Progress to date …(hope you're not bored !!!!)

NO FEMALE CONTENT OR COMMENTS ON WOMEN IN GENERAL !!!

It is only when you undertake a project like this that you realise how each Morgan is different in measurements ..even on the same car from side to side !!!

I have not made any changes to the top itself and only fitted 2 removable body fittings as per the LM62 fittings.

So I had to modify the spare pair of side screens .

Simply had to strip the screens and elongate the slots in the stainless steel fittings.

As I'm sure you know stainless is not easy to drill so I bought a 10mm Dormer bit (£8),measured many times,drilled a hole with lots of lubricant and then using an angle grinder (my favourite tool!) elongated the slot


So far so good !!!..Its actually great to drive around without the lower half in this warm spell.

I have decided to make some removable lower parts from shiny shiny aluminium .

Thoughts on cardboard template please ?

Notice fitted cockpit vents.

I don't have a cardboard template to give you my thoughts but IMHO it would look nice in white.

Looks good Kev. I also think white might look better than shiny aluminium. Maybe you could make them in aluminium then paint them if you're not happy with the look, after all it's you that you need to please more than us (and you'll never get a consensus, that's the beauty of being able to mod. Mogs. to our own taste).

I'd go for body colour whilst maintaining the integrity of the racing white circle, to me it will look unbalanced otherwise IMHO as Steve says though it's your choice only.

The roof itself is looking really good.

Remember the two colour rule..!

Old English White roof, so that roundel needs changing to match, and either match the lower window to that or match the body colour.

But shiny aluminium..? Who on earth would have THAT on their car..??

Agree, body colour or ivory to match the roof and change your roundels to Ivory (or whatever that creamy colour roof is)
