Re: VW weekend

You'd be surprised how many 'youngsters' drive Minors... we're going to have quite a large presence at this year's national rally.

Re: coach paint??

Crossed wires... that's the finish you get with coach paint.

If your son is on facebook tell him to search for "MMOC Young Members" and to request to join the group :D

Re: coach paint??

We did my mate's Austin 10 using coach paint (I hear the purists weeping from here :lol:). It turned out great and always has a brilliant shine on it even when it's been left outside and not washed for months (I hear more gentle weeping :lol:). It wasn't a problem to spray and can be thinned down us...

Re: Increasing MM insurance costs

I must say That FJ are great for the younger members. Most of the members of the Young Members Register are with them and pay a fraction of what our counterparts in Vauxhall Corsas and the like pay.

Special thanks has to go to Dave Youngs from FJ who does all he can to help members of the register!
