Mk1 and Mk2 hood frame


Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to this group and am after a bit of help. I have recently aquired a Mk1 Spitfire which has had the hood frame repaired at some time in the past. I think the legs have been replaced with some tubing but left slightly too long. When I lock the legs down in their low position it is too high. It is a real struggle to get the hood on and when it is, it is fully tensioned without having to release the sprung catches on the frame legs. Does anybody have a Mk1 or Mk2 Spitfire and could possibly measure from the peg locating slot to the base of the leg for me? I think I need to chop a bit off the legs that have been welded on and need to check what length they should really be.

Many thanks
