Welcome Mark from a very wet North East Scotland. You have a lot of work ahead but I'm sure it will be satisfying when you get onto the open road. Enjoy. santa2

Welcome Mark, I do hope your Morgan experiences provide you with all that you could hope for, having a car lift will come in very handy. thumbs

Welcome to TM. Like K I have been rebuilding my 1976 Morgan 2 seater since May 2019. Starting to put it back together now. Its taken longer than expected due to Covid19. Like K states, take lots and lots of pictures. Any answers to questions can be found here.

Thanks Guys for the warm welcome, a pleasure!
I am just collecting all possible background know-how, the internet makes it quite easy! Next step is to remove the bonnet, grille, cowl and wings. After both the engine and gearbox will follow, finally the frame will be removed. I hope to achieve this till end of January. My main objective is to avoid damages to the paint as I haven´t planned a new external painting.
An issue is the long manufacturing time of a new chassis...
Rgds., Mark

Hi Mark - welcome to the forum and the world of Morgan. My Morgan (C6622) is almost the same as yours. I started my restore back in April. Maybe some of the infos and experience I documented on my blog are helpful for your project: FixingC6622

I will send you my contact details via a personal message
Regards
Tim

Do you need a new frame. The good thing about the now 'old' Morgan frame is that you can cut out bits and weld in new bits. I was reading a post a while back from across the pond and he was saying that when racing and after the crashes a big hammer comes in handy!
