Nice to see it coming along so well Rick. Just got my 10/4 back on the road and have also a couple of small metalwork repairs to do. Trying to work out how to weld it without setting fire to the wood behind.

Just a few more quick photos, as you can see, the inner rear arches had suffered a little Shocked



Both replacements now fitted




Next thing to replace are the "sills", which are really just flat steel sections beneath the doors, attached to the ash frame underneath with panel pins. The old ones have rotted out along the return under the car each side. Fortunately they came off without damaging anything, so next is to create some replacements and fit them.

Great little car Rick. Wouldn't try anything too ambitious on those motorcycle tyres though. Shocked


What a fab car Rick. You should get it on the road.

Once I've got a couple of others something like right, then yes I'd like to re-visit it. The 34 Minor saloon I used to amble about in drove really well, so this should be similar, maybe even a little nippier.

Morning all,

The other day during a move around I extracted the Minor from the corner of the garage, with a view to dusting it down, tidying it up, and reminding myself what exactly it still needs. I've not really touched it for some time for various reasons (usually other things on the boil), but hopefully cutting back on other projects might free up time to re-visit this long-term resident.

A short vid uploaded today takes a quick look at the current state of play ...
