Side-Valve Engine sump plugs available again

Folks, Moss Europe have the brass Sump Plugs (fit both the engine sump and gearbox drain plug) back in stock. The price has gone up a bit from earlier in the year (about a quid) but, more importantly, they have the copper crush washers in stock too. Certainly the "London" outlet has 80 washers in st...

Re: Alloy Kick panels

Hi, this should be made up of 2 pieces of metal and not the one you have. The parts are (1) sloped kick plate (2) sill/cill finisher. IMG_20191114_172657.jpg The shiny part is the original aluminium kick plate, the black part is the finisher, which would be body coloured. Now for what my passenger s...

Re: Alloy Kick panels

They are to be left as bare alloy. I have original ones (March 1951) on the black car in the signature picture and they are "bare". Later ones were made from steel and were painted "silver", but most cars have them painted in "body colour" as the reason for "silver" had been forgotten. My Traveller ...

Re: Split-screen chrome surround on eBay??

An impressive effort so far, Hear hear. I too think that the MMOC would have enough funds to get someone to tool up and manufacture rare items. It was ordinary members that got side-valve engine sump plugs and Series MM gear-knobs manufactured, but where are the items now? I sounded out ESM about g...

Re: Series MM wheel rims required

Well the wheel has been fitted back on the car but, alas, the fitters did do a bit of damage to the plastic protector shroud - a piece of the lip is missing! It also looks to be at a slight angle. Damaged new shroud.jpg I think I'll have to find another company to do any future work, even though all...

Re: Series MM wheel rims required

Phill, Thank you for the guidance. As I'm not doing the fitting, myself, I'm relying on the fitter to get the alignment correct. With the plastic guide in place what can go wrong :roll: Will be collecting that wheel this morning and another member will be supplying more rims (but we won't know their...

Thank you very much "Stillgotmyf1stcar".
I was hoping to find the thread and post in it, in case, the person that had the pulley read it again - sigh.

Re: Series MM wheel rims required

I've done some work on the 2 rims that are currently off the car, but one still has some high spots (can't remove with just a powered steel wire brush). Below is Rim 2 images as "before", "brushed" and "painted" - note the "lumps/high spots" 3 stages rim 2.jpg Rim 1 fared a bit better, but the metal...
