The finishing touch snaps. A little more ...a little more and then a whole lot of credits to everyone who helped me get this car ready.

Cheers

Wonderful, great job, the dash looks immaculate, as does the engine bay. One question, why are the bumpers painted and not chromed?

Regards

Thank you for the appreciation. The bumpers are chromed as I am waiting for new ones which should arrive shortly. While the knob on the dash is there just not put that as it gets dirty so final fiddle with the electrical and should be fine.

Great show ..... very nice restoration

However, a critic has to piss on every painting other than his own.. I hope u understand my point.

A Question : are my eyes playing tricks on me ..!!, The first Picture has a Regn number MTY XXX, Now it is MAP YYY.

Have I missed something.?

Cheers!

Hello Kasli,

What was the tire size you got? I need 5 white walls for my car as well. Let me know whom to contact for them.

Beautifully restored sir. I wish one day when I move back to India to restore a classic as well. I have childhood memories of my Mama's Morris. *sigh*

The registration was a temporary one and MAP is the original one back on the car.
