    Has anyone tried to fit some chrome bumpers over the chassis bumpers? I’m wondering if something like pattern MG TD ones might fit, but I don’t want to buy some to find I can’t fit them!

    Good morning, regarding bumpers for your Marlin , i made my ones in the shape of half an MG badge in alu, if you have a small fabricator with alu welding facilities
    they should not be to exspencive Rear is very simple ,one long piece , i kept mine plain ,have not decided on where the number plate should go, Front is in two parts short , up to the fibre glass for the number plate .if you fancy this idea ,i can make a drawing of the basic design and post it to you , they polish up well and you only see a small amount of the original

    Stainless steel exhaust tubing capped on one end of each piece to close the tube , then bond over the ends of the existing chassis tube. Neatens the look.

    On my previous Roadster I had attached Classic Mini chrome rear 1/4 bumpers to the front and full sized one to the rear. Will try to find a picture to show you what they looked like.
