Hi everyone I have finally got back to doing some more of the restoration on my morry .
Just finished adding a custom dashboard , wood panels & extra gauges
.Had a bit of rewiring to do but at least another thing to tick off the list .
Also made custom exhaust extractors so now have the exhaust fitted but need a radiator before I get her going again .
Been looking at fitting an alloy radiator but haven't found a alloy copy over here so looks like the closest one I can get will be a Honda civic with some modifications .
Now to move on to the rest of the body work.

looking good mate ~~ more :pics:

I have seen alloy repo morry radiators on fleabay ... might be worth a look if you want a morry one or better still just have your original one re cored ~ about the same cost as the alloy one

cheers
We're friendly ~ have a look see
