Seats and Cooling

I haven’t really done much physical work to the Triumph over the past month, save the past few days. However, behind the scenes I’ve been planning my steps at becoming closer to my goals. I’ve been looking heavily into wiring and exhaust components, as well as thinking about what’s the best way to tackle my…

Fuel

Work has been endless and literally non-stop. I’m seldom home and when I do manage to allocate some time to be home, it’s usually just to load up the coffee maker and make my lunch for the next day. To be honest, I’ve been a bit of a zombie for the past couple of months…

Blending Wheels and Mig Welders

I’m pretty lucky. Pretty much whenever I want to, I get to surround myself with automotive excellence. Wide fenders, sticky tires and noisy exhausts – it’s really just a shop full of toys. It has been nice though, every time I walk in through that door I get bombarded with inspiration and happiness. With a…

Inspiration

Back in July, I went on a trip with a group of my friends down to North Carolina. Avid motorcyclists and gear heads might already know where this is going but the lot of us packed ourselves up and headed to the infamous Tail of the Dragon. Once we arrived at The Dragon, we quickly…

Cooling Things

Just a short update. I’m working on mounting all of accessories on the car to get everything to fit properly. This includes an aftermarket oil cooler, a radiator and the OEM intake bits. I just have a bunch of photos for reference. Any drips in the primer on the frame I will be fixing so…

Connected Driveline

I’ve managed to be able to sink some more money into the Triumph over the past month or so which, as always, makes fantastic things happen. Waiting both patiently and anxiously I received a phone call from Harman Heavy Vehicle Specialists, the company whom I gave the GT6 and Miata driveshafts to. Just as a…

Constant Velocity

First off, I want to give an apology for not updating the blog for such a long period of time. There has been so much going on in my life the past couple of weeks its been hard to stay focused on this project. Most of my free time recently has either been spent with…

Deadlines

I’ve spent whatever time I have dedicated this week on the Triumph to putting my frame back together. My solution is simple, take a 2″ x 2″ piece of angle steel, tig weld end caps onto it and weld it back into place. For once, I’m actually decently pleased with my tig welding. Unfortunately for…

How to Mount a Motor

It has been an insanely busy week working on the car but also incredibly productive. My goal was to get the motor and transmission mounted in the car so I can finally take them off of the hoist. I can happily say that with some help from friends, my goal was successfully accomplished last night….
