Front windscreen

Hi all looking to fit the front windscreen to my 2000. I have fitted a few windscreens in the dim distant past so think I know what I’m doing if I haven’t forgotten it all 🤔 Anyway I’ve got a new windscreen and a new windscreen rubber what I’m wondering is about the “chrome” trim. I seem to recall f...

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Had a couple of heaters on all night before and the whole day I think that helped (got up about 15 degrees) boiling hot by my winter workshop standards 😂
I'll post some more when I've made a bit more progress. Set myself a challenge to get it done, screens fitted etc by the end of the month....

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Right I’ve had a cup of tea and looked at the cost of a new lining from a certain well known Triumph spares retailer and decided I didn’t want to pay £120 or so for another one so I’d better just fit one I’ve already got! On the basis of having little to lose at this point, I pulled the headlining h...

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Well I’ve tried to fit the headlining but after I’ve “clipped” the first rail and start to try fitting to next one there is a fair bit of tension. I can get the second rail in and vertical but when I move to the third rail it’s very tight to get it vertical so much so that while I’m trying to get th...

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Hi, thanks that’s helpful. I’ve measured my rails at; 1220 1212 1220 1214 1226 Based on your rails I’m tempted to swop my numbers 1 & 2 over. I’ve tried them in position on that basis and they seemed fine I’ve threaded the rails back into the head lining ready to fit. Just need to restick some of th...

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Today I have removed 2 more of the roof stays so I now have the first 4 out. There is a marking scheme, the first bar is unmarked, the second has 2 red bars, the third has 3 red bars, the fourth has 4 red bars. Roof stays showing colour bars.jpg I don't know if the marking is standard, or if it some...

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Hi that’s very interesting (sounds like it’s going to take awhile). I’ll remove all 5 rails tomorrow to check colours but I have already removed the front 2. One is marked in Red the other appears unmarked. If as I suspect they are not correctly colour coded I will take you up on the offer of the sp...

Headlining on Mark 2

Hi All, I'm looking for a bit of help on what I think might be a rather obscure subject for you all, but if you can assist i'd be most grateful :D I have a 2500 i'm "restoring" well mostly reassembling. It's been in bits for about 20 years and there are plenty of opportunities for me to learn. What ...
