    Thanks. I was wondering about that. My five speed is from a 1.6 Capri but has a large diameter shaft. My current box I haven't yet seen, on the bench.

    When I swapped mine the propshaft was ok for length. I thing there is a 1cm difference in the length required and it was easily taken up by the sliding joint

    Hi Chris,

    Nothing to do with your propshaft I brought the roadster off you. sorry lost your email and contact details. just thought you would like an update. engine and gearbox and back in the panels have all been painted black with red pearl.

    when i get back home from holiday will start to put all together ( my aim is to have it on the road by easter)

    DVLA came to the party and the V5 has been updated from the marina to show a 1972 marlin roadster.

    Surely this can't be right as the Marlin Roadster was only launched in 1979?

    I assume you still have the Marina Reg number? My '78 Roadster has the Marina plate and Vin Number. I don't know its actual date of birth '80 something I supose. Won't yours be tax free now? Mine should be soon. Are the DVLA being very cooperative now?

    Hi Hairy Dave, for what it's worth your car is quite a late one, the kit left the factory in August 1990

    I was hoping to have mine designated as Historic this year and had a letter back from DVLA which stated:

    "The legislation was introduced to exempt vehicles manufactured prior to 1st January 1978 from the payment of VED. This came into force on 1st April 2018. The intention from H M Treasury is to introduce a legislative clause every year so that vehicles manufactured 40 years ago will become exempt from VED.'

    Mine has a V5 of 18/10/78 which means I will have to wait until April.

    Hope this helps.

    Adrian
