So after 2 years of running the Marlin on the road to Iron out any mechanical issues (of which there were many!) I have finally managed to get the car painted and back together so thought I would share with everyone! Hopefully the link below should take you to a Flickr album with photos.
My car is a bit of a one off as it was the first E39 rear suspension type Marlin on the road. My build still uses the E36 front uprights and is powered by the e36 3.2 M3 Evo engine, which having now fixed a vanos issue is utterly insane to drive.
The car is in no way perfect, but I’m happy with the end result and I think Range Rover red is a pretty good colour. I still need to fit the windscreen back on and bolt in a spare wheel when I can get my hands on one!
