Re: positive to negative earth

Thanks for that have been into the previous posts and it looks like an easy swap. There is no mention of changing the solenoid leads or the fuel pump. Do these have to be done?

Re: Dash panel removal

Thanks for the reply. No I'm not going to paint the whole car that has been done already but who ever painted it before and they did a good job didn't do the panel. I shall have to have another think on what to do with it, I may be able to paint it in situ with a lot of masking. Thanks again for the...

Dash panel removal

I would like to remove the dash panel on my 1968 minor to repaint it. Is it a difficult job? How do I go about it? Advice would be appreciated.

Re: Radial Tyres - Help

All Metropolitan police pandas were fitted with crossply tyres but I cannot vouch for the other forces. I changed my pandas crossplys for Bridgestones and the difference was remarkable would never go back to crossplys.

Re: Seat straps

All metropolitan police Morris minor pandas were fitted with diaphragms to the front seats to cope with large policemans bottoms. Mine still has the original ones fitted and show no signs of wear.

Re: Not what they used to be!

I remember back in the late 40s or early 50s a scrap yard on the Leatherhead road in Chessington where the owner allowed my mate and I to wander round and sit in the various old vehicles including model A Fords and an old London transport bus but the best one was a second world war Hawker Hurricane ...

Re: What would your dream garage look like?!

My friends garage in Cape Cod. The stairs at the back lead to a viewing gallery. He belongs to The British car club in the USA. I' always very envious when i go to visit him. He has two other garages with post lifts and a series one Landrover.

I agree with Firedrake its a disciplinary offence to use the PNC for unauthorised use. You could become a cowboy wheel clamper the DVLA give out all personnel details to them.
