    good q MG, i am undecided , at the moment i am tending towards the morgan 3 wheeler mounting method , with the arches v close to the wheel ...not sure how to do this without the struts being above the arch , which i don't want . maybe a web welded to the side of the arch extending down .,they weigh about 4 pounds each so not bad .

    You will be shocked at how much arches can wobble in use on the road - the mounts will need to be extremely rigid to avoid tyre contact - especially if you try to keep them tight to the tyres.

    I've made my mounts in 3 sections and 3 different thicknesses and bolted them together via a rubber grommet . Beat the crap out of them for 5 years and not even a crack .

    I have used square and round 10mm solid bar - this allows you to bend it in any shape without kinks that tube gets - so you can do curves etc to follow the radius and tyre section - bit heavy bit no heavier really than say 20 dia tube. I have two arms rising up from the backplate/hub on each mudguard, with captive nuts welded to rear axle backplates and similar on the caliper carrier at the front

    These are fiberglass from Hardy County - with the steel arms running across the underside and fiberglass bonded - 300 miles a couple of weekends ago and no failures. If you want a more detailed photo of the mounts let me know

    We could do with more pics of the car, not just the mudguards mounts

    Well today was slightly surreal , and did not go as expected .


    Due to a bit of a back prob , i had to go for a MRI ,which was a new experience for me .

    I trolled up and waited for my turn , unfortunately due to me having forgotten i had my bondage pants on , i had to go bare bum gown mode ,but that was ok, just a bit cold on initial reclination .

    The nurse showed me this white tube MRI thing ,just about big enough to fit in without a stiffy , and as i eyed it dubiously she announced i would have to be in there for 45 MINUTES ,without moving , at all.

    she gave me a little grey bladder to squeeze if i felt the need to for extraction ,and then proceeded to fit me with ear plugs ,and then ear pads to drown out the noise ..i was previously unaware of all this , or how tiny the tube was. and yes i do get a bit claustrophobic at times .

    Onto the machine gurney i went ,and the head is slightly lower than the torso , so swallowing was also a bit of a non starter .


    the conveyor fed my quivering grey faced anatomy into the machine (bit like on Thunderbird 1) and i lay there looking at the ceiling 2 inches from my face 6ft inside the tube .

    wonder what happens now i thought , my query was answered by a cacophony of squeaks rumbles and concussions , that sounded like a mob of gorillas had been let loose in the percussion dept of the bbc special effect wing . incredibly , some of the noises actually made a tune , so i spent a little time thinking up lyrics .

    i also spent more time imagining medusa in lots of different colours ,and trying to go to sleep and trying not to look at the ceiling 2 INCHES AWAY .

    she popped up on the tannoy with a cheery little "all ok in there " to which i replied "gnarffle phnapple yup" .

    At some point i suppose it was all over ,but its a bit of a blur because at this stage things took a slight turn.

    the conveyor of death started to move , but then bumped to a halt and a slight smell occured (not sure if this was me or the machine). up she popped on the tannoy ,

    "its ok not to worry we will have you out of there in a jiffy "

    now being british , i have a pretty good capacity for voice stress analysis , and she was definately not happy .

    lo and behold ,tannoy girl

    "there is a little problem with the machine , it appears you have a unique and peculiar brain wave pattern that has exceeded the magnetic resonance feedback loop ,and the scanner has decided to keep you in there for the time being ,its the first AI scanner in the world and it thinks it loves you ."

    oh great ,i thought , that makes me what ? ,the human representation of a giant love lolly stuck in a Artificial intelligence scanners vajoojoo...wonderfull.


    the nurse went and got some help , and the next thing i know they are sticking long streamers of duct tape to my feet ,and all heave ho ing to pull me out ,unfortunately , at this point they realise that the gown being open at the back coupled with the heat of the machines operation/level or arousal means my back and lower components are glued firmly to the trolley ,like a top fuel slick after the burnout .


    some bright consultant comes up with the idea of cod liver oil and shoe horns , they set to with the shoe horns first , which just gives my love bite down my calves and will not release me from the AI machine of love .

