Some pics of my 63 MKII Sprite. I started resoring this in 1978 but due to career and family commitments didn't get it on the road until june 2002. My son made the dash in high school wood shop... he wasn't even born when I started this project!

This Sprite has was my father's since the early 60's. in 1990 I painted it midnight blue with 2 white stripes and a pearl overlay. It has sat since then waiting on me to finish it. I did little things over the years but starting this year I replaced all the brake cylinders, rebuild the master cylinder, stripped and repainted the interior. Install all new rubber parts and numerous other bits. Lets just say I have been keeping Moss Motors and British Victoria in business.
I am now looking at converting the front drum brakes to disc (I am in need of these parts). I would also like to move up to a 1275 with a 5 speed transmission (still looking for one). It currently has the stock 948cc engine which is running suprisingly strong for sitting for 18 years. I still need to rebuild the SU's but they are doing a pretty good job as they sit.
Please leave your comments, advise, etc.. I would certainly appreciate it!
