Being Mogless at the moment, I dug out the Morgan Owners` Bible to see what I could do when I get my car out of quarantine.
There on page 36 was a quote "Samples of other veneers are thin on the ground....". Has anyone spotted any other funnies hidden away in Mr. W`s work of art?
Incidentally "bubinga" does not have an "r" in it - sorry to be pedantic but it`s the ex-teacher in me.
Hope you are all keeping safe and sane out there. read

This one - “ ......a flying head restraint may damage your Morgan bodywork”.

Seriously an excellent book Dave and one that I wish I had had when I ordered my first Morgan.

Shouldn't this thread be in the soapbox. I have a horrible image in my brain.
