    Given that the business is up for sale it would seem doubtful

    Terry, MD at Marlin, says they are continuing to supply parts etc so try them. We should try and support the business to ensure it continues to be a going concern.

    Hi - The stainless surrounds were made by R L Keat & Sons (01872 862900). Neither they nor Marlin will have any in stock - I bought out Keats stock and sold them off virtually at cost ages ago. They may have the patterns and be willing to make one, but it won't be cheap, especially as a one-off. If you get away with £200 I'd be surprised! Good luck - Dave

    I too would like to replace the surrounds on my Cabrio windscreen, the initial install (not my work I hasten to add) saw them cut too short and then little fillers added to each end, not the neatest of results. Perhaps there may be others wishing to purchase some, this could potentially lower the cost per person.
