    Steve, Thanks a million for showing those photos. Frank, you did a wonderful job and should be commended for getting these photos for the rest of the world to see! I just bought a complete set of grommets for the TF from Moss and discovered, because of these photos, not a damn one of them is correct! Moss is getting way down on my list for parts anymore. Man I love these photos! So much informatio...

    I have just fitted a glovebox stainless steel door stay. It is very much similar to the ones fitted to Morris Minors but will not rust. I think they look quite nice. I just have to fit different screws as I only had the square drive screws at hand.

    Could you put the wheels on a lathe and take some meat off the mating face where the wheel fits against the brake drum ?

    Effectively giving yourself more off set ?

    I would be able to do that with my alloys as there is plenty of thickness there...

    You're right, Steve. I was a bit hard on Uncle Joe, I guess! That said some of the stuff fitted to 50's motorcycles was pretty nasty. Not only Lucas, Miller as well. And you're right again about some Italian kit. I had endless trouble with electrics on both my 70's Ducatis until I fitted secondhand Japanese parts :-)

    The real problem is overloading as you say. In my car a previous owner had...

    I would guess that the two screws for the top catch were originally 5BA which is basically 1/8" OD. The ones that Todd Clarke supplies are neither 4-40 nor 5BA but diameter is close to 5-40. The nuts he supplied were Nylock and no spring washers were needed.

    The bottom latch is held by screws that go right through the metal hood frame and into the wood so they would have been woo...

    I think it's about time someone show and original engine from a survivor in it's original un molested colors. There are too many variations out there and they all are supposed to be correct! In the eyes of the beholder I guess, but that doesn't cut it. Anyone have photos of a true survivor un molested engine? Just survivor photos please. PJ


    Originally from the state of Virginia, now in Minnesota. Has always been garaged and has never been driven in snow. I have owned it about 12 years.
    Exterior is straight and rust free. It was repainted shortly before I bought it. The chrome is aftermarket. Like new Michelin radial tires.
    The dash is original but could use redoing. The rest of the interior has been redone. The carpet needs to...
