I don't know of a diy kit , but Morgans used to offer this as an option on new cars.

Defendall used to sponsor Russell Pattwerson's Roadster when he first started racing in the Aero Racing Challenge , they may be an option.

However , beware , I am told that the secret to getting an "invisible" result is in the application rather than the product. Morgan has many differing curves of very different radii at the front end . My take would be to leave it to the professionals.

I would suggest a call to Russell Patterson (Revolutions, Perth) as I seem to remember Defendall developed a set in conjunction with RPM...
I think that is what Russell told us during a visit there in 2011 (towards the end of our Le-Jog trip Andy smile ). Mind you as that was 8 years ago... !

I agree.. it wasn't easy getting a good finish on the flat surface of the wing tread, let alone all the curvy bits! It would drive you mad, get the guys that know to do it.

No, have a word with young Craig Jezzard on here he has very successfully covered his wings. There are pictures of the finished article on here somewhere.

SAE, these are the chaps that the factory use, so they have all the relevant patterns

Covertech Midlands Ltd, 01527 893712

They did a fantastic job on mine & they use 3M Venture Shield which is slightly 'self repairing'

SAE, Dependent on where you live, I would consider contacting "Ultimate Auto" on ben@ultimateauto.co.uk The Memsahib and I went to a Lotus day at Long Stratton Motors who are Morgan service agents.
We had a live demonstration of the fitting of plastic film to the front of an Elise which was very impressive. We had a really good close up look at the finish and it was almost impossible to see the join.
They are based in Cambridge so I don't know if that would be of any help to you.


Here for a good time not a long time!!
