Victoria British Order:
So, what did I buy? I missed the Winter sale by days and it changed my order quite a bit, shifting the big ticket items to Spitbits. Quite a bit of stuff for less than $200.
STONE GUARD SET-CHRME-7" ROUNDMy brother wants these for Belle, I hope for it to be a surprise gift, but if he reads my blog it won't be...
INNER SILL-LH, Back Ordered
INNER SILL-RH Needed to repair the Rocker Panel. Though I'm not sure of the condition under the rusted rockers, for the price, it's not worth not replacing.
ROCKER PANEL END-LH
ROCKER PANEL END-RH
Didn't really need these but if I'm putting on new metal, I should do the job right and not have to do it over... Unfinished and one has a bit of surface rust, it should brush off in paint prep.
LOCATING PIN-HOOD BUFFER PUSHROD FORK NUT A/R FLAT WASHER-SML 5/16 X 5/8 A/R
To replace the one that I am missing... Wonder where it went to...
Another cosmetic necessity. The one on the car was shot, though on trying to remove the windshield frame, it defiantly was still doing it's job...
RUBBER RING-LARGE-3 1/2" A/R
RUBBER RING-SMALL-2" A/R
To be used to replace the rotted out ones on the instruments.
Sometime in the near future I plan to drop the oil pan, clean out any residual gunk and replace the gasket.
GASKET - FUEL PUMP
I ordered both that they have, being in-expensive, just to be sure. I matched one up to my fuel pump so I should be good to go in that respect.
Mine were shot. The replacements seem to be not very well made, but should do the job. Not nearly as thick as the original.
Mine was shot, sucked up rust from the gas tank.
WHEEL STUD FRNT/REAR HUB A/R
Mine was missing one. There is excellent replacement instructions on http://www.totallytriumph.net/spitfire/hard_lesson.shtml
I only needed one, but I'm replacing them as a set to make sure it looks right... I may sell the lonely one on e-bay later, or keep it as potential swapping material...
ORIGINAL PUBLICATIONS CD CWE
One of the greatest things I've seen in a long time. I plan to work with it to hopefully create a few spreadsheets to help catalog my car better. It's in an encrypted format and is driving me to drink. It won't work on anything past XP due to the dinky front end program, you can't copy the files off for my backup storage as it demands the original CD. Copying the CD for backup purposes failed miserably. Sorta frustrating, but I don't really blame them in trying to protect their information but it makes what I want to do more difficult. Really, if you don't have it, buy it. If you do have it, get someone else to buy it. Promote the cause!
RUBBER SEAL-CHECK STRAP
One side was missing, the other side was painted red. I will need to replace both.
PIN KIT A/R Back-order
Needed to replace the pins I drilled out on the door Check Strap.
SG.58 CATALOG - SPRING 2010
It's always good to have another catalog. My puppy, Snickers, decided he didn't like the one I got from my brother and shredded it one day. I walked into the house to little bits of the catalog EVERYWHERE. No single page survived his wrath!
