    I think its important to help all Marlin owners Danny Nelson helped me find mine, I then joined the club as its the best way to find help and give help for Marlin owners. Whilst owning the Hunter, numerous people have helped me on here with spares and advice, it really is a great club and thats because of us the membership, but more importantly the people that give up their time to run it

Sadly there is a small slit in the roof and which would need repairing and I think the best solution to that would be to remove the top panel and stitch back in a new one.

    The slit came to life as I was fitting/stretching the hood and sticking it to the cant rail ( I have a spare one of those as well if she is interested).

    I would recommend driving here ( I live in the Chilterns about 6 miles north of High Wycombe and about a 1 1/2 hour drive from Southhampton. I am sure Mrs. H can supply copious quantities of tea and bickies while Ann makes sure it is exactly what she wants.

    Hello Derek,

    Ann has decided she wants a beige hood now so the hood is back on the market. (I am sorry Ann but I can't resist the following comment but I think you are going to find it difficult to track down matching driving shoes and kit bag - it is probably a bloke thingħħ)

    I will keep the cant rail until I have sold the hood as if someone is trying to build a hood system from scratch they will need one

    Hi Keith,

    I am hoping to get a hood sorted as I only have a frame at the moment, nothing else! I was planning to get a beige one also to match my interior. A cant rail would be the next piece of the jigsaw.

    Hi Michael.

    Ann has decided she wants a beige hood so my black one is back up for grabs. As you were the next in order to ask about it I am coming to you. I am rather concerned about the distance as it means you will not be able to see it before buying. If you are still interested I guess we will have to get by with photos. Can you send me a PM with your email address in.

    Best regards

    Keith

    Hi Keith

    Is this still available and if so do you know if it will fit the YKC roadster - ( shortened Sierra back end ) ?

    Cheers
