TR250 and TR6 Glove Box Companion
THE CAST OF CHARACTERS
Beki Jones's Car—Continued
these and so many more parts are available again through the work done at The
Roadster Factory to source and remanufacture parts. And The Roadster Factory did end
up getting my first born; he is now a member of the family here at TRF.
As the restoration process progressed, all new glass was installed. The bonnet was
louvered (That was scary!). Other parts were chromed for fun. The TR6 was painted
in black metal-flake with a gold TR6 stripe kit to match the vision dreamed up many
years before. A street roll bar was painted gold and installed. A brand new wiring
harness was bought. The 1969 model interior was kept. A new black interior trim
panel kit and seat rebuilding kits were used. All crash pads and door tops were
replaced and the dash support was recovered. A new TRF dash was used. A custom
wool carpet set from The Magic Carpet Factory was installed. A black Robbins top
with reflective stripe was used. A new tonneau cover was modified to fit around the
roll bar and installed.
Actually, when thinking about it, if you can name it, it was probably replaced! The
restored 1971 TR6 first saw the light of day during the Summer Party of 1991. And
although it might not be your typical classic TR6, it is the perfect manifestation of the
owner's dream come true...I love my car!!
