Hello from me and my moggie

If you are new to the board or have never made a post before, don't just lurk around, post in here and introduce yourself and your Minor if you have one. It would be great to hear from you.

Hello from me and my moggie

Post by Pledgedplum »

Hi
my name is Noah and I am the new owner of a (partially) almond green 1967 2 door Morris minor 1000. it currently has a problems including the left side torsion bar sticking through the floor and a very rusty right hand sill it is currently a rolling shell. I am 18 years old and from Cheshire and this is my first Morris minor, this is the first Morris minor I have ever even been in but my dad did own one back in the 80s but he's not much of a car guy so wont be much help anything other than lifting. I have thrown myself in the deep end quite considerably so I would love any help or tips anyone could give me as i know very little. I have already looked at some of the posts and conversations on this site and am sure this is the right place to find the answers to any of my questions.

Bellow should be a picture of my moggie when it arrived at my house (if ive done it right).

Hi Noah,
Great to hear from some younger members getting involved with Morris Minors. We have had a few generations of Morris Minor owners in our family and find them grand little cars to drive and own and easy to live with and repair. You'll find lots of help and encouragement here. It sounds as if you'll need quite a bit of welding on your project starting with the centre crossmember but it can all be done :) .

Hi Noah.

Sounds as if the first thing you’ll need to do is learn to weld. You may find local night classes starting up again soon.

funnily enough I've never liked wood work so I would do terribly if I tried to restored a traveller or build a boat.

Welcome to the MMO forum, you’ll find plenty of help, banter and even parts on here if your lucky.

I’d encourage you to start a projects page and show plenty of photos, list what is good and bad. Never be afraid to ask questions and accept it might take a while to get it finished. Along the way you’ll learn so much.

Good luck!
