I can’t say my Spitfire story is all that unique; I’ve always loved the look of the Spitfire but could never really afford the time to have one or rebuild one until recently. I looked all over and found several to choose from, some way beyond my skill level, and finally one that met my needs. My son and I are currently cleaning, sanding, and replacing in prep for repainting, which we plan to do ourselves. I didn’t know it was the 50th anniversary of the Spitfire but it seems fitting to give it a rebirth this year as well as a great chance for my son and I to bond a bit more over this project.
Good luck to all Spitfire owners.
