    Re: Marlin roadster for restoration/project

    Sold at £2400. Shame it was so late or I would have watched. With the end of lockdown in sight maybe people are in need of fun. Though maybe not this summer for that one. Anybody here bought it?

    Cheers, Danny, just when I am halfway through cutting my LWB hard top down to SWB, and I'm not giving up now! How about pics? Dave

    Re: Roadster for sale East Kilbride

    Hi Dave, cheers for that. I did wonder if 'someone' was pushing the price up and got caught out. I am not interested in buying it, honest! If it had been a Berli, like the one also in that area maybe...

    Re: Roadster for sale East Kilbride

    I wonder if it will go the same way as one a couple of weeks ago? Sold before the end, withdrawn. It does look a lot for a project with a seized engine. We shall see.

    Re: Roadster roof

    I used to enjoy gas welding on bodywork but I find Mig with a 'Domestic' set can be a bit hit and miss. Easier with flux-cored wire outdoors where all my welding is done. On heavier gauge, I like...

    Re: Roadster roof

    So far so good thanks, Dave. What made me wonder was, some looked very professional but some of the MIG did look a bit beginerish. It would be nice to see the finished article. I will try to take...

    Re: Roadster roof

    Somewhere in the Marlin Club there is a mould for a LWB Roadster. I have a shell off that mould which I am cutting to fit a SWB. Not easy and too cold. Cutting a section out and getting the edges to...
  12. Re: LWB refurbishment - based on marina 1.7 O series

    Re engine stands. I inherited a three-wheeled one. It was not very stable nearly dumping my B ser engine on the floor!! I put a crossbar by the single wheel and put blocks under it. Now it is stable...

    Re: Alternator problem… again.

    First ring the reconditioner and ask them to sort it. If they won't help tell them that you intend to get someone else to fix it and you expect to recover the money from them. This may well be the...

    Re: LWB Roadster wind deflectors

    The brackets on mine are flat brass bent to an appropriate angle and screwed to the front of the windscreen frame with a gap to allow the side screen to slide under. Cutouts allow the buttons...

    Re: LWB Roadster wind deflectors

    My 'Elephant ears' usually fitted have 2 brackets screwed to 2 threaded holes on the front edge of the screen. Be careful drilling the holes! Then the side screens are cut to clear and stitched...
  17. Re: Roadster project, no engine or box, Heanor Derbys

    Maybe a Berli is about to become a roadster? or a Marlin Cobra. I do remember seeing a Dutton Cobra on ebay a few years ago! I think the only bit of dutton was the V5.

    Re: Alternator problem… again.

    Its a possibility, but unlikely, usually A loose belt squeals on starting when the alternator puts the power back in the battery. My suggestion is to ring the 'reconditioner' and tell them your...

  22. Re: Roadster project, no engine or box, Heanor Derbys

    Looks a reasonable project Re; the engine and gearbox, 'If you can recognize it, you can rebuild it!' Bit of T cut and the body will be good as new. I just wish it was a Berli.

    Re: Fixed my heater fan

    Lovely job Patrick. If you are really cold the noise of the heater wouldn't matter! Did you do the other side before it comes loose? I assume the fans were just a push fit. A solution I have used on...

    Depends on the goo but warm, a Stanley scraper, wire wool, and WD40, Acetone, cellulose thinners, and patience. Good luck!

    Yes Patrick it doesn't do to rush into things. Being hasty is asking for trouble.
