  1. I'm kind of sad COVID kept them from doing a full resto.

    Got my grill back from Chrome yesterday and took it for a spin, took some pics.
  3. Wayno has a RHD U320, right?

    Has anyone ever compared a 320 rear bumperette with one from a Morris Minor? It's not quite as round as the 320 bumper but looks closer than the 521 and 620 rears. https://www.ebay.com/itm/CLASSIC-MORRIS-MINOR-TRAVELLER-REAR-CHROME-1-4-BUMPER-BLADE-FREE-SHIPPING/362964472121?hash=item54825e5139:g:hN0AAOSw0yJefl4O&fbclid=IwAR0WlmZR2j-GvWB-mPhILGd3AO07HbaTNUaUkS01MhXNjEvfM-PMSRj0QR8 https://www.morrisminorspares.com/body-inc-panels-trim-c21/traveller-parts-c34/rear-bumper-blade-chrome-traveller-quality-uk-chromed-p828692?fbclid=IwAR1EUo12j9ICcR_ldo3KPywT-Wm8g3IC9Toc5HhUI7glGB5MNYw0oVodMwo The place that did my paint is a British car place and they've got a Morris Minor or two around the place. I'll try and compare.

    For me it's both a point of pride and embarrassment. I pretty much have to do things and undo things a handful of times before I get it right. I didn't do any fabrication and I easily have 1K hours plus.

    This is great, thank you. Ebay seems to have tons in this style--I'm on the hunt for one that fits my battery.

    What did the factory battery hold down look like?

    Got my steering wheel turned right side up and took it for a drive this afternoon. Took advantage of the COVID19 situation and took a pic in an empty parking lot that's usually full.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Horn update: following the advice of an Aussi 320 FaceBook friend I ran 1000 grit between the contacts and boom--fired right up. Horns are back in and honking nicely.

    H horn was working great but stopped working out of nowhere. Horn button and relay are fine. When I bench test it the thin metal diaphragm vibrates but it doesn't honk. I messed with the adjustment screw a little and got it to honk once but it went back to not working. Any advice on where to go from here? The wiring and armature look pristine.

    Well shit. Last time I took my wheel off I broke my nose. Needless to say I'll leave the nut on a thread or two before I start pulling on it.
