Re: Steves Morris Traveller 1970

Re: Traveller Restoration

What you are doing and have done is really good, especially the pictures, they show how to do it, rather than read and have a go,as a visual learner this is very useful to me,
good luck and keep welding ! :D

Chassis legs appear on ebay from time to time, I managed to buy one for £46 in April, it was unused. New these cost about £100 plus VAT, floor pans also come up , if you have the time to wait for the parts, it can save you money.
