    What about these?

    They are aftermarket side indicator repeaters for a Range Rover. Some members have fitted them to their Cabrio. Not sure if the Roadster is the same. You could message the seller to enquire about postage to Canada. You would require bulb holders with clear bulbs aswell.

    Quite a few Marlins appear to use the rubbolite M50 which appear to be available without too much problem if you google them.

    These definitely look good on roadsters
    I too have some of the horrible rubbolites sitting in my garage somewhere if anyone wants them, plus some of the rear clusters - i may have to rummage to find them.

    You need to be careful on later cars if you plan to go sidelights in the headlight and indicators on the wing as after April 86 the requirement distance for the marker/side light inboard of the edge of the vehicle was decreased from 510mm to 400mm.

    A Mk2 roadster is only just 400mm to the very edge of the headlight.

    Also drivers of modern cars coming towards you in the dark are unaware of the fact that the car is wider than the lights they can see. I discovered this when my O/S sidelight failed and it was a very close thing!!!!
