Clint, I'm excited about your build! I've been looking at an MG Midget as my donor car (I found 3 on craigslist in this area for under $500). Keep going with it, I'll be following along!

Are you trying to utilize your Spitfire fan to blow the hot air around? I'd love to know how you do that. I don't think it's impossible, I just haven't tried measuring stuff out yet.

Thanks :-) I'm hoping to post progress at least once a week.

Good luck in the search. I was on Craig's list, autotrader.com, and cars.com for two months searching "convertible", "mgb", "spitfire", "miata", etc.. etc... trying to find my car.


As far as the heater goes, I'm not sure how exactly I'm going to do it. Being in Phoenix the heater is pretty much dead last on my todo :-)

Hey, without an ICE under the hood, you won't have a bunch of engine compartment heat blasting you through all the drafty cracks in the fire wall all summer. Now there's an improvement!
