Hope you have as much fun driving as you did repairing your TR7. With the long winters here in Minnesota its great seeing others projects and progress being made. Thanks for sharing. We have a running and driving 77TR7 and bought an 81 drop top, which needs well.... everything :)

I found heat tape on the clutch lines helped with boiling issue and heat shields helped with starter failures. When lights don't work, its usually a ground problem. We had the steering wheel drop onto my lap, a few loose nuts fixed this.

We have worn away 60,000 mile tires, so you know we drive our car. Its a work in progress not a beauty Queen. Good luck on your project, drive it like you mean it.

Hi Scott, great work! I met your parents at Mallala a couple of weeks ago. My 1978 TR7 is the same colour codes as yours (paint & trim) , though has been resprayed a 1981 Holden Blue colour at some stage. However, being a cheap respray the original blue like yours is visible as the paint has peeled form racing stickers being removed etc. It was great to see what the whole car would have looked like.
On behalf of the Triumph Sports Owners Association, we would love to invite you to display the car at one of our general meetings, in any condition. You could display it once its running & registered and give us a progress talk, and then a finished product display! Or just one time, up to you. Our club website is Best of luck getting your L's very soon. Feel welcome to contact us if you need any technical advice or have any questions, im sure our experienced members would love to help to ensure the TR7 lives on!
