Morris Minor, Fenchurch

Minor update

One of my tasks once Odyssey is out of the way is going to be to do some maintenance on Fenchurch. She's been neglected resting in dry storage for about a year, after having been stored outside and driven virtually daily in all weathers for the couple of years prior to then. She has a current MOT and runs OK apart from a bit of smoking on overrun. Mechanically she needs new rear springs and new suspension bushes all round (already in stock). The main things she needs though are to give her a full service, re-treat the woodwork to preserve it, touch up the many paint chips, and redo the anti-rust wax treatment underneath. Collapse )
