Triumph TR6 - Rear Bumper Holes?
This is a truly newbie question - the centre rear bumper has two holes on the top, about the size of a quarter. I have scoured the catalogues and BBS's without any luck figuring out what the heck goes there.
The only thing I've seen is a Triumph badge, but that appears to mount on the face of the bumper, rather than on top.
Can someone sort me out please?
|steve where are you in nl?|
|Can you post a pic. |
What year is your car?
All important info when you are a new.
Gimme a call, Les and I will figure it out for ya. :)
I've got that carb fitting you're looking for - left you a voice mail.
|I don't know the year of your car, but up to and including the 1972 model year, the license plate lamp was mounted there. If your car is a 1973 or later, it is possible that at some point in the car's life an earlier rear bumper was fitted.|
Sounds like your bumper is from a 69-70 car where the license plate light wires came up through the 2 openings The light fixture sat on top the bumper.
You can see it on the picture of my 69 . Under the light are 2 holes.
Les, I'm in St. John's, over in Southlamds.
Bob, you should drop by some day/evening to have a look - she's coming together nicely.
The car has a 1974 motor, a 1975 body and now, apparently, a 1969-70 rear bumper ;-)
It may be a mutt but it's a pretty one!
I have had lots of MG's and Spits before but this is my first TR6. Easily the coolest of the bunch.
