    Re: Castle Combe Circuit 5th October 2019

    I've been meaning to ask, as I've been offered a place with the local Car Club, so I'm assuming this is not an 'Official' Marlin Club event then?

    Running-Board strip, End-Caps?

    Has anyone encountered these end-cap fittings for the running-board strips please?

    Lost one over the weekend and it looks to have been stuck on with double-sided tape.

    Day out at RHS Rosemoor (North Devon)

    Had a good day out at RHS Rosemoor, Vintage and Classic weekend. Lots of interest in the car.

    As we were the only Marlin, they put us in the M’s next to a Maserati.

    This is our hood, front frame:-

    Two flat strips, with an extra one on top (underneath)? You can probably work out the dimensions.

    It seals very well in Exmoor rain!
