    Re: BRITAX Rear Light Screws

    Hi - You could use stainless screws, lots of suppliers who have all sorts of obscure threads and weird heads, often seen at shows too. My preferred supplier is D. Middleton & Son who specialise in...

    Re: Cabrio windscreen surround

    Hi - The stainless surrounds were made by R L Keat & Sons (01872 862900). Neither they nor Marlin will have any in stock - I bought out Keats stock and sold them off virtually at cost ages ago. They...

    Re: Yorkshire Weekend 1-2 September

    Hi All

    Yorkshire Weekend 1-2 September

    Once again we are having a weekend in Yorkshire. We will be based at Studfold Campsite at Lofthouse in Nidderdale as last year. Best to approach from Pateley Bridge, the road is quite narrow, but the...

    Re: Windscreen

    Hi John
    I summarised my windscreen experiences in Pitstop 194, and probably on the forum too. The upshot of it was that the insurance company gave me the number of Auto Windscreens, and they then...

    Re: Tyre pressures

    Hi - I usually run at 22psi, as per FAQs. I'm sure that was the recommended value from Marlin at one time, but they might have changed their minds. Always a possibility!

    Re: Aerial location

    Hi - I fitted an electric aerial in just the same place as Stewart, and it has worked fine for 12 years. I bought it in Maplins as it was the only one I could find which would fit, those from...

    Re: Tatton Park

    It would be interesting to know if other clubs had a problem. The other big kitcar club at Tatton is usually the Italian Replicas. Conveniently, they occupy the adjacent stand at Stoneleigh, so we...

    Re: Cabrio door lock release cable.

    This is a bit of a minefield as there are several variables. Firstly, LWB Cabrios require longer cables as the doors are 2" longer than SWB. The cables came in several lengths depending on fitment -...

    Re: Exhaust Manifold Problems

    Hi - The manifolds were made specifically for the Cabrio as far as I know. The offside set was particularly special, as the steering column went through them. Any other aftermarket ones will probably...

    Re: Exhaust Manifold Problems

    Hi - I recall from somewhere that stainless is not a good idea for manifolds. Fine for the silencers, but not the manifolds. My V8 has mild steel manifolds and has done nearly 30k with no cracking. I...

    Yorkshire Weekend

    With the unfortunate loss of Tatton Park, we need something local to take the Marlin and caravan to. Unfortunately in my current circumstances, Hereford will be a bit far this year, and Shropshire...

    Re: Cabrio Door locks

    Hi - I looked into this in some detail about 10 years ago. Unless the builder was going really off-piste, the door furniture all came from the Ford Sierra. In fact most other locks are too bulky to...
  14. Re: Passenger Window motor not working (again!)

    Hi Pete - Two points raised by this thread. (1) There should be a few holes drilled in the bottom of the door to drain any water, as detailed in the build manual (Marlin not following their own...

    Lovely car and photos. It was you I think that had a problem with wet feet, wasn't it? Don't know why I didn't think at the time, but I suspect the rain gets in round the wiper spindles. The...

    Great to see you all in Yorkshire - great scenery and great company. Hope Richard/Pat & Ben got back safely without further incident. Let us know how the repairs are progressing! We've caught up with...

    Re: Yorkshire Weekend 30-31 July

    Hi Steve
    I hadn't forgotten you! If you can be at the campsite by 10 that should be fine. May not leave till a bit later, but you can have time to say hello to everyone. Please note that there is a...
  19. Re: WARNING - Hunter drivers check your floor !

    Hi - Bit surprised that there was any ply under there. The build manual makes no mention, and the seats in my Cabrio are bolted straight onto the galvanised steel floor, using penny washers to spread...

    Hi All
    Really enjoyed the weekend in Suffolk, and subsequent week on Norfolk coast. Ringo says he enjoyed it too, and hopes he didn't annoy you too much by barking at the horses!! We contrived to...

    Re: welshpool anyone?

    Hi - We'll eat in the pub on Fri, but we'll have to leave Ringo (the pup) in the van. If he plays up we may have to take the food back to the van to eat it! If all goes well we'll probably eat in the...

    Response has been a bit slow, judging from the above, although a few people have said they will try to attend. I realise there are other calls on time, and it may clash with main holidays. However,...
