    The owners initials? - seeing as the number plate is MG too?



    The paint on this Roadster looks fabulous - I'd love to know who did it, and what they charge, as I would like to paint my Cabrio this year.

    Anyone know the painter?

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    I see the car is no longer on Ebay max bid was 4295. The reply to the question about the MG badge probably sums up the owner and the price went up!!!
