Asked by Jun 30, 2009 at 09:08 AM about the 1980 Triumph Spitfire

Question type: Car Customization

Hello, i am currently in the middle of a year long Frame-up restoration of a 1980 triumph spitfire 1500. The metal body had some very alarming pockets of rust in the usual places; the rocker pannels and battery case, as well as the shelf behind the engine. Instead of getting the metal work done on the body which costs a fairly substantial amount, I was wondering if anyone knew where to find a fiberglass shell that would fit the frame. Or even if anyone knew what shells would be interchangeable. I've heard and seen jaguar, dunebuggy, and volkswagon shells fitting onto the frame, but i have not been able to find any sites that might sell these. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
