Default Build Manual

Can anyone advise if Marlin updated the build manual from the original CD that they gave me in 2005 when I bought the kit.
More importantly is there any information on fitting the body panels and doors. On the edition I have there is no info at all.

Hi Mike,

Don't think it was ever updated......from memory I used info from the Which Kit build, and trial and error.

Start with the cabin cross member that goes behind the seats, then the sides followed by front and back. Bolting the clams to the side really helps alignment trials..........and don't be surprised if you have to have the bodywork on and off half a dozen times. Pain in the proverbial, but rewarding in the end...honest

Think I had some pictures with some measurements that I found did not work for fitting the body. I'll try and dig them out.

I did not fit mine. Car went to Marlin. Fitted the windscreen at the same time. But helped fit the doored version body with friend.

As rich says above. Start with the rear cross section.
