PRE-SHOW EL­BOW GREASE

Classics Monthly - - Our Cars -

Up to now the weather hasn’t been good enough to give our Tri­umph’s dull paint­work a thor­ough valet but after tack­ling the car’s (very large) roof with a small amount of G3 rub­bing com­pound, the re­sult was very en­cour­ag­ing.

When it fi­nally stops rain­ing, we’ll give all the paint­work a gen­tle go­ing over with rub­bing com­pound fol­low­ing by a gen­er­ous coat of wax pol­ish be­fore we head off the NEC where mem­bers of the Tri­umph 2000 and 2500 Reg­is­ter will be get­ting their hands dirty over­haul­ing the bot­tom end of our Tri­umph’s 2.5-litre straight six.
