’68 Triumph TR6R – Part V

As you likely know if you’ve visited our shop or website, we have a collection of over 100 original vintage Triumph fuel tanks from which we’ve devised our formulas for original paint colors.

When we paint a tank, there comes a point in the process where we bring an original tank into the paint room, and hang it next to our work in progress.  That helps us as we apply the various layers and pinstriping to match the original pattern exactly, right down to the underside of the tank.

This photo is a good example of just how closely we’re able to match original paint color and scheme.  You can also see one of our newly painted fenders peeking out in the background.

We haven’t seen too many of these on the road, and we’re getting excited, as we think this paint job will be stunning.
