Back on this headlamp ring issue again, I suspected the Mog was a poorer fit than the old Mini

So took one off each and they are clearly quite a few mm different in depth



They (obviously) have identical 11 and 1 o'clock bayonet clips and the lower screw, but the Mini ones are 'rolled' a tiny bit tighter as they are shallower in depth and this gives a better fit



Mini left, Mog right



The Mog fit is really poor, you can see the adjusters on the inner ring through the gap, when assembled

When I had my Alfa Spider series 3 I swopped the H/L rims out for stainless ones, I wonder if they would fit the Morgan ????

Morgan rims increased in depth at some stage. Later cars have deeper rims.

Stainless Mini ones fit earlier cars. Not sure when the Morgan rims changed depth though.
