How did you get the correct measurement of the curve of the transmission tunnel?


You could make a cardboard template, and keep cutting it yo get the right profile. Of if you have one of those devices that mould to skirting birds or architrave, that would make it easier.

Sensible suggestions, thanks. Especially as cardboard boxed are FREE !

Easy, measure width of your tunnel, halve it, set compass and draw the semi circle on some thick cardboard, test it (not forgetting a little clearance for the leather to wrap under & behind the plywood

Another project for me!

I think I'll include space for a coffee cup for those long journeys.

...I´m a newbie here in this part of the MOG world (I´m a 3-wheeler owner) but I just bought a 2010 roadster 4-seater and I was looking for several parts for this car.

As I know the problem of less storage space for my 3 wheeler I ordered a centre console / arm rest at this company in Germany - here you can find them:

http://www.mk-holztechnik.de/deutsch/morgan-zubehoer/zubehoer-innen/index.html

...the console is not that cheap but the quality is really amazing! And if you would like to produce it by yourself the pictures in their homepage could be a real help for you!
