Triumph Spitfire EV Conversion: Early Restoration Work
June 29, 2018
As far as Spitfires go, the Mark-IV and 1500s aren’t as special as the 1960s models, so I never felt obligated to stick to an all-original and pure restoration project for this car. I wanted to make some aesthetic and functional modifications.
I started by replacing the old, rotting seats with bucket seats from a Mazda Miata, removing the heavy chrome bumpers, and replacing the rotten fiberboard transmission cover with a modern plastic one.
