    • Looking good Jim! I followed Daniel's alignment procedure and what a fantastic improvement over the old "point them to the front" method. Highly recommend his procedure!

            • Looking great Jim. That had to be my least favorite job installing those clips. I need to do one channel again though as the clips came off over the past year...

              That is going to be one sharp car when you get her done Jim.

                      • Thanks for the update with photos.
                        Best in Class is pretty darn nice.
                        She looks beautiful; like the redlines, too.

                        • That car looks amazing. I think black was the best colour Triumph never offered (they didn't offer black...right?)

                          It looks great complimented by the spokes and redlines. And yes, the ooh-ahh factor of those triple ZS just adds to the package.

                          Your blog was one of the first Triumph-related resources I encountered after getting Trevor, and I have followed it since - great to see Tillie on the road.

                          • Stunning 6 Jim! And did someone mention 2015 calendar? :whistle:

                            A question: Is her name, "Miss Tillie", a reference to Beatrice "Tillie" Shilling?

                            • Thanks everyone for the kind words. Truth be told, without the 6-Pack and all the members who so willingly share their knowledge, Miss Tillie may well have become a parts car... hmy:

                              Keith, as far as I know black was available on the TR250 but not the TR6.

                              Bruce, I had never heard of Beatrice "Tillie" Shilling, so I did a Google search...what an amazing woman, thanks for asking the question!

                                Yes, she invented "Miss Tilly's Orifice". Helped win the Battle of Britain.
