Its been a while since i have done any work on the Spit. I have been in
school and no time on weekends becuase of work. But in a week or two i have a
week of and i am dedicating htat week to working on the car. I am rolling her
into the garage, dropping hte engine in and going from there.
I do have a few questions for y'all though.
1.) As of right now i have no keys for the car. When i am trying to start it
for the first time should i just hotwire it? or should i spend the money to
get a new set of keys and ignition?
2.) I was talking to a fella during last seasons auto-x, and he was saying that
he didn't do any welding on his car. He found some other compound that was
just as good as welding but it was just a very strong glue or something. Has
anyone heard of this? tried this? results? I have access to a welder, but i
have never tried it before andi have to do some major work on the rockerpanels
and get the floors in. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
3.) Body work Question. The PO did most of the external body work before he
gave it to me. The front of the bonnet had a good size dent in it so he just
filled it with bondo. He also filled all the little holes for the "Triumph"
lettering on the front. I was thinking about trying to knock the dent out from
the inside and remove all the bondo and start over. is this a good idea? or
should i just leave it as is? Again, body work is something i have never
really done before (I am mostly an engine guy).
Again, any advice and suggeestions are welcome.
