Project Moggie - Disassemble Body Parts

Restoration work began. The idea is to work at home. Found a person to do the tinker work. I do the mechanical work and hoping to do the paint job as well in the future. Firstly removed the interior parts such as car seats. After that, the four doors were removed. Then front and back wings, bonnet & boot. Finally the differential and the engine were removed.

Wow this is brilliant - so much old world charm. Good luck with the project @kusumsiri - the car already looks nice so after you've finished we will probably see an absolute minter 🙂. Back in 2007 when i had just finished my AL's my dad and i bought a Morris Traveller to restore sadly neither of us had the time to spend on it so we sold it off - that car was in horrid shape compared to this ( It even had it's own in-house eco system of insects - ants spiders etc)  it traveled more miles by being pushed than by it's own engine 😛  that picture of the engine brought back some memories

Thank you very much for appreciation. Hoping to update this blog when time permits. Willing to restore the car in its original condition. Unfortunately it dont have original front seats and hub cups. So need to find those.

I did not try to find hub cups yet. Because still working with other tasks. Are you really finding hub cups ? Are they hard to find ?

Hello mate,

Interesting project! I grow up with them since i was a kid and inherited the 1957 MM convertible which is our family pride.

Good to see someone is doing a MM project.

PM me the parts you looking, i might be able to shed some light.

regards,

JC

Weak break :  As I mentioned in the previous blog entry, the brakes were very week when the car bring to home. Had to press paddle 2-3 time to slow down the car. Could not exceed 30kmh. When started the disassembling work found that back oil seals leaked differential oil to the brake drums. Also one brake liner separated and was inside the brake drum.

Now complete brake system disassembled, cleaned and repainted.

What you guys think about the U bolts. Should I find new ones or threaded originals ?
