Spitfire has no outriggers or side rails , Herald does ..but I agree pointless argument when you are modifying anyway ...12" stretch is a lot and I'd say too much to go unnoticed ...but its buyers / builders choice really ...Id probably think about starting with a Spartan ..Triumph based box section chassis cars are about 95" wheelbase , so there's your 12" you need and logbook will say Spartan and denote is as a kit build so any little mods you need to do would go undetected ..
