So after a long absence, when other projects were completed, my tools being stolen again, then there was Covid 19 lock down, I am back with my build.
This time I have replaced my Spitfire Chassis with a Vitesse Chassis which had been dry stored for thirty years. In great condition as my picture will show.
I had to exchange all my previously renovated parts in order to get this great chassis so the strip down, clean and replace worn out areas has begun.

Welcome back, Carib - it's only been six years!

The longer chassis is a good move, it will really improve the proportions of the finished car. Can't wait to see some more progress

Hi Carib,
Great to read that you’re resuming your build. It would be great to have another Miglia thread on the forum. I agree with MrT, the longer chassis will improve the look of the car.
Looking forward to following the progress of your build.

Cheers, D.

Where is the year going. Didn't seem that long that I re started my build but its been 3 very quick moths.
So an update:
New thoughts on the engine and have obtained a MX5 Donor. Yes change in direction but should have as much power going to the wheels.
Stripped most of the Donor, including some of the trans tunnel.
All wiring loom with ECU, and of course the gearbox.
Hope the rear end can keep up or there may be another rethink.
