Re: Traveller Rolling Tipping

Oh really il leave the wheels on then. Then remove the axle. Just worried about it bending as they do. Tho it was moved and driven without the wood attached so the damage may already be done. Sort of wish i stuck with the saloon idea but once this is welded im sure it will be ok and like working on ...

Re: Traveller Rolling Tipping

Now you've got the axle off, the main concern is not distorting the B pillars. A couple of diagonal braces from the top of each pillar to the bottom of the opposite ones should keep the shape. You're moving very fast for someone who keeps playing down his abilities! Im really not moving fast. Mange...

Do i just cut out the covers repair the inner sills then weld the new panels on? Im capable of doing...

Re: Another minor id for sale! When is it going to stop?

Oo could save loads of hours welding for someone. Unfortunately its the same with the land rovers, they put series plates on defenders and claim they're hybrids. Beetles aswell. My cousin said its the same with Minis. Hard for them to police unfortunately.

Mines registered 01/01/1970 so iv got over 4 years to go. Did they actually register it that day? Or just put it down as that? My birth is the 01/01/1991 lol.

Hi Neil, just wanted to say your build is amazing, been following it long before i got a minor. Mines nowhere near as bad as yours was. My finish wont be as good as yours partly because its generally in good/excellent condition for its age and id like to keep it that way. I dont really have any mone...
