Hello!
Are some morgan owner so kind to give me the length from their easy up hood??

I need the length from the "visable" material (from the end at the body to the edge at the front chrome bar by the wind screen.)


And it would also help if you could write me the length of the second hood bar (the bar over the head). I have to know the length from the left axle to the right axle .

I wonder if morgan made only standart easy up hoods or also custom made easy up hoods.

In fact I have to know wether my hood is a standart hood.
Thank you!

Bernt

The hoods are made to a standard pattern. They are fitted to the car and then adjusted to each individual car before the front bar is fitted.

Former Morgan owner. Gone but hopefully not forgotten!

Im sure mine will be different to yours but this is what I measured.

Rear of hood to the front chrome frame (measured on outside) = 1375mm

Second frame bar - distance between pivots holes = 1830mm (almost exactly 6ft)

Hope it helps you!
