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...

1952 series MM

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 ...

I am planning to paint my 1952 Series MM restoration in Clarendon Grey, (originally painted black) the aerosol cans available in the U.K. that would be perfect for a sample of the colour cannot be shipped to the U.S.A.

MM carpet colour

According to Ray Newell (and who would doubt his word) my 1952 Series MM would have come with maroon carpet, however none of the suppliers I have tried have maroon, they all have red. Looking for advice. Thanks, Paul Follett. Yuma, Arizona. manlyvaleaussie
