Bish - since you sounded interested in the TR7 steelies, I thought I would post a couple of closer-up photos to show them more clearly. I can't claim any credit for these wheels: the idea and implementation were all my son's. He bought the steelies from a guy that had gotten them from Hardy Prentice (a rather famous old school US Triumph sportscar racer), painted the wheels silver, and bolted them on using chrome plated, tall-hat nuts that nicely finish the wheels. The more that I look at 'em, the more I like 'em. The original alloys will have to wait a bit.
More pressingly, later this week I expect a laaarge package from Santa Rimmer, within which will be a new 12-vane water pump and cover, plus a whole bunch of other stuff. The water pump was the one did-not-go-well part of the recent re-awakening of PFJ. The engine ran like a charm, but whenever it was revved to more than 2500 rpm, the WP relief slot started spewing forth bodily fluids. I dread having to do this task since it requires the removal of the entire intake manifold/carbs unit to get to the WP. PFJ is running so well now (left idle for 7-10 days at a stretch, she always starts on the first twist of the key). Too many opportunities for me to muck things up.
A Happy New Year to one and all!
