Re: Steves Morris Traveller 1970

Iv just ordered the sills and a pillar cover panel. I hope the pillar cover you have ordered is better than the ones I ordered from one of the major suppliers of Minor parts ( :D ) some time ago. Mine were totally useless :evil: . They were so far from the correct shape that it was impractical to t...

Re: Paaro - Morris Minor 1000 1957 4 door restoration

Umm i was gonna jack it up and place some old wheels and tyres next to the wheels so they tip onto it. Then support at the back of the front door. Never done it before tho! Think you might beat me as iv only just ordered the sills i want to get in place first.

Re: Paaro - Morris Minor 1000 1957 4 door restoration

Oh ideal im just getting mine ready for tip over onto old tyres aswell. Shame that gearbox tunnel turned into a problem so quickly. Maybe cut it out abit smaller and remount it differently? Tho im happy to have the access to the chassis legs. Really looking forward to seeing your progress.

Re: Steves Morris Traveller 1970

Well we have some progress! Back panels fitted. Having to really tidy up the o/s due to the welder having a leak. Couple of places needed rewelding but all good. Iv just ordered the sills and a pillar cover panel. Im leaving the o/s boxing panel as it requires no welding. Had to order the bits as it...

Re: New member with moggie

Looking good. Whats your plan for the painting? Iv gotta put metal back before i can paint. Iv use chassis black, which has lasted well on other cars. Still perfect when primed properly.
