Re: Spotted today.

As you say, everybody to their own. Convertibles particularly are prone to water ingress, which one of these vehicles was. Hence my comment.

Re: Spotted today.

Saw two minors today travelling on the North Mundham/Runcton section of the road between Bognor and Chichester, around midday today, within 5 minutes of each other! First one was a smart E reg? cream convertible with a red hood, and the next one going in the same direction, a saloon with a JJJ regis...

Re: Another insurance question

Try RH classic insurance on 01277 206911. My last minor was £78 fully comp with breakdown cover, and if you unfortunately write the car off, they give you the salvage back for free!

Re: Total Loss Salvage Value process

FYI - RH insurance actually give you the salvage vehicle back FOC if your classic is written off with them. Doesn't help in this case, but if you are unfortunate to have a write off, it sure saves a lot of hassle and heartache.

Re: Removing the kick plates

If you have taken the two self tappers out towards the top of the kickplate, that leaves four or five nuts and bolts nestling under the channel below the door aperture. These can be pigs and clamp the kickplate tight. If all bolts loosened the kickplate can slide upwards as the ' holes' are in fact ...

Re: Last post.

Chris, sorry to hear you're leaving the group site. You will be sorely missed by many. I still want to get hold of the info book you were compiling, if possible.
Good luck for the future Chris, and don't let the bas***ds grind you down!! :wink:

Re: Insurance

Over the years, I have never had an issue at all with RH. They're great! Latest Minor was £67 plus insurance tax £9.38. I also had legal expenses cover as an extra option at £9.38. The breakdown cover is included in the insurance premium, and also if the car is written off, they pay out and give the...

Re: Well Hello There....

The vehicle is shown on DVLA site as a black Morris registered 23rd March 1971 on MOT page. No further MOT record, so not been MOT'd since 2006, at least. You can at least apply for a replacement reg document as they do have a record of it. Wait until you have any further comments, as the cab may ha...

Re: Well Hello There....

Welcome Steve! You live in a great place! I used to live at Hogley Farm, just off the climb out of Holmfirth on the A635 over Saddleworth Moor. What details have you got for the car? Reg number, car 'chassis' number, body number (top right of bulkhead under bonnet). All those can date the car, but D...

Re: Previous history - BAN 715C

It may still be under renovation as it is shown as SORN on DVLA. No MOT record, so probably not yet been back on the road.

Re: identification Series MM 1951

I have seen untidy stampings on the minor bulkhead numbers , so I wouldn't worry about it. I think they were probably hand stamped. From the photo it looks to read SMM 111357. That would make it a 1951 car, which you state it is. If all the other numbers appear to fit 1951 too, then you have no prob...

Re: Anyone seen 7409 CZ

DVLA still have it listed, but not taxed or MOT'd since 2010. Colour shows as blue, not grey, in their details.
