Some Piccys of Morph - 101 FC

Last time I went out in Morph we rattled a few piccys off. I think he has
scrubbed up quite well. Still along way to go but we're getting there!

doesn't that front-mounted wheel impede yer airflow a bit?

horn, No more shall rouse them from their lowly bed."

Early days yet. They were fitted there on some models so I remain quietly
confident that it'll be ok.

Theres a humoungous gap between the chassis rails for air to be drawn up and
my logic is that the wheel will cause low pressure encouraging the air up
and through the fan. The Radiator is set back quite a bit from the front.
Local running has shown no noticable increase on the temp and internally in
the cab it's as hot as it's ever been.

Just been bunging on a pair of HIF's so once I'm ready for the road I'll do
some more road test.

My mount is very home made but easily removable with no damage to the front
end.

I did consider the other day if it does get hot on long runs , turning the
wheel so that the offset is the other way around thus allowing more air
through.

I didn't like that plate you made for the wheel studs ! Can I persuade
you to accept a free 8mm steel plate, with 3 predrilled holes at the
October meet up.

Snot really finished in those piccys, There is a plate welded across between
the angle and the old wheel carrier. Then there are two pieces of angle
going verticle above the shackle bolts with a horizontal piece of angle
joining them to the top of the old wheel carrier. The two top corners are
then bolted through the grill by four bolts to angled plates with captive
nuts welded on which in turn are bolted to the inner tunnel with four bolts
each side and a 4mm ally plate to spread the load of the four bolts. If
anything the end result it rather over engineered.... It's been subject to
the "Missing link" hanging from the wheel and bouncing up and down like a
kid in a trampoline shop and passed the test with flying colours. Weakest
part is probably the two 3/4 inch bolts through the shackle eyes.

But yes , spare plate is always welcome ;0)

Mum did a cracking job of most of the stripping I have to say. It was
supposed to be Sis who did it as part of the deal for me doing all the
welding on JLO. I guess I work too fast! So credit where credit is due...
THANKS MUM!!!

As for the paint I thought it was suitably neutral so as not to look too
military (well as non military as a exmilitary 101 can get!) while still
being able to sneak in to the military show IYSWIM. Comes from watching too
many home improvement / sales programs, "Its a nice neutral blank canvas for
the next owner to make theiir mark on". Not that I'm planning getting rid or
owt.

The other bonus to the paint work on this occasion is I don't feel obliged
to flat off the coarse bits :0)

I think given sufficient encouragement, othahalf might get the job done,
although its progress is getting slower and with increasing noise on startup
:o)

Nice job Lee, am aiming for a similar colour myself.

Paint man special offer 5 litres at 25, I was intending doing him limestone
gloss but at that price who could resist!. I also thing the gloss shows up
the "character" too much.

Bargain. I was going to go for a sand colour with a satin finish. As you
said, bit too much character for gloss.
