You have springs? Luxury! My 1957 only has a tensioned bit of steel in the wiper arm as an alternative and the wipers work well albeit in a variable arc. They work especially well driving into the wind!

Posted on behalf of Ian Westrope. I met Ian last Saturday at Uttlesford Branch Rally in Saffron Walden and he is fairly local to us. He mentioned that his brother was part way through restoration of a Morris Minor Traveller and did I know anyone who might be interested? I undertook to put it on here...

As promised some weeks ago, Ray the Uttlesford Branch engineer has made the first of the 6" (5 3/4) wire formed screwdrivers for the early toolkits. I know that were expressions of interest and if those interested can PM me or mail on firstname.lastname@example.org he can assess how much steel he will need and ho...

I have been tipped forward a few times when braking hard to avoid the numpties that cut across any classic car, but given the thinning of metal over the years I think stressing / tearing are valid concerns. I have been mulling doing something similar for some time but using additional original type ...
The lenses were used on various cars and I think with different plinths. I have seen them on MGA and Triumphs I think so the lenses fit the plinths but the plinths may be different according to make/ model.

Phil, yes still at the Bluebell, good food, excellent Saffron Brewery beer and very good company. Even the Landlord has the bug with a G reg 2 door Saloon in Maroon B rotting quietly in the corner of the car park... Can't be easy running a busy pub and working on a Minor! Next meet is actually at th...
Got to agree with you Declan, I saw a Minor at Gaydon which had the original carpet in the centre around the handbrake and although threadbare and faded it was clearly of much better pile and feel than the modern ones wherever they come from.

So I would support his pleas for this data. Most of us have it to hand and it will, when complete serve the whole Minor community well...
