    Hello,

    I own an early Marlin built Ford suspension / BMW engine Sportster with the drivers side roll hoop. The car did originally have a hood, and there are two 19mm dia. sockets for a hood frame either side of the body tub in front of the roll hoop, but unfortunately frame and hood were mislaid before i purchased the car. Lack of a hood is restricting my use, and with Marlin not able to supply, i think i'm going to have to get one made.

    Would anyone with a similar car be able to share sketches/photo's of their hood, frame, windscreen fastenings etc.. I suspect its too much to hope that someone on here has been down the same route and can recommend a company, but if that information exists as well then i'd be grateful for contact details. Obviously if anyone has a hood they no longer need, i'd certainly make an offer for it.

    Thanks,

    Andrew
