Oct 27, 2008 update to the Triumph Group 44 GT6 project car

Cut and Weld

Transmission tunnel
Work on the frame

Since our last update, The Body Werks has continued to work on the body of our Group 44 GT6. A huge chunk of our driveshaft tunnel had been been removed, so Tom Prescott expertly cut out a chunk of tunnel from our parts car and welded it back into place.

Our driveline has been delivered to Kent Bain at Vintage Racing Services, who will carry out the rebuild. We took the chassis back to our shop, stripped it, and carefully inspected it. We noticed a couple of problem areas, so we quickly welded them up.

From there, the chassis will go to the powder coating shop. While it was originally painted rather than powder coated, you can’t really tell the difference in the semi-gloss finish. Plus the powder coating will hold up much better than paint.
