Bob Cousins bought this car in December 1966 and did a lot of the body work, floors and panels and had the engine rebuilt. I bought the car from Bob in Feb 2017 when he was unable to continue due to ill health. Bob has remained involved in the restoration and came down today with his wife Jenny to see the progress. Here are some shots of Bob enjoying the way the car has evolved from the wreck he bought in 1966.

You may want to turn the fuel filler cap so the release button is facing either left or right to avoid hitting it when you open the boot.

Thanks Graham. It is clear of the boot. I have the filler on my other TR2 sideways to clear the boot but this one is OK. Probably the tank is in a slightly different position.

David Clark has given the TR2 a thorough check over and declared she is a very nice drive and awarded a pink slip. He put about 10kms on the odometer, more than doubled what I had done.
After a visit to Pikey I dropped into the Katoomba Services NSW and she is now registered on historic plates. Woo hoo, I will drive her home on the next sunny day, probably Tuesday.
Shannons have provided $75,000 agreed value cover.
The OD isn't operating so after discussion with Bob Anderson the box will have to come out, again. At least there is no interior fitted so it will be a straightforward evolution. I get to drive her for a couple of months first as he isn't available for awhile.
