Re: Sort out

Early’70’s I think. They were ancient then! Presumably dug out from ww2 stocks.

Re: STORAGE SPACE

The great thing about the Minor shelves is that they’re so frail that they won’t break your legs in the event of a sudden stop... now the equivalent item on my beetle is of such outstanding quality that it would be guaranteed to sever all lower extremities! That’s why it’s been removed. Halfrauds us...

Re: Tyres

Ha ha...depends on your view on originality, driveability etc! Lots of opinions have cropped up on here over the years. I’ve got 155 radials on the trav, and 165 radials on the saloon ( on suitable van rims). Works for me :D

Re: Owners handbook anyone

The original minor owners workshop manual is the best,in my opinion. I love it’s strange (in 2020) traditional English. The Haynes manual is quite useful but not completely accurate. I believe they can both be found online, but original copies are easily found at reasonable cost.

Re: 803cc to 1098cc Swap

I’d be interested in a good 803, as a spare for my A30.
Parts are getting harder to find, so I’ve started hoarding.. :lol:

Re: Damp

For years I’ve used (fresh!) cat litter, tied up in an old sock. Absorbs damp efficiently and easily regenerated in a warm place.
