Having owned two Spitfires, your conversion is exactly the right thing to do. Well done!

Thanks Al. I have the previous owner to thank for doing all the work. I can only take the credit for snapping it up when I found out it was for sale after 5 years.

Awesome looking car... actually Triumph might still be in business if they made this car, got rid of Lucas electrical components, and put in fuel injection (that will be your next step). Great job!!

That is a car I would love to have.

It is fun. Since I got it from Keith, I have moved the battery to improve the center of gravity, replaced the tires, lowered the front end, changed the tires, replaced the steering coupler and replaced the shifter assembly. Next on the list is to fix the toe on the rear end and change the camber by about 1.5 degrees. It is fun to autocross.
