TC21 rear wings

Postby drdowhitt » Fri Apr 24, 2015 12:01 am

I have a small question for the group: on a TC21 are the apertures in the rear wings for the lamps and fuel filler reinforced in any way? The rear wings that I am about to fit to my TC21 were supplied years ago (via Walkers Radiators) and were made using my old wings as patterns. The old wings were little more than flaky rust and filler and were not returned. I have cut holes for the lamps and fuel filler but am wondering whether to make backing plates to weld in place behind the metal. Any advice would be very welcome.

Jon,
I have a TA21 and expect both to be the same. On my car there is no reinforcing for the fuel pipe/cap. The rubber seal keeps everything in place and allows for a very small amount of play between the pipe/cap and guard.

With respect to the lamp mounts there is a small strip welded on each end of the cutout. This allows for more metal to accept the plated screw that secures the glass lens/ body to the guard.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Richard, that is exactly the sort of detail I needed. I will replicate that,
