Split Screen chrome surrounds

I am nearing completion of the restoration of my 1952 MM series and have just installed the windscreen with new rubber and the new slightly smaller glass, all well and good but the chrome surrounds are sticking out at the corners, any and all advise on a type of adhesive or any other method of curin...

Re: Gear shift lever knob

Thanks to Rob and all who replied, it turns out that Bryan Gostling still has some of the knobs that Mike Perry had made & one will be on it's way to me shortly. Once received, I'll post photos of it for comment on originality as it seems that there is some doubt.

Gear shift lever knob

I remember about a year ago or maybe longer that a member was pursuing the possibility of having some original style gear shift knobs for the MM series made, the ones with the brass inserts. Sorry, I don't remember the member's name but does anyone know if this came to pass and if so would there sti...

Re: Glove box clock

Ian, I hope the attached photos will help, the very small hole in the back is where the adjustment screw is situated and the wording is: Turn clockwise if gaining & vice versa. Setting hands starts clock. There is no provision for a globe to illuminate the clock, but there is clear plastic or whatev...

Re: Series MM split screen installation

To David McCullough, well David here I am again, yes it's the manlyvaleaussie about the split screen installation and I think I have the answers to my problems but looking for verification.

Re: Series MM split screen installation

Many thanks to David, the description and photos of Stevey's installation are invaluable, after seeing these I am going back to just ordering a new seal EXT 101 as the seal in the EXT 101K with the new smaller glass to ease the installation does not appear to have a slot for the chrome insert unless...

Re: Series MM split screen installation

To geoberni, the 1949 MM Low Light from which I got my chrome strips for the outside had the inside mouldings as described in the manual, as per johnv these were only fitted from 1948 to October 1949, my 1952 MM does not have them. manlyvaleaussie

Re: Series MM split screen installation

Thank you John and maybe you've raised an issue I hadn't considered, do you know if the chrome surrounds were the same for the early and late split screens. The reason for the question is that my 1952 was missing the windscreen it it's entirety and so I took the chrome strips from the 1949, car numb...

Series MM split screen installation

I know that this subject has been hashed and re-hashed, but please bear with me one more time. Yuma , Arizona where I currently reside is a very small town and although we have excellent auto glass installers here nobody has even heard of a Morris Minor let alone seen one and most certainly have nev...

Grasping at straws I realise, but somehow during the restoration of my 1952 Series MM with the split wind screen I have lost one of the connector / bridging small chrome pieces that connect the chrome surrounds on the outside of the wind screen seal, do you happen to have one or know of someone who ...
