Re: Best type of garage door

I have an old metal up and over.
Hendersons of Durham built it in the 60s.
It has come off the runners a couple of times until I modified it with stop bolts, I would prefer the old wooden left and right opening doors given the choice.

Re: Bullitt Scene - Minor Spot?

At 2 mins 8 seconds to the right I spied an MGA rear end white?
But the one you spotted is a minor convertible I think.

Re: It's the rules,mate.

Our binmen are extremely adept at leaving the bin smack bang in the middle of the drive, that way I always get some exercise, usually in the rain, leaping from the car to put it to one side while I park the motor.
I believe its part of their training.

Defensive driving, just let em go.
Preferably just as you reach the speed cameras, timing is everything.

Re: making a morris engine

I do have an excellent book about "the man who really made the mini" Leonard Lord, he is apparently the father of a lot of automation within BMC building his own multi spindle machines. It was he who dispatched our brightest and best after the war as part of the Marshall plan to rebuild Japan. Shoul...

Re: Stolen EBAY UK

I would add a little something here.
Thieves get away with it in many (not all) cases, because of poor security measures.
No Diskloks, no etched windows, no secret switch etc
Put them of nicking it in the first place and they will leave it alone and we dont need a database quite so critically.

Re: ..and I thought all Morris Minor drivers were nice chaps

My dad owned a morris minor in 1963
He was banned for drink driving in 2003
When he owned a rover
Statistically he still counts.

Re: Hello from north London!

My feeling is a cut off switch is a great idea. But I think he may have destroyed my drivers side door lock first to find it. Visually a disklok says this aint going to be easy chum, and he will walk away, couple that with etched windows and the cars value to the tea leaf plummets,visual prevention ...

I recognise that radiator. Flatter than the Y-type but just as tall. I added a starter hole to mine. I wonder if it came from that very car?ez body1s.jpg
Thats a very nice looking car Rob, British racing green of course.

Re: Hello from north London!

Welcome Seb, I cant help with the gearbox either, but a word in your shell like. Do invest in a disklok, North London is prime stomping ground for stolen Minors. Also you can etch the number plate digits on the windows, also a secret switch somewhere, or if let unattended for a while perhaps get in ...

Re: new carpet set

Indeed the surround matches the colour of the car, as the dashboard and doors internally are also smoke grey blue I thought that would be in keeping.

Re: Expensive Traveller at Aston Workshop.

It appears on the same site you can buy a Morgan 3 wheeler for less than a mini.
I can only think that sadly someone out there has the money and the idiot credentials to spend that kind of dosh on cars that should by rights have people certified and dispatched to the funny farm.

Well I did that and it does look rather swish though I say so myself, downloading photos on this website however has over the years become no easier, I shall persist however.
