Hi

Clive( ikon) is a very talented engineer, and has built lots and lots of kits.

So Between the both of us, we are making more improvments , like internal door hinges , plus nice working bonnet hinges and bonnet catch.

This is just a few improvements , that will help the Miglia spyder customers build
the kit faster, and will takes alot of the stress of the workings out things like panel fitment and makes the whole build more enjoyable kit to build.

You can still fit the the external hinges if you like , but it will give more choices.

So all in all making an even better kit all round.

My Vitesse chassis didn't have a number stamped into it, and I inspected every inch of the chassis while I was sandblasting it. Like Mike says, it's all on the little alloy plate on the side of the bulkhead. Having said that, one builder did put up a photo of a number stamped into their chassis, so it'd be worth searching for one, but I wouldn't worry if you can't find it as it probably doesn't exist.

175/80/14's are a good choice - they'll fit with a bit of 'adjustment' to the front bulkhead (delicate application of lateral torque with a lump hammer), they look period correct and are easily and cheaply available as they're standard fit on budget spec VW's, Seats and Skodas. You won't need to lower the suspension so much to achieve 'the look' either, with the positive benefit of some proper ground clearance.

This is my car on its 175/80/14's yesterday -



Best of luck.

Citroen 2CV door hinges work really well for doors, bonnets and boot lids.
Not only do they work but there cheap as well
