for easy to reach places, try using one of those bottles for cleaning windows or spraying plants. it works as long as you keep it hot., but for box sections (the places that matter) something with a bit of kick is what you want.

yeah, the most common question we get is does it still have those stick out indicators? (trafficators). One day I will be able to say yes, instead of explaining the entire morris history to them. the last time a guy a petrol station kept me there for 45mins!!! I only wanted £5 worth!!

Hi all Im back, and I didnt mean it. I really like MM's just envious of you all. Here's something for originality, when MM side valves stopped production and changed to the 803 OHV some of these early cars still had MM back axles to use up stocks. I wonder how they handled?

''It's about time you concentrated on a proper Morris Minor, not the ugly highlight ones. '' What? Although I own a 1000, the highlight mm's are not ugly! And are anything but lowlights proper minors?!!!
If thats the case im in the wrong club. OK lowlights are nice, but the highlights are as well.

Are you sure its from the front? A knocking noise a friend had at the front was really from the back. Actually it turned out to be the exhaust occasionally knocking against the back shock!!

Hi there, if you cant find the rivets, be brutal and use small self tappers and cut them to size. Not concourse, but they'll work.
