Finally finished the louvers. Now it's time to paint the frame tub and start assembly.

Made some progress today. I received the louver panels and have started cutting them into the rear of the body. These relieve the pressure bubble that builds up at the rear of the car. The old Morgans had these and I like the look. I also cut a hole in the side so the rear axle can be removed without removing the shocks.

The rear shocks that came with the car are unusable so I bought a pair of Honda GL1200 air shocks in e-bay. They turned out to be too stiff. These have 2 springs inside the upper portion so I'll remove one of these and try again. The idea is that as one or two people get into the car the ride height changes. My plan is to add a Honda air compressor, a switch and a pressure gauge so I can adjust the ride height depending on load. More to come on this later.
