Re: Is there anyone near Lichfield with a Minor?

I wondered Tim if you have a copy of this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182110840564?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=182110840564&targetid=1139674280107&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1006669&poi=&campaignid=12689628172&mkgroupid=118339815297&rlsatarget=pla-1139674280107...

Re: Introducing Elsie May

I get the feeling you are already aware fixing the mechanics is a cinch compared to woodwork and body rot, so I think she looks just fine. Personally I love the 1098 engine, good luck with that and well trousered that man.

Re: High-security door locks?

Somebody once said locks are there to keep honest people out. I would use something visible to make entry unattractive. A disk-lock is ideal and don't leave anything of value in the car removing temptation. For someone to enter the car illegally, they are either going to steal the car or something i...

Re: Hello, and advise please.

Your mechanic will want to dump the engine oil, brake fluid and other fluids for new, including petrol. The brake system will need an overhaul. I wonder if the car is already fitted with 8 inch drums on the front to accommodate the 1098 engine. Fitting a brake servo will not improve the braking powe...

Re: Chamois v Microfibre

We shouldn't really use microfibre anythings.................. Every time you wash these synthetic fabrics, millions of microfibers are released into the water. Microfibers are too small to be filtered out by waste treatment plants, so they end up in our waterways and oceans, where they wreak havoc ...

5 years Wallsend Slipway and Engineering Co, then to sea with BP. See the world and get paid for it!! :D Ah, mine was at Haverton Hill/Port Clarence (super tankers) as a mech fitter. I tried sea trials and it wasn't really for me, I think I prefer terra firma. So I left just before they closed to c...

Forgive me I should have said, I did say you will pay more for quality, we always do, £90.00 inc vat.Expensive to some, priceless to someone else. Prior to this I had a Gunnerson plastic bodied type, it was ok, but it clearly was built to a price, not a standard. As a radio amateur I also want elect...

quality battery charger

I received today a new battery charger, almost an essential item in these temperatures with a standing car. I have no allegiance or association with the manufacturer, but they do make them here and it is very good quality. Worth a look in my opinion, though you can get chargers from Halfords for a l...

This was my post, perhaps I was in a state of shock, but I didn't realise it was a Charles Ware car either.
Maybe its a halo car, priced high to make the others look cheap, not that Charles Ware Ltd has ever knowingly undersold :wink:

Re: Weatherproofing your Mog!

My main concern is prevention of tin worm, via a mix of salt and water at this time of year. Water in itself on a well undersealed car I don't see as a major issue, but salted roads are a nuisance. For that reason I keep Doris garaged at this time of year, firing up the engine from time to time to k...

Re: blimey!

I recall Roy stating years back, it can only help raise the value of the cars. A very valid point, but I wonder if it also puts people off owning a Minor ? If they glance at adds like this and decide its too expensive a hobby for them.
