Why buy a Morgan if your going to start putting appendages on it to stop a bit of wind, for me the fun is that open drafty feel on a crisp day in a flying jacket. Why not get your other half a lovely flying jacket with a big collar and a suitable hat. hide

Found this by accident when I had a load of stuff in the back.

Fold the tonneau upwards behind the seats so it sticks up a few inches. It makes quite a difference; maybe not as much as a full mesh block but it costs nothing and looks OK!
