Re: Advice please for Nickel Plating

You might care to try something like this:- https://www.carbibles.com/best-chrome-spray-paint/. Don't know if it's any good though as I've never used it myself.

Re: Doris cuts out

Have to say that this experience closely resembles my own 'failure to proceed' experience of a year ago (documented elsewhere on the forum) where a breakdown man spent a great deal of time and effort doing what you describe above, eventually got the car running and followed me home, where it cut out...

Re: SERVO FITMENT

It's probably reasonable to assume that most (virtually all?) Morris Minor drivers these days also drive more recent vehicles, all of which have servos fitted. As a consequence, our reactions are programmed to expect an immediate and reassuring effect at the first light pressure on the brake pedal, ...

Re: White Wall Tyres

Indeed - I tried two 'official' tyre paints that proved to be a waste of money and then had a brainwave and bought in from eBay a good quantity of 'Tippex' typewriting correction fluid that was much better and did work tolerably well but, like the others, succumbed in due course.

Tried that (on an Ariel Leader) - the paint just cracks and falls off.

Re: Clonk

Re: Clonk

Thanks for the tip Paul - it had occurred to me that it might be brakes sticking on but, as I say, it definitely appears to come from front nearside so it seems rather unlikely; also, when I jacked it up to pull the wheel off, I did spin the wheel first and it turned easily.

Clonk

Recently I have become aware of a rather disturbing new noise emitted by my moggie. As soon as I drive off after the car has been standing unused for a day or two there's a pretty loud 'clonk' from somewhere around the nearside front wheel but, after that, no further 'clonking'. A short while ago I ...
