 and TR8 that I have reproduced. Lots of people have said they would like a set for their car, but I stopped trying to put these labels in sets when I reached over 16 different cars all with varying requirements. The actual variation is likely to be well into the twenties. The image above is a set for a UK early Speke car. Examples of complete label sets HERE.

Labels vary in price from £1:00 to £8:00 depending on size (plus postage). Cars usually require just one label (although some people have taken the opportunity to buy a spare) but be aware that two number 003s are normally required, one for each air box.

Fuse panels had a multiplicity of labels and a couple of the more popular ones are available. The part numbers of fuse labels was looked into over twenty years ago when it was found there were over ten different ones. A database is currently under construction and confirmation of car model, LHD or RHD, VIN and fuse layout part numbers would be appreciated. The main focus is numbers for Canley and Solihull cars as the earlier Speke vehicles had a completely different layout -

NEW TR7/8 BODY PANELS
The TR Drivers Club are actively talking to several companies about reproducing body panels for the TR7 range. This has come about owing to British Motor Heritage scrapping the TR7 press tools without telling anyone they were doing so.

DECEMBER 2018 UPDATE: We will be updating TR Drivers Club members of the full progress shortly within TR Driver. As I write we are still awaiting the price for the complete front panel but have a cost for outer skin only. Rear light cluster full panel price is in. Progress is ongoing.
The Register's new 'Wedge Team' has caused some confusion which is understandable. This was simply a case of bad timing probably caused by surprise when we broke the story via Jon Burgess in Classic Car Weekly and the Register felt they needed to be seen to be doing something. This is not the team managing the re-
More news will be publised in the next issue of TR Driver in about two months time. All the above came in too late to get into the current issue.
