Nice!

I think if it were my garage my head would start to spin and my eyes would explode.
Could it possibly allow for TOO MANY projects at once??? I never would have thought it possible!

I agree!

First shop I was employed at had two bays. Doors about as wide as a small double car garage and a bit more height to clear the VW vans with the single cylinder lifts. Just enough room in the back to do unit work (engines and transmissions).

Good looking "dog house"!

Now how soon will you add the second story club house for visiting Pelican members???

Is that a TR6 in the "Dog House"? I would ask the stupid question "Does it run"? but my brother-in-law had one so I answered my on question.

Even if it ran when he took the picture, it probably doesn't anymore

Triumphs are great fun... if you have a lot of patience and a lot of tools.

Yes, the TR-6 starts. I even let it warm up a couple of days ago.

Notice that I didn't say run - master cylinder has been leaking for a long time, so I haven't driven it for about 6 years. Rotors need to be turned to get the rust off of them. Otherwise, it would pass inspection and would be legal to drive.

It actually is in fairly good shape - been garaged for most of its 30 year life - only some very minor surface rust under the carpets (which have long ago gone to dry-rot heaven), no body or frame rust. I have another garage attached to the house, which was packed beyond belief, and which is why my loving wife gave me permission (YEAH RIGHT - LIKE I REALLY HAD TO ASK!!!) to build the new one so she could park her MB in the attached garage. The TR-6 is another one of my long-owned projects (and yes - you can have too many projects on-going at one time), and as soon as I get the new radiator (recieved this Monday) in the 944 this coming weekend, I will return to dismantling the TR-6. My plan is to dismantle during '03, rehabilitate parts/restore during '04, and re-assemble during '05.

Excuse me, my wife is calling. I need to take out the garbage.

Profssr2017,

My '72 TR-6 project is well underway, and I can say that its really a lot of fun. I'm doing it out of a friend's shop near Altoona, PA. This guy is GOOD on anything Triumph. He even has hos own TR-6 that he uses as everyday year-round transportation!! Be sure to check his business out and feel free to call if you have any questions:
