My Morris has been off the road since last May when her floor gave up, and she needed extensive welding, so after 18 months of been outside with only a gazebo for cover, and been on her side in a roll-over jig for most of it do you think she started?

YES! first time, all I did was put fresh oil and petrol in, reconnect the battery, gave the fuel pump a clonk with the hammer, and she started within seconds!

surprised me, I thought it was going to be a right Bleep ache

so now all I have to do it put the wings, doors, seats back on and she might be ready for an MOT (just need 2 rear wings, new ones are so expensive!)

Sounds brilliant! Look forward to seeing it on the road again next year?

It wont be on the road until I can afford to buy 2 new rear wings, and buying them new (£120 each) is out the the question at the moment.
