I figured since I will have a few parts I have NO IDEA what they are and there are probably other people in the same boat, I would start this thread. I have a few parts at home I have an idea on, but not 100% sure. But these filters were sitting in the car where I have it stored. Anyone have an idea?

Depends on the actual diameter. Those appear to be much too large in diameter for a GT6 pot filter but that may just be the photo. They are of similar form to the GT6 units. But, they were never used on a Spitfire.
But no other idea what they would be for.

Dale, Those doors look like they are for a Spitfire4 and early Spitfire4 Mk2. The trunk lid will fit early Spitfires through the Mk3. Next are headliner bows for a factory Spitfire hardtop - again early Spitfire through Mk3. The last photo shows seat tracks which probably go with the seats you showed in your "Seats" thread.

I can get 3 out of 4 on this one. Pic 5 = window regulator assembly. Pic 6 = trunk handles (the type that should be on your trunk). Pic7 = ? Pic 8 = Door striker assembly for Spitfire4 & early Spitfire4 Mk2.

It looks to me that most of the parts are for Mk3 and earlier cars. The doors have the lower inside handle location. The boot lid is a generic round tail unit. The top bows are from a Mk2 or 3 top, at least three of the many parts of one. The seat tracks are from later seats, with the latch in the inside instead of the outside as on the Mk3 seats. WIndow regulators, probably out of those doors. Mk3 or earlier boot lid handles. Inside door latch handle from MkIV or later doors.
The last is unk to me, weird camera angle or just unknown. I will go with the others on those I guess.

Is this the original type of headlight switch that would have been in the 65 Spitfire ?

This one doesn't work and I want one like it

Dale,
No not an original Lucas switch, That one looks pretty generic. So you might match it at your FLAPS.
All the best,
Paul

Thanks Paul

So that raises another question ... on the Spitfire where is the high beam switch normally? There is no floor button in mine ..did they use another system?

My Mk2 has a floor mounted switch/button mounted to the left. It is the OE stock set-up.

Sorry I can't provide a photo, Dale. The wife is out on the west coast with our camera.

Dale,
To follow up on George's post, If you don't have the foot dimmer switch you should at least have the bracket for it where you might rest your left foot when it isn't on the clutch pedal. Then again, the vagaries of rust and rust repair may have removed it sometime in the past..
Another sign of it is the wiring for it. A set of three heavy wires in a branch of the harness. Solid blue, blue/red, and blue/white. They originally had 1/4" quick disconnect (spade) connectors on them.
All the best,
Paul
