That’s Stewart S - thatblooks like the way to go. I think the ones I was looking at were £49 per side + postage. I’ll get on to it tomorrow

Not being a technical person, are they best fitted by a dealer or am I being overly dense because they just clip into the existing brackets? Thanks

Congratulations FW, you must be the first ever guy to read the instructions before taking his new Morgan out for its first blast laugh2

Looks ace, roll on summer!

If you want to fiddle with the mirrors you have, I’ve renewed the post in the photo gallery which shows how I made my ones work.

You just undo the machine bolt in the mount stem and wiggle the existing stems out of the mount. The plastic bush in the end just pulls out as well

Then just simply put the plastic bush over the end of the new stem and put the stems in the mount

Do up the retaining bolt and adjust

It’s an easy 10 minute job

A few have found it difficult to the pull the stems out but just make sure you have loosened the retaining bolt (I take it fully out) and if it doesn’t come out easily give it a bit of tug with a twist but I’ve never had an issue

Thanks for this. I may get brave .... although I say that before mine arrives and she’s sitting in front of me when fear may strike....

Well HB, the car has sat in the garage again today.

It’s bl—dy freezing here today and I wussed out mainly because the roads were heavily salted overnight. I’m sure it’ll get salted underneath, rained on and probably worse at some point but I’m a bit reluctant to make that it’s first trip out..I don’t plan for the car to be a garage queen though.

I did however learn a lot about getting in and out as I was trying to get the left hand mirror better adjusted and couldn’t do it from inside the car. My arm was about 2 feet and one articulation short..must have got in and out 20 times trying to (unsuccessfully) sort it.

New mirrors have been ordered, from Stewart S’s suggested source.

Don’t blame you.
Re the mirrors how about a set of those clippers that people use to pick up litter. Store them in the passenger footwell and can then move mirror without leaving the drivers seat. Alternatively sellotape your wife’s compact mirror to a long stick and sticking that out the side. (Or yours if more appropriate-don’t wish to make any assumptions in this day and age). It’s like watching Blue Peter once I’m on a roll....
Hope that helps.
I ain’t known as an ideas man for nothing.

After Stewart S recommendation I contacted John at Morgan hoods.com to sort the mirrors out.

Today the postie arrives with the goodies, which were duly fitted to the car this morning. So not only have I driven the car now, I’ve even fettled it laugh2

I’m made up with the mirrors, they seem high quality and even better I can actually see in them!

So thanks Stewart for the pointer and thanks John for the great service. thumbs

thats what a wife for. Don't let her out of the passenger. Seat till she has got the mirror perfect for you... It can be a test of a marriage.
