Re: Early MM parts

I was waiting for something like that, Rob. I'll be honest in its current state and with no running gear I thinking more 250 quid. I may try and blag some extra storage time at work due to this silly Beer virus, may even fix some more rust and revisit the idea once this has all blown over. Cheers, Rod

Re: Early MM parts

Hi Rob, issue would be storage. I had to move the car to work when we moved house, I no longer have my big detached double garage to hide things in. The Wives car and my two old Triumph Motorbikes live in the carpeted attached double garage. Filling it with random bits of motorcar would likely lead ...

Re: Early MM parts

Hopefully this should make registering it a little easier as well. You have to like proper old log books!

Re: Early MM parts

Sorry Rob, I don't. However a quick local Google brings these guys up https://tauruslogistics.co.nz Being Christchurch based makes them handy. May be worth an email if you wanted to dip your feet. I can assemble as much as I can so you only have a Morrie shaped lump and not lots of seperate parts ta...

Re: Early MM parts

Well Gents, The car owes me less than a grand N/Z, I don’t need to make a profit and will happily take a loss to a good home. I have access to a van and salvage trailer, there are several shipping firms here in Christchurch that will rent a container or space within one and I will gladly load everyt...

Re: Early MM parts

There is a similar system here, you can put a vehicle on hold for a maximum of 12 months and you have to keep renewing. People forget! Would you be disappointed to hear that the Classic Car Club of N/Z are quite often consulted on such law changes? Anyhow this the old girl when I dragged her out of ...

Re: Early MM parts

This particular rule applies because the car has been deregistered. If a vehicle remains unregistered for over a year it falls off the system, in order to get it back on the road it requires certification, which if you like is a very in depth MOT. Brakes are stripped, interior panels removed etc. Si...

Re: Early MM parts

It would indeed be a shame, I’m English and a motor mechanic by trade. I spent a great deal of time welding cars and this one is not that bad. None of that changes the fact that the law here now does not allow me to repair it and it needs to go some where. If I find someone that wants to ship it bac...

Re: Early MM parts

Rob, I would love too. I've been talking with a chap about the possibility of doing so. The very last thing I actually want to do is crush it. As for how bad, it has rust in the A posts and floor edges. The left chassis rail has been poorly repaired around the eye bolt causing the suspension arm to ...

Early MM parts

Due to a law change regarding rust repaired here in N/Z I'm having to scrap my early MM chassis number 8416. I realise postage will be a killer but I do have some hard to find parts I need to sell so I can recoup some money. I also have the last early screen rubber Frank had left. Feel free to drop ...

Re: Florrie

You need to turn up your wire speed to get some more amps into your weld, currently you are a little lacking in penetration (said the Nun to the Vicar).

Re: Florrie

As Bob said, care and attention. Avoid using abrasive discs to clean the metal for welding, it's going to be thin enough as it is! Look for 3M clean and strip discs, these remove rust without grinding the surface. For MIG welding your butt welds will require a gap of about 1 mm to compensate for the...

Re: Florrie

Lots of posts on here about bracing the shell and taking lots of measurements, it's good advise and will give you some valuable welding practise! However, before bracing the body how do the doors fit in their apertures and what condition are the hinges in? The final fit of the doors will depend on y...

Re: New car coming soon.

I'm good, Mate. Got a little two year old myself. Not yet regretted leaving the wonderful Gospit! Watching that old black Minor get weighed in for scrap was a little heart breaking though!

Whats the plan for the 58? I have a 49 sitting in the shed waiting for me to wield the welding torch at it.

Re: What are the Steps of painting .

As Brian pointed out, painting the whole wing would give a better finish. From where you are now though. You need a long sanding block and some 120 grit sand paper. Use the paper dry on the block to feather the entire area you have sanded with the grinder. You should be able to run the palm of your ...

Re: 'George' 1965 2 Door Restoration Log

If it is currently good and solid your best bet is to leave well alone until you able to have the floor replaced with proper panels. The flat plate that has been used does nothing for the rigidity of the floor.

If what ever medial you are using is the cause of those deep scratches in the steel surface, then stop now.
