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.

New on the forum

Postby diablo » Mon Sep 09, 2019 7:44 am

Hello , I am new on the forum ; I am French ( nobody is perfect ) and live in Normandy . I bought a 1971 blue traveller in England in february 2019 and I convert it to LHD . I expected to do some minor paint repair but the car body was too much rusty in some places and it finished with a complete repainting . I have refurbished the brakes with new parts ( it has a servo ) and actually , I am peeling off the naughty dark varnish from the woods and I shall bring it back to a softer and cleaner colour .I have a big concern with one front seat which is damaged ; the problem is that the interior of the car is "limeflower" and I have not found new cover ; it seems this colour was produce in very small quantity and there is no remanufacturing of the vinyl .If someone can help it would be welcome .I owwn some other Britt things ; a Jaguar XK14 OTS and a Lotus Ean , plus some of the most famous british bikes .( sorry , I forgot the Daytona ).
Cheers
Diablo

:D Welcome from me too - sorry I don't have any helpful ideas either! I know we used Newton Commercials for our van interior but they don't seem to do limeflower but you could have a look at their website -

Sounds like your Traveller is in good hands with some very interesting garage friends! (Would love to see photos of your collection).
