    Itís almost as if some people donít really want to sell.
    Or is it because people who are not members of the club, canít post Ďfor saleí or has that rule been lifted?

    If I have to deal through a third party, there will be no deal. Stick it on eBay with a full description.

    Three core radiator, Renault Clio vented front discs.

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

    Is that the going rate for a registered Roadster that looks like itís due a full rebuild (no offense intended) or does it just look worse in the picture?

    This car has been for sale on Facebook for about 1 year and has not sold. When it first went on I contacted him and he wanted £3500 ono. Lets just say he was not favourable to my honest opinion on what it is worth.
    The guy is not English, Portuguese I think, so he might not truly understand the British Kit Car market and the expected values of such projects.
    When he says it "owes" him £2250 he will be counting his hours on the project as he is a professional mechanic so in reality, the home builder would not count this in.
    He bought this car from eBay about 3/4 years ago and I think it went for around £1250 at that time.
