This is Maurice The Morris. (I promised the lady I bought him from that I would keep the name!
Not really a restoration, more just getting things done. I drove 30 miles home with almost no brakes. They have now been done. The rear gearbox mount only has one bolt, not four. Some welding to the chassis rails in hat area required. I am now waiting for my tame welder to be ready. Trouble is the master cylinder will have to come out, so brake bleeding again. The carpets were original and not much more than dust, so new ones for Christmas. Apart from the above jus general cleaning required. The whole car was absolutely filthy. A few photos attached.

Had to re-do foot well side panels as SWEMBO declared the red to be too red. Actually I think she was right. New panels now made and covered. New parcel shelf to match. Photo attached of replacement captive bolts for gearbox rear mounting cross member fixing. Inside chassis rails laced with underseal and gearbox cover panel replaced today.
