Since heart surgery I watch the ingredients. Quorn is good and versatile and has the added bonus of much increased flatulence. Makes one sound more like a Morris Minor on occasion.

Re: Car painting with spray cans

You can get most spray can finishes to a good finish by colour sanding, compounding and polishing. But it’s a hell of a lot of work and an expensive way to buy paint.

Your throttle return spring is also looking tired, if that breaks the results can be a little more hair raising !, may be worth swapping that out as well.
If that happens at least there is the option to turn off the ignition on most moggies without locking up the steering.

Re: Finally got a car! TMK807F

Thanks for the replies. After seeing some very poor cars for good money, I have bought from Charles Wares. Had the car up in the air at a friend's garage today and am very pleased. Lots of new parts on suspension, steering and brakes. New exhaust and tyres. Yes you pay a price, but for someone like...

Re: Wing Mirror Position

It is up to the OP whether they fit the mirror or not but in my experience making a hole anywhere along the top of the Minor front wing is a bad move. The main problem with fitting a mirror to the top of a front wing of a Morris Minor is that it is right above the wheel and gets bombarded with thro...

Mine is 1957 and riveted. Did the change not happen when the oil filler cap changed from metal to plastic ?
Quite possibly. But hard to get an authoritative answer. Somebody somewhere must know.

Rocker cover labels - rivet or stick?

Anyone know the history of stick-on versus pop-rivitted rocker cover labels?

Years and models?

Edit button seems to have disappeared from some threads / back again on some threads :roll:

Possibly editing is for a limited time, or until there is a reply. It’s common on some forums to prevent people trolling by changing the meaning of their original post.

One of my fathers favourite questions was the whereabouts of the choke on a Model T .
A bit of wire that stuck out of the front as I recall?

By the way, the buttons seem to have vanished from Private Messages. They're still there Brian, just shrunk in the wash so you can't read them. :D If you hover over them with a mouse, it you''re on a computer rather than a 'device' then the function is displayed.

Re: Indicator

Well in the early days of motoring, manufacturers were not even consistent about pedal positions.

The model T has three pedals, but the one on the right is the brake, the middle one selects reverse and the one on the left is a clutch and gear shift.

We don’t have it too bad these days 😊

Re: What are the Steps of painting .

Hi Sandun.

You might want to think about painting the whole wing. If you paint just the sanded bit, it’s going to show, unless you get a perfect colour and texture match.

Are you using a paint gun or rattle cans? There are a lot of videos on YouTube showing the best way to use each.
