    The fender beading on the early 69s was finished in chrome but overpainted in body color at the factory.

        The 4 beads are chrome.
        250 was painted.

        One of the few things I do remember about the differences
        I'm really not that interesting...

          Familysimson,

          What is wrong with the top is either the webbing is loose from the back bow are they are connected at the wrong place. The rear bow is about 6in. forward of where it should be.

            Dixie6 refers to the 'rare' chrome strip on the seam of the rear wings,
            while Fid states it's incorrect and shouldn't be there - can anyone confirm
            if the chrome strip was an option? (I like it, but only if it's a factory thing).
            While I'm at it, the windscreen frame is not matte black either.
            Still a nice looking car tho.
            Cheers.
            Paul, what I said was it should be painted. not chrome. Early 6s had fender beads like the 250.

              You beat me to the paint code and steering wheel. One other thing the ign. switch is in the wrong position. It should be in the center postion of the four control knobs. And why do people spray under the hood black? I hate that. And they spray wires and everything. My white '69 is black under the hood and my last white '71 was black under the hood. It is very difficult to correct.

              Oh Well!

              In my experience that happens when people re paint the car a different color and dont take the engine out....then they dont want the original color , like red or blue etc under the hood...easy out , they paint it black...

              as some 'makes' are black under the hood... for instance my Firebird is factory satin black under the hood, no matter what body color is, and in our Firebird groups we get the same , but opposite problem...many re paint their cars with engine out and paint engine room body color...thats not GM, but Chrysler products did that, think Ford did too...but its a 'make' thing...

              but I think in Triumphs its an 'easy out' to paint it black...

              BTW, as I want to paint my tail panel black , as prev owner painted the entire car (under hood too) Green from having been Siena...
              what shade is it? is it to be flat or satin?

                I have 250 that had rear beading covered with bondo, that i am removing

                both front and rear are chrome
                i found another 250 that appears original-that has
                painted rear beading and chrome front wing beading?

                would you send me pic/email of brochure

                    Yeah, The TR5/250 beading should be painted.

                      1969 TR6 (25805, built Oct '68) with beading, the car is still in original paint, the beading is body color and no I'm not going to scrape it to see it there is chrome under the paint ; )

                        Here are two additional photos from the Original TR book by Bill Piggott.

                        Both show painted beading on a red TR250 and a white TR5/TR250.
