We made the Feb 2009 Cover of
Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car Magazine!!!!!!!!!!
For Sale...........and all made by me!
Back in 2008 I completely made a custom leather interior for my car. I cut the hardboard panels on my band saw and taught myself to sew. It's 12 years later and I have a Fabrication Shop in Maine custom cut all the hardboard panels on a CNC machine so every panel is perfect and identical to every other panel. My Interior Kit contains all the usual components but I also include Kidney Pads and Door Caps at a price that beats anyone out there.
I've also branched out and make a custom padded Boot Cover as well as a unique Fender Blanket that protect your car and holds your tools.
In the past 12 years I've sold almost 200 Interior Kits, 150 Boot Covers and 180 Fender Blankets. Not too bad for an old retired guy with no formal training! And the best part is all the sales are by referral or "word of mouth".
Check out the Fender Blankets along with Interior Panel kits and Boot Covers. At some point I'll set up a separate site for these items but for now just follow the links or email me for more information.
Another Great Owner's Web Site
If you like my site, I've got another site that I know you'll love. Paul Rego is the original owner..............actually I think he might have married the original owner which in itself shows what a smart guy he is..............of a drop dead gorgeous 1974 Mimosa TR6. And if that's not enough he also has an equally gorgeous TR8. Paul's site is similar to mine in that he does a terrific job of documenting all the work he does with text and pictures. Between the two of us we've covered a ton of helpful hints for keeping your TR6 on the road. Make sure you spend some time looking through Paul's site. You'll be glad you did......... www.74tr6.com

Tags and Title Tool Box
Every state seems to have its own set of rules & regulations surrounding the inspection and registration process for classic cars. If you frequent the various British Car Forums, you'll all too frequently read horror stories about guys spending weeks and months beating their heads against the proverbial DMV wall. As a way to help us all out, SEMA has put together a "tool box" that covers every state and can be seen here.............. more info
Canada Brokerage Fees & Duty
Shipping to Canada is always a challenge due to the various Duty & Brokerage fees involved. I've been making custom interior panels for a year now and have seen the Canadian recipient charged $90 by UPS for brokerage fees on a $250 item. Pretty outrageous. A fellow TR6 owner was nice enough to document the ins and outs of these fees. You can read all about it here..........more info
