Just finished our new Gas Spring Bonnet Lift Kit for Spitfire!

It's really quite a nice design. I've seen a few other designs using off-the-shelf Springs, but ours bolts right on WITHOUT any drilling, etc. AND it has the best mechanical advantage of any other design I've seen. This means it helps lift the Bonnet from the get-go, and completely takes over the lifting after just a small portion of the opening travel.

It will take a few days until it's up on our web site, although did just post it on eBay, but I wanted to share it here first. Fits 62-78 Spits with the vertical radiator.

UPDATE: Now loaded on our web site and shipping cost is $4 cheaper here: http://www.clarkandclarkinc.com/products/triumph-lift-kit.php

Thanks, everyone for your support!

Cheers,

Robert

Will this work on a 69 gt6+? I don't think mine will be able to mount in the same spot. If i was to buy that kit can those replacement shocks be purchased localy or do I have too get them from you?

Hi Norm,
I don't think this will work on a GT6, because I believe your radiator is not in the same position as a Spitfire's--and we fasten our brackets to the radiator.

I had these Gas Springs made specifically for this application so they can't be purchased elsewhere. I'm not sure if they would be right for you, either--it all depends on finding strategic mounting points on the Bonnet and Engine Bay. I wish I had access to a GT6 so I could help with this!

Cheers,

Robert

Any thoughts about developing full kit for gt6. I have a 73' and would like to keep the strain off the hood locks while lifting.

You should never open by lifting with the hood latches. Lift at the wheel well opening.

Yes, if this kit proves popular with Spitfire owners, I will make one for GT6, too.

Funny, I've had as many requests from GT6 owners for a Lift Kit for GT6, as I've had purchases of the Spitfire Kit so far!

I will have to borrow a GT6 in the Spring and see if I can make a nice Kit.

Cheers,

Robert
