Progress on Morgan

Fortunately "Morgan" the Triumph (named in honour of its saviour) had been loved once.

Inside the car and boot was virtually every part from its partial dismantling. All the bumpers still had their bolts in with greased captive nuts and rubber washers, all the doors fittings where in separate plastic bags, door cards and carpets were neatly stacked in the boot.

Most things needed no more than a good clean and they were ready for refitting.

Chris witor should have a enhanced pension fund after the last few weeks - that said its amazing how easily you can rebuild a basically rustfree but mechanically worn 53 year old car!

Bumpers on, badges fitted and starting to look a little more loved
I knew that the tyres all needed replacement and decent 13" tyres are not really available in Sweden -   
I took the plunge and ordered 7 x 15 Minilites and a set of 195/65 snow tyres - looks the part!
Note the rear old registration is the original - BD suffix means originally registered in Norrbotten - the furthest north Swedish county. I am missing one of the current plates AYF876 - assigned in 1972 - but fortunately the car is still legally in existence and I have the current Euro spec ownership papers. its tax free and next year MOT free too.
The door cappings were in a dreadful state but after stripping the flaked varnish with a razor blade - very time consuming -  I found the veneer was fine - so this is how they look with 4 coats of gloss polyurethane.

Amazing rustfree floorpans - just a bit of scaley stuff that I have rust treated and now primed

Interior starting to come together - nice patina!
