Good afternoon all; My name is Philip Guzman, I am in the final steps on rebuilding a 1965 FHC. 1 also have a 1963 triumph TR4, and several brit motorcycles in various states of reassembly.. does anyone out there have any tips on installing the chrome drip rail covers ? I have three, none of which fit! Any tips will be greatly appreciated!

Never done it myself but I recall an article either in the Colin ford booklet or more likely in the book by Chris Rooke where the issue is described in detail.
From what I remember they ended up being held in place with pieces of wood jammed against the workshop wall whilst the adhesive set !
Series 1 FHC purchased 40 years ago when I was young. Sold
Series 1 2+2 when the kids were small now sold
Series 1.5 OTS in opalescent maroon, Californian car. My retirement present.
