1962-1970* Spitfire Bonnet Lift kit


P1207 Triumph Spitfire Bonnet Lift Kit (62-70): $79.95

Everyone knows how heavy and awkward the Spitifire Bonnet is. And a few of us have even been "clam-shelled" under it! So treat yourself and your bonnet to this marvelous new Bonnet Lift Kit!

Two powerful gas springs will now make lifting your bonnet a thing of ease! The initial lifting force is substantially reduced, and after opening only a portion, the springs take over completely and raise your bonnet Fully Open.

Plus your bonnet now has Even Support, and there is No risk of it crashing down.

Lowering the bonnet is so much better, too! The weight does not build and build like before, but instead you "pull" the bonnet down and then lower it for only the last portion while the springs help counterbalance the weight!

This cleverly engineered design requires NO DRILLING. Custom fabricated brackets and ball studs fasten to existing geometry. Gas Springs have even been custom made for just this application--they are not "off the shelf."

Treat yourself and your Spitfire to a little luxury!

*This Kit (#P1207) will actually fit beyond the 1970 model year; it will fit through 1978 (when the factory changed to the slanted radiator). However we recommend it only for the Mark 1-Mark 3 models (1962-1970). We make a different Kit (#P1212) for 1970-1980 "square tail" Spitfires that mounts to the frame and can accommodate Euro air hoses.


"Just installed my lift kit...it was too easy to install and it works too well...something must be wrong.... If you think you don't need this, you are wrong. The engineering is spot on and the install was a breeze. Hats off to this and the folks involved!”
