Is that a MK II or a MKIII? My VIN is about 2800 before yours and I was told it was a MKIII. Regardless you have a awesome looking car, only hope mine looks that nice when I am done with the rebuild.

Kevin - you are right! I believe mine is a Mark III. I must have failed to hit the 'I' button enough times, or perhaps didn't have enough coffee. Thanks for the compliment! You might have noticed that I swapped the rear axle and front stub axles to put minilights on a wire wheel car. Are you doing a stock rebuild, or including mods? I am working on a DIY, no-tune EFI setup that I'll keep you posted on if you like. By the way, I will soon be offering a high-quality, rear-disc brake conversion kit for Spridgets that costs less than 30% of what's out there. If you're interested in learning about the product launch, please send me your email address.

Hey Joel... I plan on doing a semi-stock rebuild. I have some ideas that I hope I can make happen. I want it to look original to the untrained eye, but have some of the better enhancements to make it safer and more pleasurable to ride. Keep me up-to-date on your disc brake conversion, it will be a while till I get there so the timing might be good. I need to slow down on spending the money on it which in turn means slowing down on the work.

I had the same goal, actually. My car invariably starts (Pertronix ignition + updated gear reduction starter + 12V alternator conversion - simple and cheap), and has the Rivergate 5-speed (so goes on highway). I will let you know about the conversion, which if things go well should be incredibly cheap but very nice looking. Let me know if you have any questions as you go forward. I have replaced or repaired every thing on the car, so I'll help if I can. Take care and keep up the good work!
