Originally the inner side wheel arch bodywork panels were left completely exposed on the Triumph TR models. Here at John Skinner Ltd, we have designed millboard panels suitable for re-covering these areas – to add a little something extra to the often-overlooked Boot Trunk Area.

After the Giovanni Michelotti redesigns of the early 1960s – the Trunk area, or “Boot” as us Brits call it, was also overhauled due to changes in the bodywork tub and fuel/petrol tank. As with the earlier TR2-3B models, the Trunk area originally consisted of a millboard Liner Panel in front of the fuel/petrol tank – however, the boot luggage floor and the side panels were left with no coverings. The floor had a plywood base panel to cover the spare wheel – but unlike the earlier marques, there was no boot carpet/mat originally fitted to the cars. The side sections of the trunk were left exposed to body metalwork.

John Skinner templated these Boot Trunk Side Panels specifically for the TR4/TR4A/TR250 and a slightly different version to suit the petrol pump fitment of the TR5 cars. These kits offer our clients an alternative option in this area of the car that is often overlooked. John has himself owned various TRs over the years, including his treasured TR5 which he still owns – so we have tried and tested these specific parts first hand. We offer these panels in the pre-cut black grain-faced millboard material – to match the Boot Liner Petrol Tank Board. We can also offer a more premium option as part of our JS Bespoke range – where we upholster this millboard in Vinyl, Nylon or Wool – giving the whole Boot area a more luxury look and feel.

You should consider the floor Mat and Fuel Liner Panel in conjunction with this Side Panel kit to achieve the best results when restoring your Boot Trunk area of your Triumph TR.

Mark Macys own TR4 came in second place, at the same show – also with JSM trimmed fitted.

Please note that the colour names refer to internal John Skinner Ltd names, not necessarily the names Triumph originally used for these colours.

Due to industry-wide inconsistencies in production and record-keeping, it is widely accepted that the interpretation of original shades varies depending on who you ask. As a result, John Skinner Ltd offers multiple “original” shade options for you to make your final choice from. Below is a list of these accepted “original” colour choices that John Skinners can offer for your Triumph restoration project.

As of January 2021, the UK is no longer part of the European Union (EU). As a result, several changes have been implemented which affects how EU based customers now purchase things from the UK. Here is a brief overview…

The UK Value Added Tax (VAT @ 20%) is no longer applicable to any customers purchasing from outside the UK, assuming these goods leave the UK. To clarify, no VAT (20%) will be charged on initial purchase for any goods leaving the UK.

Instead your local country tax is charged upon importation into that country. This is based on the value of the goods as stated on the customs Invoice we supply. For most European countries – the result of this change is minimal as most local taxes range between 17% and 22% for the large majority of EU based countries. Note that some countries have lower tax rates, and others have higher, this is purely a guideline.

You will be contacted by a customs official upon arrival of the parcels to the destination country – and they will request payment of these taxes.

All shipping agents levy a small administration charge for “clearing customs” normally of a value around €5 – €10.

The large majority of our products are Tariff/Duty free – meaning that you should not incur additional tariff charges upon importation. It should be noted that we use the HS Commodity Code (Tariff Code) 8708.99.9790 “Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8708 > Other Parts…” – for the majority of the kits that we supply.

For any Trade or Wholesale Customers – if you provide us with your EORI number – then this is noted at the point of import, allowing you to claim back the Tax from your local government when you issue you tax returns.
