After a move to California it was decided that a 2 seater convertible was in order. I found a great deal on a 1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500. The car ran and drove excellent but certainly needed work. Here are a few photos of when I got the car.
Overall the car was in good shape, however the interior was in need of some serious rework. I ordered a new set of seat covers, foams, and a full carpet set.
While waiting for parts to arrive I made some progress on the paint. First step was clay bar, then two stages of buffing with a pad and compound. It really brought some life back to it.
Finally the parts have arrived! Now the seat rebuild and carpet changing begins. As always, it’s best said with pictures.
I’m really happy with how the interior turned out. Combined with some shiny paint it’s ready for some coastal highway cruising!
