    Collected my nice new addition yesterday YAH400J GT6 based LWB TM Roadster it has now returned home and resides only a couple of miles from where it was originally constructed took my friend with me who worked for Marlin from near beginning to end of production in Plymouth, brought back a few memories for him, looking through the history it appears to have lots of monies spent but little use over the years and only needs small things to be put right, one or two things missing was the frame for the soft top would anyone have dimensions for this or one up for sale also missing side windows the soft top has a zip fitted so would guess this was a later type windows without the frame work,
    Thanks

    Somewhere in my garage I have a hood frame for a SWB Marina based Roadster which will probably do. It's been modified so that it is in 4 pieces instead of the usual 2 for ease of storage behind the seats.
