TR6 restoration – brand new chassis

Model: Filed in: Workshop

Our client wants an exceptional fast road TR6 – so we started at the very beginning…

On presentation, this TR6 looked in pretty good shape having had some quality panel replacement work done before coming into our client’s possession. But just days before coming into ur workshop, engine failure added more work to the list, and on stripping the car and revealing the chassis we found quite a mess – perhaps the worst TR6/TR/Spitfire/GT6 chassis we’ve ever seen – a real basket case. So a brand new chassis was quickly ordered from CTM, our preferred TR6 metalwork supplier, along with their excellent rear shock absorber conversion kit.

The new chassis is now painted in etch and multiple coats of 2k, and we’re starting on the body – engine bay first.