    then the nurse turns up with a 25 litre bucket of cod liver oil , no idea why its in a black builders bucket.

    she walks towards the machine in her chrome 6 inch heels , takes a huge purler as she trips over one of the power cables (now pulsing in a frankly obscene pinkish colour) and throws the whole bucketfull over my feet and the floor of the torture chamber , a lot of also managing to enter the love tube and soak me.

    so there i am ,stuck in six foot of amorous MRI AI joojooo, soaked in oil ,with the ceiling still 2 INCHES away ,listening to a mob of nurse's skating all over the vinyl floor now covered in cod liver oil ,hanging onto each other ,the walls the machine , and one girl even sank her teeth onto my big toe for stability ,which i thought at the time was a bit much .

    later on i found out 3 girls had to be taken away on stretchers having down the splits by mistake and pulling various muscles not normally used to stretching that fast/far .

    there was also a fair bit of giggling now ensueing ,which i personally felt was in very bad taste ,almost as bad as the taste i now had in my mouth with all the oil .


    there was brief pause , and then the high muckety consultant had a brilliant idea ..

    one of the maintenance functions on the MRI was a high pressure purge to blow out cleaning fluids ...... his plan was to pack towels around my body ,then activate the pressure feed ,and push me out of the tube .

    i think they decided to ignore my muffled comments reflecting my concern at this approach , and they set to with a vigour, ramming blankets, towels ,pillows in the gaps around my oily body ,the fact the tannoy girl piped in and asked me for my autograph did not add to the calm zen state i was trying to assume .

    finally they were ready ,and the MRI love machine tilted 20 degrees, head down, as part of its normal cleaning fluids drain procedure ,preparatory to the air feed being applied for final cleaning .


    tannoy girl "ok,clear the room .initiating a gentle air pressure to the tube robert , counting down .5.....4.....3......2....1....."


    now ...... it might be me ,,,,but i do feel that a gentle air pressure is not exactly took place .....




    there was a slight silence , during which my inner voice went ..oh .nnooooo,,, then a massive blast of air , like the sound of a decompression chamber opening 5 minutes too early

    ........,and I was off !!

    my slippery gleaming ,now totally naked body shot out of the tube like a human cannonball , streaked through the air with no discernible parabola , and easily cleared the temporary wall partition lining the room ,it soared over the outstreched arms of the nurse's, all looking like they were doing the BE A TREE IN THE WIND part of a self discovery course , and flashed like a streak of lightning into the neighbouring room .


    unfortunately this was a delivery room ,and the head midwife was doing a training with another mob of nurses around her hanging on her every word , she was at this point crouched down in front of the expectant mother/victim discussing dilation and other disgusting stuff .

    STUFF being the operative word here , i landed on her bent back ,and as i skidded off gave her sufficient impetus to force her headlong into the barely expanded , inner thigh region of the expectant ,and now very very surprised m to be. (i heard later on after this experience the actual birth was a breeze)


    i finally came to rest on the laps of two of the nurse's ,and they tried to grab me ,but my oiliness meant all that happened was i got covered in a lot of red scratches , not easy to explain ones either..


    Finally i came to a halt on the floor and, using a pillar ,hauled myself to me feet , wincing as the oil ran onto the scratched parts of my body not normally used to scratches and oil.


    i looked around ,and finally my eyes started to focus on the scene ..

    the midwife was being extracted my two male orderlies from the m to b , who was having breathing problems ,two nurses were having hysterics shouting "anaconda" and pointing at my mid area , one nurse was looking at me and rubbing her hands together with a predatory gleam in her eye ,of the 3 nurses remaining that had not run away , two of them were trying to hide behind each other (looked like they were stuck in an invisible rotating door from above)

    and the last one was doing a sketch of me with a pencil and pad , and holding up her hand to scale my private components ! ...I mean !!!.... REALLY !


    in a stampede all the MRI nurses arrived ,and seeing the scene broke into a spontaneous round of applause /laughter .



    i went home .
