Hope you like this, folks.

Space is a premium in a Morgan isn't it ! My car has elasticated door pockets which I find dont really hold a great deal when not in use, gloves, hat, sunnys etc

Looking for a tad more space in my Mog it struck me that there is a bit of available space under my legs. I have my seat all the way back and it never (very rarely) needs adjusting up and down the rail, its a recliner so folds forward if I need in the back.

So I made up a wooded proto and tucked it up against the front edge of the seat with it sat on the seat rails.

It didnt interact with me getting in and out so decided to make up a an ali MogBox. Here are the results, one for each side. I may not fit the passenger side as Treacle puts her bag under her legs.

The mount for the boxes will be made to be able to quickly release the box if required. I dont have the car at the moment as its with the dealers getting fixed but will update when I get it back, soon I hope !

In the meantime I hope you like the work and pics.

cheers

Bones

Gorgeous work Bonesie. Shiny with a touch of Steampunk who could ask for more.
(the Mogbox name may be a tad confusing though, as that is what HillsAlive luggage - alas no more I believe - called their boot box).

I did not know that. Ive not 'officially' called it that. just a name I thought up. Could be MogTub or MogBin :-)

Thank you guys, you're too kind with your comments. I just enjoy making things and will try anything. First time ive made these so Im pretty chuffed though they do need a bit of tweaking.

Here is another box finished recently.
