Triumph Spitfire EV Conversion: Some Exterior Progress

The Spit *looks* like a car again, and is already a stunner IMHO despite still needing a lot of work. A bit of the noteworthy progress so far:

  • LED Headlamp upgrade
  • LED lights all around
  • New rear leaf spring, upgraded GAZ shocks front and back and lowered front suspension
  • 1960s style side mirrors
  • The grille will be custom and the location of the electric charging port
  • Super tiny license plate lights, although I’m going to try to install these under the lip of the boot

Long, lean lines of the trunk and the pared-down rear.

Holding the windshield in place until I can get it installed.

Don’t mind the neighbors… But I always forget how SMALL these cars are compared to our modern ones.

Body on frame, upgraded suspension, LED headlights, and all coming together
