I don’t know if anyone has mentioned it Martin but if you are struggling to adjust the nearside door mirror to get a decent rear view angle, particularly for reversing into a garage or actually seeing what’s behind, don’t worry we’ve all been there

Most of us has given up and swapped the mirror and stems for one of several after-market round convex mirrors from the likes of Phoenix Designs (aka Morgan hoods) or Heart of England Morgans

It’s all part of the fun

Honest

Something special about a new shiny Morgan..

Hope it meets your expectations and is good to you !!!

There is a wealth of experience on this Forum and most members have experienced most of the quirkiness of the Morgan.

No question is too dumb to ask..this is how we all learned.


Enjoy your car !!!

Thanks for all the nice comments!

@stewart s - although I’ve only put car in garage so far, I agree the left hand mirror was utterly useless. The car we took out on test was slightly better (but still poor) so I think I can get a bit more adjustment - currently an only see the sky! It’ll make reversing out of the garage “interesting” especially with the difficulty seeing over the shoulder as a result of the hood being up.

I was looking at Heart Of England on line, and will probably go for round heads from them. Swmbo has already authorised the purchase as I suggested it was a safety issue innocent

I concur with the round mirrors advice.

Something else to do is to fit mirrors in the garage to make seeing the side nearest the wal / door frame a bit easier. A lorry mirror from eBay is often very cheap and gives additional reassurance.

I can certainly recommend the ones from www.morganhoods.com

The method of adjusting works well

I’ve had two Morgans and each time I’ve swapped them to these
