10-05-2013 10:48 PM THE LAST MORRIS 48 Z ENTRY
A COUPLE OF PICS THANKS TO THE NEW OWNER WHO HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO SEND THEM TO ME. THE LITTLE MORRIS Z HAS BEEN ENGINEER TESTED,APPROVED AND REGISTERED AND AS YOU CAN SEE IS NOW ON THE ROAD. HE SAYS ' THE Z CRUISES NICELY ON THE HIGHWAY, IS EASY TO DRIVE, RIDES SMOOTH AS AND THE AIRCON SYSTEM WORKS A TREAT. AS THE ONLY RODDED MORRIS Z IN AUSTRALIA IT ATTRACTS IT'S FAIR SHARE OF ADMIRERS '
SOUNDS LIKE HE IS HAPPY LITTLE HOTRODDER!!!!!!!!!!
SO WHAT WILL I DO NEXT? ON A COUNT BACK THIS UNIT WAS BUILD NO.79 IN A WIDE RANGE OF AUTOMOTIVE BUILDS BUT AS I CONTEMPLATE RETIREMENT AFTER NEARLY 50 YEARS OF PROJECTS I DOUBT THAT I WILL EVER REACH BUILD 80.
GOODBYE AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL

WE ARE NOW UPGRADED TO WIRELESS INTERNET FOR OUR TRIP SO WE THOUGHT YOU MAY LIKE TO SEE A COUPLE OF THE PICS WE TOOK OF THE PROJECT BEFORE WE DROVE IT OVER TO A MATES PLACE FOR STORAGE.

THE NEW OWNER HAS PLANS TO FINISH THE Z AND I WILL TRY AND POST A FEW PICS FROM HIM WHEN IT'S REGISTERED AND ON THE ROAD*** CHEERS AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR PROJECTS.

FRONT FENDERS ARE NOW PAINTED AND FITTED ALONG WITH ALL THE LIGHTS. OUR BUCKET SEATS AND SEATBELTS HAVE ALSO BEEN INSTALLED SO WE COULD DRIVE THE "Z" OUT INTO THE DAYLIGHT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 5 YEARS. WE STILL HAVE TO FINISH WIRING THE FRONT LIGHTS, FIT PULL RODS TO THE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES AND THEN IT'S ONTO ALL THE TRIM WORK. HOWEVER MOST OF THAT WILL HAVE TO WAIT BECAUSE WE HAVE RAN OUT OF TIME BEFORE WE HEAD OFF ON OUR TRIP. THE MORRY WILL HAVE TO GO INTO STORAGE UNTIL WE RETURN AROUND NOVEMBER TO DECEMBER THIS YEAR.
SEE YOU ALL LATER.

FRONT DOORS HAVE BEEN PAINTED AND TEST HUNG TO CHECK THE LOCKS AND HINGING. WITH EVERYTHING OK WE FITTED THE LEFT DOOR WITH SIDE MIRROR, DOOR HANDLE AND SLIDING GLASS AS WELL AS FITTING THE PINCHWELD SEAL AROUND THE PILLARS. WE ALSO SCREWED ON THE LEFT DOOR INTERIOR TOP METAL TRIM, FLIP HANDLE AND TRIM CARD WE MADE SOME WEEKS AGO. WHILE THE DOOR PAINT WAS DRYING WE STARTED SETTING UP THE WIRING AND PLUGS FOR THE TILT FRONT SYSTEM

OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS WE HAVE PAINTED AND FITTED THE REAR FENDERS, LIKEWISE THE REAR DOORS COMPLETE WITH TINTED POLY CARBON AND OUR CUSTOM STEEL FRAMES THAT WE MADE SOME WEEKS AGO. THEY STILL NEED A BIT OF ALIGNING BUT SEAL NICELY AGAINST THE PINCHWELD WITH NO SIGN OF RATTLES. WE DECIDED AGAINST USING RUBBERS AROUND THE POLY AS WE CONSIDERED THE FLEXING OF THIS MATERIAL MAY MAKE IT PRONE TO POPPING OUT UNDER PRESSURE WHEN THE FRONT SCREEN IS OPENED. THE FRAMES ARE FITTED WITH CONSEALED BOLTS IN 8 LOCATIONS THAT PASS THROUGH BOTH THE DOOR SKINS AND THE POLY TO MAKE A COMPLETE UNIT. WE USED SEALER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE DOOR SKINS.
THE FRONT FENDERS ARE PREPED AND PRIMED READY FOR FINAL COAT AS SOON AS THE WEATHER ALLOWS. SEEMS EVERY TIME WE PICKUP THE SPRAY GUN IT TURNS ON THE RAIN.
