I'm no expert in the Morgan production process but on my maths going down on the 28th ( based on the chassis build up photos taken on the 7th) may be a gamble if you want to catch it in build.

Others will be far more enlightened than me on build times and factory throughput. However when I made the pilgrimage to see my car - which, on my rough calculations should have been in the trim shop, I found it just an hour away from being loaded onto the kentvale transporter. Had the M6 not been shut on the morning of my visit it would already have left!


Just thinking a trip before the 28th might be a good idea?

Hi Andymot
Thought that might be possible over the recent two three weeks myself, frustratingly. However, when we booked the visit, due to work commitments for both me and Lady HB, we had to book a long way ahead and the dealer said we would be fine, even when I challenged the date to be careful. Consequently we ain't had the ability to change it. Love going to the factory anyway so am just going to have to risk it....appreciate the nudge nonetheless
Kind regards
HB

HB's car in the Assembly Shop this morning at around 10:20.


An hour or so later when I was conducting a tour the n/s wing was fitted with the o/s being trimmed to fit.

Some people deserve to be called “Sir G....” as opposed to Sergei (no offence to anyone called Sergei by the way).... ya know inside my head is a scary (but somewhat empty) place I’ve been told...
