Hi Fishmm and welcome to the club. I'm also doing a '51 mm four door sedan and I'm at the stage of putting it all back together. Hope all is going well with the rebuild.

G'day both of you. We'd love to see some pics of your projects sometime when you can put them up. Pics = thousands of words!

Here's how to make them work: http://www.morrisdownunder.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5170

Welcome to the forum! Plenty of help here. Don't forget the only stupid question is the one you're too afraid to ask, there's a heap of expertise on here dating way back before some people only dreamed about getting a MM!

Cheers,

D

Hi Fishmm51. All's going well at the moment. All body work is done and car is painted. Just booked the interior to be redone in three weeks. The disc brakes are giving me abit of a problem. But should have that worked out after the next club meting. Still haven't found a set of front quarter window rubbers as the MM's are different from later models. If you send me a p.m. with a phone number I'll give you a call as you"re in my area (Hunter).

Apologies Fish, I've been away from my computer and didn't get a notification that you'd commented on the thread.

Cheers,

David

Cheers and thanks for posting,
