Spitfire MK IV Restoration project

Welcome to the Classic-Car-Magazine Restoration Project. This series of articles will chart the progress of my restoration of a MK IV Spitfire. The car was bought as a rolling restoration but as with all things, once you start to take bits off you get carried away. Click on any of the images and it will take you to the relevant section of the Spitfire restoration.

Whilst this series of articles are by no means a guide to restoring they do provide an insight into many of the problems faced when attempting to restore a classic.
