Dear all,
of course for all of you lucky owner of an Aero, probably these pics will look and feel boring and obvious but in the two weeks between deciding to buy the car (without having seen it in real except sometimes in London while walking) and picking it up, I was not able to find these...
So I hope that they will help somebody sooner or later smile

The very tiny footwell (I guess that if you go for the manual transmission you'll have no space at all to put your left feet while not "playing" witht he clutch


On the right of the steering wheel, in a very comfy position there is the ODBII plug (useful if, like me, you use an Android phone with Torque) and the trimmer for the instrument lights


To me the luggage trunk look HUGE!


Here with the two bags with the removable roofs. I love the (uselss) leather spread around in the trunk as well.


The mechanism is very nice and seems well built.

These are the two leather bags to store the roofs. They are soft, well done and closed with a velcro. The shoulder strap is not as useless as I thought when I saw them the first time.


One part of the roof (to have an idea of the side and the finishing)


This is the "glovebox". it's tiny but at least there is a lighter plug. I have noticed that it's opened in the far end. I do not know if it was done by purpose. I'll try to find a way to close it.


This is nice. The wife of the previous owner was not too high, so he ordered a pillow to allow her to have a better visibility and seat postion. That was a nice surprise since my wife she is not a model as well smile
The upper part is leather, sides and part below is chamois leather and it's shaped to the seat

Some interesting pictures of areas I had not seen before. The interior leather is beautiful, so rich and well made.

That was the idea smile
Other interesting parts would be the exhausts, the sump and, in general, the underbody.
I will work on those as well.

What is the accelerator (throttle) pedal made of? It looks like painted wood- I would have thought it would be aluminium, like mine on the 4/4.

I am pretty sure my SS accelerator pedal was cast with a Morgan logo.

Looking at this and knowing the previous owner was a little short I'm guessing he had a wooden 'platform' built up?


Cheers
