Re: custom register

Then maybe someone should pick up the PHONE and ring the chap!! or have people forgotten how this is done! An email is just far to easy to ignore and deal with that 'later' when we have time, then weeks, months, even years pass and where do we get? NOWHERE. Ring the guy, put him on the spot and ask ...

Re: Has the Custom Register Died????

I couldnt agree more Mark. I've been in the modified moinor scene for about 11 years, all thanks to the Beardmore Bros! :D they were my inspiration, its a shame they arent building anything at the moment, what did happen to the MX5 based minor build that was started?? You are correct in the types of...

Re: Roll-cage

(18 yr old) neighbour fitted one to his Saxo and the insurance went up around £300! If it only went up £300 for a boyracer saxo, then on a classic policy morris insurance shouldn't make any difference :D I dont think it made any difference to my brothers mini insurance. I was almost tempted to make...

You could just buy a Sierra? the engine will fall into place, less agro, less stress and much more fun to drive as lets face it, you will have to do SO MUCH work to a morris to get this to fit and drive any sence (rear axle and suspension upgrade, propshaft made, gearbox mounts, engine mounts, the s...

Re: mental morris.

Thats COOL!! :D I like it but just dont understand why anyone would put that much work in to hot rodding it and leave the a-series engine in there, it should be blessed with a nice V8 or something cool to match the cars style 8) I got nothing against the a-series.
