Do your doors stay open once opened? laugh2

An odd question perhaps, but mine don't and after a bit of research it seems that they should.. but nobody is certain.

Thanks fellow TM'ers! cheers

NO they don't !!

I reckon Morgan have a contract with the local A & E as the doors are ideally placed to gauge a lump out of your shin ooo

I did investigate the Librands door stay a while back.Peter J has them on his car I believe , but I don't think they will retro fit the S1 confused2

They are a bit on the pricey side to buy on the off-chance they could be made to fit - but if 'someone' were to act as guinea pig......... somestick

Have a good Christmas all wine

I remember asking this question when I had mine a few years ago. I was told either.
1. Man up
2. Get shin pads.
3. Get a classic you wimp.

I wimped out and bought a +4 getcoat

They don't stay open. The technique is get left leg in the car & bum on seat. Prod the door to swing further open with right hand, rapidly get right leg into car in time to catch door on the rebound before it slams shut breaking the door window in the process - these are Morgans, would we have it any other way?

Agree with all the comments, and the technique with the door prod, trying to fold yourself in without breaking windows is also one I employ (not helped that I am nearly 6ft 5!) laugh2

I enquired about a more elegant solution at my dealer who spoke to Librands as part of their investigation into various options, it was they who confirmed that the reason the stays they sell do not fit is the layout of the S1 doors - i.e. it already has a bar that should do that, so they suggested it was either broken or needed rectifying.

Shooter if you do have any pictures or info on how yours stay open, that would be great. cheers
