  1. Hi everyone. I'm reassembling a 1970 Mk2 Triumph GT6 some of which I took apart and some of which a 'bodyshop' took apart about six years ago and they are no longer in business. I have a bag with the identity tags in, the big one is obvious and is fitted on the passenger side beneath the bonnet, it's the main identity/spec plate for the car but the second plate I have no idea where it was taken from. By the colour of it it must be a fairly clean location possibly on the inside of the cab area (possibly on the inner sill/footwell, both of which were replaced). Has anyone got an idea where this goes please??
  2. I am considering self-restoring my 1977 Triumph Spitfire 1500 (North American model). The first hurdle I've encountered is a rusted frame at the junction of the rear cross member and left rear strut under the trunk (which I don't think is found on European models). Replacing the frame may be necessary. Does anyone know how interchangeable Spitfire frames are for models of different years or where to find that information? Thanks for any help you can provide.
  3. Would any of you kind souls be able to tell me the position of the bolt hole in the chassis bracket for GT6 rotoflex. Anyone got side or end elevation drawings? WSM only has top and a rear but it’s obscured. The Vitesse one gives a vertical dim from the top of the chassis.
  4. Hi, I am midway through my complete resto of my 1973 GT6 MK3. I am planning to paint the chassis the same colour as the body (Mimosa Yellow) as I am under the impression this is how they were from factory. What is the best sort of transparent protection I can use over the top of this (if necessary) whilst preserving the yellow topcoat (I was thinking lacquer or something similar). I am keen to avoid underseal/waxoyl (this will obviously cover the mimosa yellow) other than injecting into the chassis box sections. The car won’t be drive as a daily runner so I think stone chips will be the biggest problem. However I want to be sensible as well so am open to whatever if it is the right thing. Has anyone done similar where they have kept the chassis the same colour as the body and was the topcoat paint enough to keep it protected or would you advise something else? Hope this makes sense Thanks
  5. Hi guys, another problem with my ‘72 GT6, the driveshafts are touching the chassis on max droop. Damper mount conversion is fitted, are the dampers too long?
  6. I’ve got an issue with the metal clips that secure both 3/16” brake & 5/16” fuel tubes to the chassis. They don’t suit the 3/16 tube! They are too small. Has anyone else experienced this? Is the only solution to use the plastic ones?
  7. Please will someone post a picture of the route of the pipe from fuel pump back/down to the chassis. Does it go through the outrigger or between the bulkhead and the chassis?
  8. I have a 1977 Triumph Spitfire- my first car, actually- which I'm considering restoring before my wife sells it for scrap to get it out of the garage. I was stopped in my tracks by what I thought was a rotted chassis but realize in going into your forum that it is only the boot riggers, a feature only included in US market cars. Am I correct that I could cut the two riggers off without sacrificing any of the frame's structural integrity? I've shown the rot to a couple of car enthusiasts who know something about British sports cars and no one suggested I could do this. And while on the topic of restoration, any advice on a good source of information about the restoration process specific to a Spitfire is welcome (realizing how open ended this request is...). Although I'm tempted to turn it over to a pro (and I definitely will for portions of the restoration), the final cost would likely be much more than the car is worth, even with the sentimental value added. Plus, I think I'd enjoy the process if i did some of it myself.
  9. Hi all, After having a look at my brake pipes the other day I noticed that they should have some kind of fixing on them to the chassis as they would shear off otherwise due to vibration from the engine. As it stands it would fail its MOT. I would love to know what kind of fixing they require? where they attach to and where to get the fixing? I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out with this. I have attached a photo below. Also if anyone knows where to get one of these pipe fixing clamps which attaches to the bulkhead (2nd picture) I would really appreciate it also. Cheers, Jim.
