Is there anyone out there with an early Spitfire who would allow me to have a look under the bonnet ? I am in the process of restoring my 1964 Spitfire 4 and need to refresh my memory as to wiring loom and hydraulic pipe runs etc.. Would be very grateful for any help from anyone on this. You can contact me on 01239 614013 or by email at "alun.jones396@btinternet.com"
