Spitfire Restoration

Welcome to the Classic-Cars-Online Restoration Project. This series of articles will chart the progress of a restoartion of a MK IV Spitfire.

| Part 1 | | Part 2 | | Part 3 | | Part 4 | | Part 5 | Part 6 |
| Part 7 || Part 8 | Part 9 |

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, my main problem is lack of time and money but I hope to solve both these problems soon and get this project completed..
