Shown here is the rear mud guards I made from scratch for the Morris J Type van. Made from cold drawn panel steel I have shaped them to suit the new drive line, the body mods and the shape matches closely to the modified front guards so that they don't look out of place. I am pretty happy how this custom Morris delivery is turning out.

Morris J Type van with hand fabricated rear doors

The rear doors on this little Morris J we are working on were pretty sad and the hinges were that worn I decided to start from scratch. The old doors were going to cost alot to repair and in the end they still would have been rough, it would have been like trying to make caviar from a pigs ear.  Its not a decision to take lightly as it is an expensive exercise to make hinges from scratch and the doors from scratch and get it all working, but the end result is what you are chasing.  The customer now has doors with a good well planned out rubber seal, a proper stepped overlap in the middle, hignges that don't let the doors swing around and hit the body,a high tensile long hinge pin, inner skins that unscrew to allow panel repairs and bear claw latches on both doors so they dont fly open.  The back window was modelled off the original Morris J van doors, of which incedentally is not symetrical, and it is the shape of this back window that makes it instantly reconisable so I went to great pains to keep it accurate to original.

Custom made 50's style dash board top for the 1958 Morris J Type

The Morris J type vans were never this fancy.  This one a 1958 model is a full custom build up. I wanted to capture that 50's style dash of the aussie and yankee cars of that era, even though the Morris never had a dash as such, it was more like a small turret with a steering wheel. An under dash brake booster and master cylinder is hidden behind all this too.

Hinged bonnet for a Morris J Type van and custom sheet metal lower panel

The bonnet on a Morris J Type use dzues style fasteners, so it comes completely off.  They can be problematic, the paint chips around them and not to mention if the bonnet falls over and dents while its off.  So Kustom Bitz has, as part of our restoration of this old J type, made the bonnet hindge.  A custom made bonnet frame was made and the original bonnet skin was repaired and attached to our new bonnet frame.  This also meant a custom lower front panel had to be made also because of the bonnet shape, to allow it to open into a slight recess.  More pics can be found by following our Facebook page. 

Morris J Type Van front mud guard widened and rust repaired

Kustom Bitz is currently restoring and modifiying a 1958 Morris J Type delivery van. Shown here is the wooden buck I made to be able to repair and shape the existing mud guard piece and widen it a little for fat tyres.  This mud guard has had more hits than the Beetles but I managed to work it back into shape so it can be used again. You just can't buy good guards for this model so that requires us to go the extra mile to make a properly fitting front pair of mud guards. To watch the build progress follow Kustom Bitz on Facebook.
