Re: Brittax L471 Lenses

I visit what is left of the Britax factory in Bridlington from time to time, through my job supplying engineering parts. They still make lenses but were bought out by Ecco of Leeds where most production now takes place, https://www.eccoesg.co.uk/gb/en/products/Beacons they are specialists now in amb...

Re: Morris auction

First and most likely, a deceased estate sale where contents of house,

Understood and that did cross my mind.
I get the same sad feeling when I discover some vinyl in a charity shop that clearly was a collection.
My kids have already claimed my collection, little vultures :roll: .

Re: Minor roadster

You need really to post this to the custom and modified register on the first page, I am sure they can help.
From a value point of view be prepared to accept there is a limited market for modified minors.
By customising it you reduce your potential market when you do come to sell it.

Re: Morris auction

Did you bid? No, I was looking for a couple of old chairs for a specific area of the house when I stumbled across it just last night. I just thought they may have gotten a better response elsewhere, our very own website for instance. I dont have room for two and cant summon up the courage to sell D...

Re: Fitting seat belts in a factory built 1960 convertible

I dont know if it matters to everybody, but I fitted standard none inertia reel 3 point belts to the rear, pre tensioners were first introduced in Mercedes in 1981 I think.
They were not difficult to fit as existing holes took the mounts in the main.
It just felt more period.

Re: boot rack

Thanks for that, in the end I bought one from ESM that is universal and clips on the sides of the boot. For the uninitiated the stud bolts need shortening before fitting. Anyway its fitted and now I am getting leather straps to hold down the picnic basket. It should look period, which is what I want...

Re: What did Morris get wrong originally?

Indeed, the first huge marketing clanger was to call it Leyland in the first place. Leyland were truck builders, very good truck builders, but thats not an epithet you want attached to your shiny new saloon is it ? With reference to cost cutting through standardisation, Lucas begged all the British ...

Re: What did Morris get wrong originally?

In my opinion they didnt really get too much wrong, given the conditions they were asked to work in. The government of the day however have a lot to answer for. To instruct Austin, led by Leonard "ill tear that bloody place apart brick by brick" Lord, who hated Morris with a passion, to merge fully ...

Re: Dash cam and reversing cam

I have a combined unit in my daily Honda.
As long as you have a negative earth on the Morris I wouldnt have thought you would have any problems.
The stickers alone displayed in my car act like magic, pushing oncoming tail gaiters well back.
Mine is a nextbase duo hd.
No problems so far.

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.

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.
