Constant Velocity

First off, I want to give an apology for not updating the blog for such a long period of time. There has been so much going on in my life the past couple of weeks its been hard to stay focused on this project. Most of my free time recently has either been spent with…

Deadlines

I’ve spent whatever time I have dedicated this week on the Triumph to putting my frame back together. My solution is simple, take a 2″ x 2″ piece of angle steel, tig weld end caps onto it and weld it back into place. For once, I’m actually decently pleased with my tig welding. Unfortunately for…

How to Mount a Motor

It has been an insanely busy week working on the car but also incredibly productive. My goal was to get the motor and transmission mounted in the car so I can finally take them off of the hoist. I can happily say that with some help from friends, my goal was successfully accomplished last night….

Re-Mounting

With the frame being nearly complete, the next step with the car is getting the new drive train fitted. I’ve been contacting several people who have done the same swap to their cars, each individual doing their swap slightly differently. I have been chatting with Steve once again with his Miata swapped Spitfire and he…
