Re: three pairs of hands

I just found that saving an image again (from photoshop in my case), even without any modifications to the image itself made the forum correctly rotate it.

'63 Interior. Now for the interior differences of the '63 car. Sorry for the use of flash but the garage even with lights on is a dark and dingy place. It was also much colder than expected so the photos are more blurry from shivering :oops: Wingaard Interior Light: 63interior_light.jpg Door Strap: ...

Interior Differences Picture Guide: 1963 Duotone Late 948cc vs Early 1098cc

This is something I've meant to do for a while but never managed to get decent enough photographs. Now that I've replaced the camera in my phone (discovered on removing the old one it had exploded with rust! much like a Morris Minor ) I find my shaky hands aren't blurring the images quite so much so...

Re: Expensive nuts

You see it quite a lot on eBay, sellers making sure you don't think you get a whole wrecked car for £99 - still, not bad all things considered, usually it's only a single nut they give you :D

Re: Aerosol Can Disaster

Different cans of Almond Green used to be different shades as well many years ago, ironically the first can I had matched my car perfectly, the second was much too light (and as it turned out was true almond green unlike my car) :)

Re: Amber warning beacon

consist of the younger 'millennial' generation (though not necessarily exclusively) It's funny, but I always thought of "millennials" as people born from 2000 onwards, turns out the official definition is those who were born and/or became adults after 2000 - so I count as a millennial. :o It also s...

Re: Amber warning beacon

Interesting, I'd actually once met someone who said they used to own a Morris with a roof like that, but they'd sold it years ago I seem to recall. I actually wondered if you ever polished that side of the car if it was foam etc. :wink: as someone who dislikes backing down the drive and into the gar...

Re: Security

A long time ago I saw these small battery operated alarms (presumably for houses).

They used AA batteries and set off an alarm if motion was detected - always wondered if you could leave one of those in the drivers side glovebox.

Re: Amber warning beacon

@Owlsman - is it the picture, or does your car have a canvas/rubber sunroof? Also out of interest, are those big pieces of foam against your garage wall? (to protect the car from being scratched?).

Re: Is he being a bit optimistic?

Some of the chrome doesn't look too bad :D

That said it took me a while to notice the lack of a windscreen, still - there's another thread asking how to stop your windscreen misting up so maybe we have a solution !

Re: Windows steaming up.......

I have an old book from the 60's that recommends always having the two back windows ever so slightly open to prevent misting up, and getting headaches while driving.

There are also various window sprays readily available that are meant to help prevent condensation forming in the first place.

Re: copper ? Wire

Not copper, but brass - years ago I bought a whole load of (fairly expensive) solid brass screws also off a well known auction site, since I was fed up of steel going rusty. They looked good, they looked like brass - years later I was using one and the hole was slightly too small as when I turned th...
