Just a couple of upgrades.

My heater seal was not good, being a thick sponge, shiny on one side and not the other, and messy to look at.
Here it is as original:


A while ago I 'enhanced' it with 3mm HD neoprene on both sides, secured with contact adhesive.



A couple of weeks ago I added a leather top strip from my offcuts box. I didn't expect this to look 'fantastic', but see what you think. The cutting out took a bit of time.





I've had a real creak from the nearside bulkhead for a year, and probably from new. Last week I found the source. The bonnet tape backing strip has about 2 thou movement on the tack, and when you press where the arrow is on the photo it creaks like a good 'un. I've forced some spray lubricant into the crack, while holding it slightly open with a fine screwdriver, and the creak has gone (for now).



Finally I came across an "Anniversary" badge on e-bay. From a Nissan Micra 30th. Having pondered for ages I've put it here. I'm still not sure about it, but it will peel off, its only plastic...........

Regarding the 75th Anniversary badge, have you thought about an engraved plaque from a sports trophy shop.
They would also engrave the Morgan badge if you took something for them to copy.
