    Re: Unfiished Sportster for sale - winter project?

    It is being mis-advertised as "Registered as a BMW 325i" - it clearly isn't an E36 BMW 325i, and can not "be registered" as such.

    It is NOT registered as the Marlin Sportster that it is trying to...

    I would wholeheartedly agree: but go one step further and remove the front anti toll bar too!! Though I accept it introduces the issue of hard mounts and chassis strength when using the substitute...

    Is it just me having a “Man look”, or has my Cabrio build diary dropped off the Forum?

    I’ve just read your query under Roadsters.
    Do you have a Sportster and a Roadster? They are very different cars .

    Re: For Sale - LWB Cabrio Body Panels

    Honest answer is I do not know for sure. But I do know the original Sportster was based on the Cabrio from when it was Ford based: it then moved over to BMW E30 based, when I believe the chassis was...

    Are you planning to use cycle wings at the front?, or to make it as a Cabrio? The rear wings are different between a Sportster and Cabrio, but could probably be converted more easily than...

    Re: Marlin Hunter V8 - Dual servo

    Sticking brakes has been a common problem experienced by adopters of this dual servo: the return spring on the pedal is essential.

    Re: Marlin Hunter V8 - Dual servo

    Hi Monomer

    It is pleasing to see Hunter V8 owners are still adopting this huge brake improvement- it transforms the car from a “squeaky bum ride” into a sporty car you can push on with confidence....

    I made my own exhaust for my Cabrio and am probably on Mk1V version before I was happy with a quiet motorway cruise, but enough bark when I press the loud pedal.

    Re: Unfinished Cabrio V8 on eBay

    It’s a bit naughty calling it a V8 Cabrio when it doesn’t have an engine let alone a V8!

    Is it a LWB?

    Re: Ford based Sportster build manual

    Hi Andrew

    The Ford based Sportster was derived from the Ford based Cabrio, so one part of your information could come from the Cabrio build manual.
