I'm just beginning to restore a 1970 TA that I recently purchased.
I've never done this before so I'm trying to learn as much as I can
about this car, collecting any and all information available. I've
already got several books, made lots of bookmarks in my browser and
got my packet from PHS. Unfortunately the original build sheet no
longer exists. There are quite a few things on my to-do list and I've
decided to start with the interior.
One of the previous owners replaced the door panels. But they didn't
install water shields and they didn't use the correct fasteners (they
used 4 screws and a lot of glue), so the panels are now terribly
warped. And I'm not even sure they used the correct panels. I've
looked through various parts catalogs and at photos of other 70 TAs,
but it's not clear which door panels are indeed correct for a 70 TA
with custom interior. Mine have an upper and a lower panel, the lower
being plastic with an armrest and two molded pockets...no pull strap
on the top panel. Are these correct? I'm hoping someone can point me
in the right direction. Also, my headliner, sunvisors and domelight
are gone (as in not present), so any good interior photos or links
thereof would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to see the interior of
a correct car so I can do mine right.
