Re: Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

Hi,
Thanks for the replies.

I can't believe I forgot about the existence of stone chip paint. I think that would be perfect.

I admit the depth was a guess from looking at it, now on actually measuring it I see it is indeed around 2mm. Somehow it looked so much deeper.

Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

Hi, Over the years with various areas being welded I've lost areas of the interior factory-original sound proofing material (I presume it's bitumen?). Since the material once covered the floors from the front right the way to the back through the box section and up under the rear seat as one contino...

Re: Removing set filler from a rubber handled screwdriver?

Thanks mogbob, sounds like a good solution to try - shame my chisel also got a bit covered by the stuff too :D

philthehill, where's the fun in that?! (also that would cut into my limited remaining budget too much).

Removing set filler from a rubber handled screwdriver?

Hi,
Has anyone got any suggestions for removing hardened filler from a rubber handled screwdriver from both the handle and metal blade without damaging the screwdriver?

Thanks,

Re: Car Ramps - What weight do I need?

Thanks for the responses, I thought the 2.5T would be a safe bet but figured I'd check.

While it would be nice to get those cjautos' ones my budget is a maximum of £35 so I doubt I'll find any of those within my budget.

Car Ramps - What weight do I need?

Hi, I'm looking at buying a pair of car ramps for my cars (MM and MX-5) and wondered what weight capacity I should be looking at for the ramps. The ones I've found that come with low profile extensions (required for the MX-5) are 2.5 Tonne which I presume means 1.25 Tonne per ramp and I take it that...

Re: Is this the original carpet?

Thanks for the reply. I did wonder about the piping myself. The carpets I've seen for sale have never had grey piping on them except on Newton Commercial carpets which these look nothing like (or at least nothing like my new ones I bought from them recently) so I'd wondered if grey piping = genuine ...

Is this the original carpet?

Hi, This is something I've kept meaning to ask on here and never got round to it. When I bought my car the interior was original, however I was never too sure of the carpets (they are in much better condition than the rest of the interior, though the pile is disintegrating). Looking online I read th...

Re: Duotone fabric suppliers? (by the meter fabric?).

Hi,
Thanks for the response. I didn't think it was ordinary vinyl though (unlike the porcelain green sections) as it has a rippled effect to the material.
Thanks,

Duotone fabric suppliers? (by the meter fabric?).

Hi, Does anyone know if it's possible to buy just the white-ish fabric that makes up duotone and do they know of a supplier who can sell by the meter? My door panels are in decent condition but one panel has a rip to the above mentioned fabric and I'd prefer not to buy a whole new door panel if I ca...

Q. About 4 door sizes.

Hi,
Did the size of doors for the four door models ever change? I have a '63/4 car in need of four new doors and have found some from a '58 year minor, so would these be okay?

Thanks,
Chief :)

The resolution would be too bad, except for places where you can zoom to street level and then you'd need to know precisely where a morris minor would always be parked, because of google earth always being out of date.

as Rob says, a picture from the top pointing down.

A picture of a 2-door would probably be fine if anyone has one.

Anyone got any birds-eye/shell views of 4 door saloons?

Hi, Strange request here, I wondered if anyone had any top-down birds-eye photographs of a 4 door 1000, with the camera focused around about the very centre of the top of the roof. Reason I'm asking is I'm attempting to make a 3d model of a Minor, but the only top down view I've found so far is an e...

Average costs of garage gutter repair jobs.

Hi, I wondered what the usual average charge (since garages all have different rates) was for a garage to cut away the old guttering, cure the rust along the roof area that meets the doors (the rust sadly spreads past where the standard guttering finishes) and put in the new guttering. Thanks, Chief.
