Is North Coast Motors still in operation? They used to have a good hoard of old stuff too.

Thanks Naresh. There were great guys there in the 1970s and 1980s. Keen prices too. (And you could even buy petrol on a Sunday too :)) They kept my Minis and Toyota 4x4s on the road.

Moolas have an amazing store room upstairs. Finding what you need is another question...
That's how I roll. Down the hill 'cause the car won't start and the brakes don't work.

I spent ages looking for a slave cylinder, must have looked through 100s. There must be some amazingly hard to find bits in there. It's a treasure cave but it needs sorting.
