Re: Minor Identification Booklet

I'm sure it is going to be worth waiting for Chris. I'm looking forward to seeing it in due course and all your efforts are appreciated.

Cheers

Re: Minor Identification Booklet

Me too please Chris.

If you are still needing Adderley Park vehicle numbers, let me know. I can get details for a couple of late vans.

Thanks

Woman finishes Aberdeen to Cape Town Morris Minor trip http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-n ... d-46855110

She made it successfully at the weekend. Not too surprising really, it was the right car for the job !

Re: Lowlight saloon on ebay

This new set of photos is certainly more revealing than the previous ones. Definitely looks like a big job, but it seems straight and importantly, not messed around with. Hopefully someone will take it on and bring it back to life. Would be a shame to see it broken for spares.

Re: Lowlight saloon on ebay

It looks fairly complete and original but a bit crispy.

There were a range of values suggested for it, ranging from "whatever someone will pay for it" to the optimistic " ask £5000 for it" interested to watch and see what it makes.

Re: Parcel shelf

I recently fitted a new parcel shelf to a 66 saloon and the rear of the shelf was fixed to the bulkhead with a number of large screws (similar to those holding the gearbox cover on) into tapped holes rather than rivets.

Re: 1966 4 door saloon - Galashiels

Morning all

As this one is local to me, I popped across this morning for a look. The car has now been sold so is no longer available.

Re: Anniversary Celebration

Thanks for uploading the photos. Looks like a great day despite the weather and a good turnout of cars. Shame it was so far from Scotland, I would have loved to attend.

Re: door cards

Hi Rob Many thanks for the two links for the suppliers. I don't suppose you know whether either of them supply a beige vinyl that is anywhere close to matching the original MM beige ? Everything available seems to be a very bright beige rather than the deeper yellow beige of the original cars. Thank...

Re: door cards

Hi John My copy of the magazine came in last week and I quickly scanned your article. Looking forward to reading it in more detail. Looks like a big challenge but it will be fantastic when it's finished. In some ways, a whole new interior may be easier than trying to match old and new. A complete in...

Re: door cards

Hi John I mentioned the other week that I had received a sample of MM beige vinyl from Newton Commercial. I have now compared it with the original door cards from the car and whilst the actual colour is not a great match, the pattern of the vinyl is quite good and looks like original. If you were re...

Re: door cards

Hi John I received a sample, in beige, yesterday from Newton Commercial so I can compare with my interior. I only need the door cards, the rest of the interior is really good, so I want something that looks like a reasonable match. From a first glance, it looks ok but not exact. I'll compare the sam...

Re: door cards

Hi Nickol, Thanks for the link, these are the sort of door cards I was looking for. I was vaguely aware of these being available from NC. I was really hoping to find some original ones to match the original interior which has nicely aged. These new door cards may not match too well being new but goo...

Re: door cards

In the same vein as Johnno and JohnV, if anyone has or knows where to get a set of door cards in beige for an early 50 saloon, I'd be very interested. The rest of the interior is in great condition and has lovely patina but the material on the door cards is torn and frayed around the edges. In the a...

Re: NMP (Nuffield Metal Products) plates

Thanks for the update firedrake. A shame the company decided to do a bit extra and galvanise the plates. There's always a setback somewhere along the line ! If there is an additional cost from using aluminium, I don't mind paying a bit extra to cover the cost of the new material as it does look a mu...
