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....

Little Bites

Extra spacing washer on the bonnet pivot

I got a couple of hours this evening for the Spitfire. I finished testing and identifying the light bulbs in the center dash piece. There are a couple of odd ones I'm going to have to search for. I added a washer between the bushing and bracket on the bonnet hinge, it is now distorting less when I tighten it down. I also adjusted the metal in the bottom of the driver's side wheel well, there was just a little interference with the firewall preventing the bonnet from coming back toward th...

Happy Father's Day Full Of Progress

Bonnet is on looking like a Spitfire again

I had a great Father's Day! I hope all of the dads and granddads also did too . I got a chance to drive the MGB to a local car show in Newfane. Mostly American muscle cars there though, nice to look at and my MGB stood out as the worst in show . There was a nice Spitfire a VW bug and an '63 Avanti (I always liked them). Seeing all the great paint jobs and chrome gave me motivation to make progress on the Spitfire so headed home. Since I cut the hole out for the oil pressure/tempera...

I visited the local hardware store and found spacers for the heater controls and screws for the heater water valve assembly. I installed the controls and the heater valve. I checked the fit of the center dash piece to make sure it still lined up. I then worked t...

Wiring Up The Dash

Mounting everything in the main dash section

My new and used parts order from Team Triumph came this week. I scored on many parts including rubber for mounting lights, relays, heater valves, trim pieces, lights, etc. I sorted through them and dropped some of the parts in Evaporust. I still need a right side rubber piece for the side running light. I started to wire up the dash today too. I mounted the instruments, warning light sockets, hazard switch and dimmer on the main part of the dash. I hung the assembly from the metal part of ...
