Running a TE21 and TF21

Thanks to excellent owners’ club and specialist back-up, the parts situation for the TE/TF21 is far better than you’d imagine for a car of its ilk, produced by an obsolete manufacturer. Secondhand parts are readily available from specialists, especially body panels, but they will need tailoring to fit – and chrome parts are especially difficult to get hold of.
