What is Wedgeneering...? It's the art of maintaining and - perhaps - improving or modifying (but not in the boy racer sense!) the TVR and Lotus 'wedges', without recourse to 'experts' or dealers. Money you can save by doing jobs yourself will be better spent on petrol ;-) Best of all, the information here is FREE! No need to buy particular publications or rely on some so-called or self-professed 'specialist'. These cars hark back to an era before computers and factory-sealed assemblies. They were built by real people, not production-line robots; chaps who wore flat caps and drank beer, women who smoked and went to bingo on Friday nights. If they could build them, you can repair and maintain them.
These are simple cars, largely built from bits of other cars, so you can bet that someone has 'been there' before you and probably found a solution to most issues. Most of the technical data you need for the TVR can be found in the workshop manuals for the Ford Cortina Mk4/5, Granada, Capri, the Rover SD1, the Triumph TR7 and the Jaguar XJ6 - and lots of that information has found its way onto the internet too. The oily bits of the Lotus are a bit more specialised but even so the factory manual is easily found through dedicated websites or the usual online auctions.
I hope you find something of use; if not then email me using and I'll see if I can help out!
