With the beauty of hindsight, we are now all too aware of overheating engines with these classic cars! Back then, they did not really have a long term solution; but these millboard radiator covers certainly helped reduce the hot airflow for the Triumph TR6 models.

The history of these covers for the engine radiators is a little unclear. Seemingly introduced by the Triumph production line after various complaints were made to the car dealers, especially in North America, that the cars were having overheating issues. This rudimentary millboard cover was thus quickly introduced for the majority of the Triumph TR cars – offering a basic method of diverting air into the radiators in an attempt to keep them cool. These radiator cowl assemblies were updated in-line with the overhauled TR4 models, and continued through to the TR6 models, with only small-run productions such as the TR5 models overlooked for this particular part.  Manufactured in a millboard material, this cover forms an archway shape to funnel the air directly into the radiator; with subtle variations between the Petrol Injection (PI) models, and the Carburettor (Carb) models.

We offer it in the pre-cut black grain-faced millboard material – using a templated design based on the original panel. Over the years we have supplied 1000s of these ducts all over the world – so our product is tried, tested and certified. As John has also owned multiple TRs during his lifetime – he has tinkered and updated with small improvements to ensure the best results for the cars.

We also worked closely with Mark Macy of Macy’s Garage (USA) on his wife’s TR4 – becoming the only Triumph TR to ever score the perfect 100-point score in the TRA Concours D’Elegance – back in 2018. Mark Macys own TR4 came in second place, at the same show – also with JSM trimmed fitted.
  • Access to help and advice when it comes time to fit these parts – we have been making and fitting these same parts for a long time – we know all the tricks, and we are more than happy to assist you or your trimmer should you get stuck. As noted above, John himself has used this part on a number of his own TRs, so we are well versed in the fitment process.

Brexit

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The UK Value Added Tax (VAT @ 20%) is no longer applicable to any customers purchasing from outside the UK, assuming these goods leave the UK.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.
