My long term project , morris truck v8

Anything goes - chassis, V6's, V8's etc.

If you don't have any spare wheels the pin can be cut out,cleaned up and re-used 180 degrees out,and maybe re-locate the park cam 180 degrees also...

John ;)

John, I will have the clap hands wipers so if I'm understanding right my mgb 2 speed will have a little too much sweep as is so I would be best to modify my wheel. Would a minor 1000 wheel be a direct swap over ?thanks for the info this is all new to me so I'm still learning

plastic orange wrote:A 6mm round steel bar either welded or glued in the return edge at the front of the bonnet stiffens things up no end and stops the usual cracking and splits that form. Mine also has a centre brace made from round bar which goes across in roughly the same location as original. This is welded in the centre of the bonnet and makes things nice and stable.

I like the idea of the round rod on the front edge that is a real problem area and that would greatly help support it, the dual hood props are a good idea too. I'll give it some thought and come up with something probably some type of mix of your and dunks ideas thanks for the help on this

Going to be putting in a digital gauge cluster so needed to cut off the raised part of the glove box and make it all flat and grind smooth

I put together the gauge cluster the other day, it's made by intellitronics it seems like a nice piece. It looks great when it's lit up

Blacked out the center gauge for now, I might do something with it later but for now I think it looks decent

Working on glass and window frames lately , the new style felt lined rubber for the window frames seems less forgiving than the original all felt ones. One side seems tight and the other the glass was loose.

Put in the windshield the other night, the stainless trim was the worst part of the whole thing. I put the trim on the rubber then rubber on the glass then put the glass in the truck.

It's true, it doesn't look like it will ever go in

I bought a used new old stock fiberglass tailgate, it is a lot nicer than my steel one and should save me a lot of time in body work

Put together the front end today, some of the paint will probably require some buffing to get it just right but it should clean up nicely
