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"

Thanks, Alun.

    Hi Alun

    Sorry I can't help with Spitfire info but you may be able to help me. There don't seem to be many members who are posting about restoration projects and you may have seen my post about my Jaguar Mk2. I now need to find someone who can respray the shell for me. Any suggestions you have will be very welcome.

    Regards
    Angelo

I fit accuspark units to all the cars I restore as they are easy to fit, reliable and don't have any ugly boxes to screw inside the engine bay. Most of the units are under fifty pounds.
Hi Chris, the main advantage of having electronic ignition is better starting. It also means no more fiddly points to change or set. There are many systems available on the market. I don't know what v
