Nor was I but when you order Honey Leather one would assume that Honey Leather would be used throughout. We have a friend who got Honey Leather seats AND Boot Straps.

I’m having a leather cover made for the wheel and going to stitch it on myself I hope !


What’s the bolt pattern on them?

I suspect it's whatever bits were laying around! wink Maybe they mass produced the straps and dash inserts all black to save time/hydes. Who knows.

Let's face it, the build quality and consistency isn't great, but we can't complain because no one else would have the balls/lunacy to make such a car in the first place!

It was interesting visiting the factory as there is a whole assembly line for the normal cars, and basically just a corner where they put together the 3 wheelers.

You have to remember that MMC since 1952 has been exclusively a 4 wheel motor car company, the M3W is a sideline that became more popular than expected with mostly new to Morgan owners, MMC will always remain a four wheeled sportscar focused company.

Funny, just tried* my new Moto Lita 4 spoke wheel and spacer today. Had to remember the indicator stalk is now a stretch away. Otherwise nice and comfy with more leverage on steering sharp corners.

Also tried the block-of-wood-under-the-seat-front which certainly added to the comfort, but the change in posture might mean I need to bring the pedals back a slot towards me...

* lockdown run to deliver a sample to the vets... the excuses we have to make these days!

It was one of my considerations when choosing the thickness of the spacer. You made me realise I didn’t even think of it today. Perfectly natural.

Don’t worry too much, I’ve already successfully argued that driving can legally be considered exercise. After all, riding a horse or fishing is, so why not driving. As long as you’re not “travelling” somewhere only to not do anything. There is nothing in the regulations about distance from home.

I got mine from Krazy Horse, they can get them made with the 4-bolt pattern of the Brooklands wheel.

JohnMat,

Please post a full size photo of your cockpit including dashboard and steering wheel if you have one. From what I can see looks great. Is your paint black or dark navy?


Thanks.

It was a check box option on the order form for my new M3W.

If you want to look at changing it I'd try contacting the factory and/or Allon White and/or Williams and/or http://www.summersupholstery.co.uk/
