Thank you for helping!!!


Could you possibly post up some pictures of what Morgan actually supplied you with in terms of the valance and the fitting kit please. Was it painted by the factory or supplied the buff?

I lowered my valance, it was fitted it to high IMO, the first Image shows how it use to look with the valance holes not fully exposed. I also removed the plate box.

Whose valance is that Craig - Williams or Wolf? You're right, the air intake surrounds sitting under the bodywork of the car doesn't look quite right. Far better in the lower pictures.

It’s a Williams valance, I used Williams because they colour matched it perfect, sprayed and fitted all included at a very reasonable price too.

Here’s the Wolf valance in its bare state, they have several versions. I think this is called the sport, various shapes and sizes of centre vent can also be chosen, can’t remember the price exactly, about £300 as I recall.

I can’t wait to see it painted and fitted ewn, it’s going to look smart. I don’t think I’ve seen a valance on a 4/4 80th before ?

Thank you very much for your answers!
Of course I will first fit it to the car and then let it be painted.
The picture from under the car is very helpfull to me as it shows, how the valance is fitted to the car. That is what I need to know. I think, it does not show a Morgan made valance, but I hope, it works the same way. More pics from under the car would be great, if there are any around.
Thank you very much again and I will post the result, if I will understand one day, how to put pics on this site! ;-)

I can confirm how useful the valance is at catching errant pheasants for supper, although the last one I tried it with ended up in 3 pieces spread 50 yds along the road, however, without a valance, he might easily have ended up spread along the underside of the car, like a rabbit once did on my Caterham Seven. Very messy!!
