Thanks. Trying to fix the chrome at moment and getting the wings right is proving interesting.

Excellent progress :) . Although a Morris Minor is a fairly straightforward car, there is still a lot of work in a traveller restoration. Yes, getting everything to fit decently can involve a great deal of time :x
Keep up the good work, it's a bit harder once the days get colder isn't it.

Thanks. I'm pleased with how the bonnets lined up with the front panel. Its just wing to doors that need some fettling. Yeah hate it in the wet and snow. Cold isn't as bad I find, just hurts the joints more. I rechassised my land rover in the winter. Was abit cold!

Sorry for lack of updates. I haven't done much to her lately. Been busy with others cars and will be over the Christmas break aswell. Tho iv just bought a sensible road car so it's safe to say that the traveller will be a dry day/summer/it's my car il drive it when I like car. I'm missing working on it. I have to drive it out the way every time I work on another car.

Its abit early but MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone. Hope you all have a lovely time. Looking forward to all the new updates.

Iv made up some heater hoses from 1/2 inch reinforced fuel line. Works well on the bends. Tho I think iv done the pipes round the wrong way. Tho iv seen it done both ways. Tho im sure it'll be ok. Iv refitted the heater so the car can now be started and left running. Its all mainly lots of little jobs left.

I'm abit ill at the moment, just getting over a nasty virus. Was dying to do something on the moggie so I fitted the screen. Went in ok with paracord and levering with screwdrivers. Chrome was a little tricky and I damaged one corner a little bit but it looks good and got me out the house. Just recovering from it at the moment.

Iv also bought 4 bits of interior wood that goes above and below the windows as one was missing. Still need the right hand side metal bit that goes onto it. Will be ordering the window channels, roof gutters and some sealer on my next order. Will be getting somewhere once tho are fitted.
