In reply to # 3354239 by drivesmgs I love it-----a kissing cousin of mine----9976exu!

Is yours an EXU? What is your number? Are you head to the Stow show?

It is an EXU... 10114. Unfortunately we can't make Stowe, but we will definitely start to do events like this soon. Here are a couple of pictures of my Mom and Dad at Lime Rock Park's Historic Festival where he saw the restored car for the first time.

Wow---what a late car! I wondered how later cars still survive?

I asked about EXU because of the twin driving lamps on the badge bar --- your choice not Abingdon's. Love it.

I am on tabc but haven't visited in a while. We learned that the late EXU's had the larger horns on the firewall and decided on a second lamp on the badge bar.

Somehow we wound up with one wing mirror on the driver's side... Trying to decide if we put one on the passenger side.

EXU had bumpers with overrriders.

IMHO- bumpers are ugly and distract from appearance. I have the bumpers and supoorts but no overriders. I doubt that I would ever install them.

Post script - I only read the first page of posts so my comments are a number of years too late!

The frame should be a matt black. I had my frame (TA) cleaned and painted with a zinc primer. I was then advised to use "stone chip" black which to my great regret and disappointment came out a greyish matt.

Irrespective of originality I would paint the chassis in a gloss paint as it is easier to keep clean. I painted my car light green and should have used a dark green on the chassis. I have seen a clipper blue car with a regatta blue chassis.

It is difficult to suggest a contrasting colour to dark green for the chassis beyond a gloss black or just use the same colour as the body.

Before the war the TA's that were green had a green interior which was not a very stylish combination. TC's had more choice.
