A spit tour of the south of france sounds like an excellent idea
to me. Many wonderful back roads...
I've done a couple of 1800 mile road trips (in the western U.S.)
in my spit, and carried a fairly modest supply of tools and parts.
Fluids (oil, water, brake fluid)
Small socket set
Couple of screw drivers.
A few bits of wire and hose.
Duct tape + electrical tape
You might want to get in touch with the french spitfire group
Having contacts for a few members might help you locate
parts or an LBC mechanic if you do get into trouble, and you
can probably meet some interesting folks along the way.
Enjoy your trip :-)
