So are you ready?

Here is a biggish update. Part 1

Due to modifying an original brand new LHD wiper mechanism, to operate as a single wiper, I had to have a new bespoke mount made under the scuttle panel.




Here is the bespoke coolant radiator now sitting in its new position. It was only the 6 cylinders that had the front scuttle panel opened up. This was to allow the room of the bigger engine





Next up is making sure the fire extinguisher bottle sat on its new bespoke mount properly.





I'm very lucky to of been given from Alpina an original MOMO steering wheel.



Who remembers this pic which I called a butterfly mount?.

Part2.

Well this is what the mount is going to used for.






The 3 sections of welded on plate are for the aero-catch pins, which will secure the boot lid into place.



As you can see, even I have plenty of room in the drivers seat.



Side shot of the lady with her composite doors fitted.



Just like the Alfa Romeo I built for the same client, I'm so happy that the cage runs so tight to the body line, that it almost becomes invisible to the eye.

I hope you liked this update.

Yep I have been very busy but couldn't of done it without the help of Robinson Race Cars - www.robinson-race-cars.co.uk
I got to know this team when I worked for Lanzante. Since I started the race team with Henry at Williams Automobiles (Williams Morgan) I have carried on the relationship to a great success.


I also am very lucky to be having support from some great companies on this build.

Looks all more than promising. Very good and detailed work!

Please, if it is finished so far, post also a video with the sound of the engine!

We really do appreciate the time you take to share this build Lawrie there would be no way the average Morgan owner would be able to enjoy this kind of adventure, it's great stuff thumbs.


My God that roll cage test was scary to say the least !
