Info for Spitfire MK1

Recommended Posts

I was told on FB by someone more knowledgeable than myself that there is a small difference between the hood frame on a MK1 car and a MK2.

can someone let me know if it is significant, or just whats the difference.

Hi Peter,

On my Mk2 I'm using a hood frame that came from a crashed Mk1that I broke in the 80s. I have just been out to the garage to compare it with the rusted remains of the frame that came with my Mk2 (I never throw anything away) and I can't see any difference at all. 

Don't be put off by the crudeness of the standard arrangement, it seems to work really well, especially if you can find a hood that has the elastic tensioning strips and hooks of the original.
