  1. Wow, that really looks like the original Did you check with the hood frame on the car that the final distances work out fine? Better do that now before you fabricate the second one JC
  2. Hi, I found this picture when I restored my Mk1 : The top of the tube is 42 cm above the inner sill. Hope this helps JC
  3. I have 2 of these and the one on the Spitfire probably 10 years and still in good shape : https://www.autopyjama.com/auto-pyjama-car-cover/ And I bought the cheapest version Its important that the space where the car is stored is dry and ventilated! JC
  4. Welcome Duncan Looking forward to some pics of this infamous A30. Will Midget disc brakes cope with such a potent engine ?? JC
  5. Great documentary about life around the steam trains I suppose it must be good fun to hear (and feel) these engines all day long Looking forward to the next update. JC
  6. Well done, getting to the finish on this rallye is quite a challenge I have been down in the Ardèche region last weekend to have a lock at the Monte Carlo Historique. All these small roads are enormous fun during the day, but once it gets dark its quite different. I suppose that the last night stages are really challenging If you like driving on small empty roads with bend after bend for mile after mile you need to go down to the Ardèche one day! Unfortunately I didn't see the Spitfire during the stages so no photos which the car in action ... Spitfire in Reims Crest, Rhone valley Typical road in the Ardeche Bond GT 6 mk 2 Triumph 2000 JC
  7. Very sad news, his humor, technical knowledge and attention to detail will be sadly missed. RIP Alan JC

  12. Hi, the springs are still up for sale. I need to add £10 for postage. Thanks JC

  14. I have a lathe but already 3 month behind schedule with the planned work on my cars this year But as far as I can remember I have the Superflex ones on my Spitfire since I restored it over 10 years ago https://www.superflex.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=SF375-1850KSS JC
  15. I use the 100w bulbs with relays on both the Spitfire and Vitesse. Works well and never let me down. Some people say that the headlights will wear out faster, but how many hours do you drive in the dark …... JC
  16. Ar least the weather is nice and the result is looking good And you'll spend a small fortune by doing it yourself! JC
