The two inner pivots being at different angles would not create a bind?

Those are spherical joints. The arm will swing freely on an axis passing through their centers.

That looks like a similar geometry to the Empire kit, I imagine the results will be very similar. The lighter mudguards will improve matters as well. It makes you wonder why Morgan didn't try harder to get below the 450Kg tax break. A lighter radiator cowl would go a good way towards it easily.
