Last 2 days the brakelights stayed on. Had a look and it seemed the little clip that operates the switch was turned away. So easy to fix ;-)

I put on new/old direction indicators on the front. So the spare ones could get off. I had found some nice belgian ROG lamps from the 30s/40s on a fleamarket and restored them. They are fitted with LED-lamps.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I used to have Morris Minors - upgraded to Citroen. Put all new wood frame on my 1955 Traveller, joints rotting again in 2 years. The wood used for car body frames, Ash, is classed as a 'none durable hardwood', passable under a skin but hopelessly rot prone when exposed to the weather. As you probably know the 'exposed frame' style was copied from American 'Woody' station wagons, ironically by the time BMC were using it structurally on the Minor (& Oxford) Travellers it was only found as stuck on trim in the US & even that was shortly replaced by painted tin. Their 'Woodys' had been structuraly all steel from the late 40's I believe, BMC carried it on on the Minor until 1972 and as trim on the Mini Countryman until about the same time - made those Minis rust twice as quick as the rest! :lol:
Don't be seduced, stick with the Citroen!

But Minor Tourers (convertibles) are cool.

:lol:

They are all cool, just not always easy to live with ;)
Tourers can suffer from a lack of torsional stiffness and worse as the tin worm gets it's little gnashers into the cills and/or chassis legs! Early clue is variable door gaps when parked on uneven surfaces, inability to open/close doors... :lol:
