It does donuts and 8's in the parking lot really nice. Drove it around but didnt get to far from the shop. That green radiator and all the reddish crap from an over heated engine worry me a little. It'll need a complete exhaust and a complete interior redone. and Im just getting started.
It has a nice, new webber on it, and it really runs like a champ. so as soon as you start driving it you forget about all that and start smiling immediately. Then a tire smoking fish tail or two around a corner and your actually laughing.

Looks like a fun project. They did handle like a skate board.

Look at the bright side. It won't take a lot of paint.

I forgot they went to those funcky 5 mph bumpers in the 70's. Is there an easy way to replace them with nerf bars or something a little more pleasing to the eye?

Here is a few photos of the last similar car that I have touched, my God it's a life time ago, that's my son working on it, he turned 36 last week! I started this Sprite at my shop and then when I closed the shop finished it at home. So the photo of it painted is in my back yard. It was the only car I did after I closed my shop.

When I was just 17 around 1976 or so my dad worked for "Hayward Auto Imports" on a used car lot covered with cars like your Triumph. I drove those suckers all the time! He drove them home and I drove them on the weekends. I have fond memories of spinning donuts, oh yeah!

Yep, I am a bit Jealous, driving that every day would be a blast!

Way ahead of ya ,John, I got plans for those ugly bumpers.
I do have 2qts of SPI red left over from another job. The only problem is Im torn between it and British racing green. SPI red would look better but the trimph guys might just hunt me down.

It'll be a hard one to sell thats for sure.
The dang thing seems made for abuse. "fun" not the same feeling you get in a hotrod but just as exciting maybe more so. You wouldn't be doing donuts in a 40 ford coupe but the feeling you get from driving a 40 ford or a sports car is like explaining sex to a virgin.

I just bought this HELIX high heat coating. The instructions are very clear.

1 bake at 200 degrees and let cool.
2 bake at 400 degrees and let cool.
3 bake at 600 degrees and let cool
Warning! Keep away from heat.
