Painting is done !

Refinished the dash with walnut burl, it looks great. Body was separated from the frame and placed on the rotisserie. Floors, sills, fenders, A and B-posts are done. Frame/jig on the rotisserie worked out great, nothing moved or twisted. Cleaning up welds on the bottom side now. Frame has been treated with internal frame coat, Now painted with AG111 MasterSeries frame paint kit. O/D transmission rebuilt. Motor run and test of the overdrive transmission completed.
Lots of progress being made....

Refurbished Instruments

They really looks great

I received the refurbished speedo and tach from Nisonger yesterday. What a fantastic job they did, they look great! They arrived well packaged and marked fragile. I am really happy with them. The tach was modified to work with modern electronic ignitions, additional cost but seems worth it. The final test will be when I use them. I will be ordering the upholstery and interior bits today.

Best Laid Plans...

Only when you move do you truly find how much crap you have accumulated. I've proved that adage once again with this move. Two dumpster loads of landfill are gone and I still have a garage full of unsorted 'stuff' at the new house. But the old house is now on the market and only car related stuff left there is in the shed, allowing me a little extra time to move it while the house shows. Nothing new to report except the new wiring harness from Autosparks has arrived, it looks great. I als...

Mostly Settled

Ready to get started in its new home

I took advantage of the holiday and had my sons and son in law help me move things into position. We moved the tool box into its new home in the corner, moved most of the extra MGB parts out of the way and then moved most of the Spitfire parts into place including the doors and boot lid. Then we rolled the car into the shop and settled it into a good place for me to work on it. The weather is warm(er) today and the sun is out, so I left that MGB outside with the top up to see if I can g...

Moving Day For The Spitfire

Posted on: Sunday April 1, 2018

Getting ready to load

It has been quite awhile since my last post. Work, travel, cold weather and getting the house cleaned out has taken most of my time. Friday was moving day for the Spitfire. I arranged to have the car moved in covered transport as there is still lots of salt on the road and I didn't want any of it on the car. The trailer was big enough to also pack my tool box, three motors and the engine crane, with lots of room left over. I wished I had been better prepared as I could have stuffed the co...
