"61 TR3A last project"     1961 Triumph TR3

Introduction / Overview: This was my last project completed before I purchased the lincoln's. This car was in worst condition than all of the cars I have restored. I built this car to show but now that it is complete it has only left the shop a few times.
Drivetrain: all original
Chassis: original
Wheels and Tires: After market this car was not a factory wire wheel car. I spent just as much on the adaptors,  tires and rims as I did for all of the paint supplies over $4000
Body & Paint: It took me 3 months and 5 sessions of spraying and block sanding to get the body flawless. 6 coats of clear with a color sand in between every second coat. this car was painted inside out top to bottom
Interioir: wool carpets and a soft leather interior kit that I imported from the UK. Was held in customs for 3 weeks(long story)
