Great pics! You have a nice neat workshop there and the Morris looks good, too. :thumbs: What's the reason for the doors on the windows? Does the weather get that severe where you live or is it just for extra security?

Nice 800!
I really like the round hoods and round fender look of these older tubeframes.

Michael, two great classics in one photo! I love the green on your Morris Minor saloon; what colour is it? My Morris LCV is painted in Willow Green and is not too different to yours. The 800 is stunning!

Here's a photo of my Morris Van with a Ford 100 (Sorry no Bolens in this shot but will have a line up of all my Bolens with the Morris as the backdrop).

Are you watching the Rugby World Cup?

Cheers Andrew

Cheers folks, its been a while fixing all the niggles and ongoing issues as i think the previous owner was a bit loose on the maintenance on it so its good to actually have it out for a run and not need to fix anything for once. As i get it out more i'm sure a few things will crop up and they will be sort as they come.

The doors are just for security Toolfoole, My shed is a few kays down the road from me and its a pretty quiet area with few people around, Just stops people peering in and seeing the tools/tool cab/Trailer as that sort of thing is often burgled in NZ. Weather is super mild, a thunder/hail storm usually makes the evening news actually!

Im not totally sure on the colorAndrew, It was like that when i bought it , Its a bit darker than yours i think. Its original paint underneath/enginebay/inside boot etc and the OG color is darker still.

Thanks Rick, we sure do have a thriving classic car movement in the UK. Here's a photo of my Ausin Minor Pickup in Teal Blue from last year. All we need here is a bigger GT scene!

Sure is - i work for a removal company so have a endless supply of heavy duty boxes that i open flat on the floor, Makes kneeling a bit softer and when they get too dirty i just lay new one down. Saves cleaning oil and grease off the floor all the time
