    I am rebuilding an early Marina based Roadster. I have a rear tub but it is the one with the top edge crudely riveted to an aluminium plate and supported by a hoop. Not the greatest of mouldings and not easy to finish well.
    I would like to fit one of the later body tubs with a return edge on the top. I am guessing it would be a fairly straightforward swap.
    So - does anyone have one for sale? I am based in Bedfordshire and happy to collect within a couple of hours drive.

    Cheers, Robin

    PS.I am looking for one WITHOUT a spare wheel well. :-)

    Still looking. The one that Danny offered me had a spare wheel well so wasn't suitable.
    Cheers Robin

    Hi Robin
    I stand to be corrected, but I do no think the later rear tub with the return edge you are looking for was produced without the well.
    You maybe looking for something that does not exist.
    Could you not modify the one that Danny has by removing the well and re-fibreglassing? Or modify the one you have a create a return edge?

    Aha - so it seems the spare wheel well is standard if you have the rolled top edge. I'll have to think again....

    Cherrs, Robin

    You are correct it seems. Unfortunately my fibreglassing skills are not up to either of your alternative suggestions :-(.
    I'll have to think again it seems.
