Very well sorted. rust free 1979 Triumph Spitfire.  I am second owner.  First owner spent considerable time and money on mechanicals (engine and compartment) and electricals.  I had the body taken down to bare metal; fixed every little ding; removed all rust (inside and out); added Rustmort; painted w epoxy based primer; skim coat of bond to make her real straight; sanded down smooth after two guide coats; removed all glass and replaced after paint w new gaskets; painted brilliant red (stock color) w several coats of clear; wet sanded w 2000 grit; orange peel knocked down; buffed and polished; very good finish ! Did the same to factory metal top; completely redone. Interior redone: rotted wood dash pieces replaced; new switches that work for electricals (prior owner totally rewired car);  houndstooth beige seat covers and new foam installed; new visors and dash overlay; new door panels in beige. rear cockpit and wheel arch panels in beige installed; black carpet mats; complete trunk panel kit.  Brakes totally redone.  Many other new parts with receipts.  Car was converted to earlier small bumpers (massive rubber bumpers removed); chrome blacked out in satin paint.  Fog lamps added inside front bumper. Wheels redone in nice matching color; wear new tires.  Car slightly "raked" forward so steers great ( redone front coil overs allow height adjustment) has perfect stance.  Receipts and CD w pics of build available to successful bidder.   This is an exceptional Spitfire that needs very little; great paint; solid mechanicals; a very fun car to drive !  No warranty implied or offered; this is a used car that you will be buying as is.  Very nice British Classic.
