Hi

I joined the club at the end of last year and I am now in the process of getting a previously unbuilt SWB Roadster on the road.

I started the project with my Uncle who sadly passed away last year. When we first started the project I was 20 - I'm now 41! We stripped an 1800 Marina and did an initial first fit but that is as far as we got.

Work pressures and two small boys has resulted in me enlisting the help of the ScottishKitCar Centre in East Lothian. The Marina axle is being replaced with IRS and a Zetec 2.0 power plant will be going in. There are some initial build photos on their Facebook page for those who are interested.

Hoping to get a few miles on the road in the summer!

Hi and welcome to the club. I've been watching this on Facebook and I did think about asking if they would like to do a build diary on this Marlin Club site but never got around to it. So as you are now a member how about it? It looks like a very interesting build and I'm sure that many members would be interested to see pics and read a few words about it.

Regards Scott

I would offer my car as a look see but as it's in a bit of state with the engine and box out and no interior I think it would be a good example of how not to do things :D
