Hello everybody
Ive just joined the forum and looks like there is a great community and source of info on here.

Im now the owner of car 7448, which was previously owned by my Wifes uncle who I think is ( or at least was) a member on here.

The MM is in need of a full restoration, this will be my first Marcos but Ive been playing with Minis for years!

Attach a couple of pics as it is today and will hopefully add my build log as we get going. I
Will be doing the strip and rebuild and mechanicals etc but the body will be going to someone who knows what they are doing (any recommendations in Cheshire or Staffs area much appreciated)
Many thanks and hopefully share more soon
Stay safe
Thanks
Andy

Hi Graham
Yes it is! I’m just starting the build on a twin cam K1100 now, but at the moment that’s headed for the mini in NA form. I’m going to see how I get on with that in the Mini as that should be done before the Marcos is ready for an engine. It may then be that I put another Twin cam in this but m thinking something with a bit of boost might be good fun in the Marcos. No doubt things will change in the coming months but will post pics!!
Cheers
Andy

Hi Richard,

Yep will get it sent across now...apologies for my tardy response.

In other news i started stripping the Marcos and have already found lots of issues from what I presume are previous repairs or just somebody who had shares in a filler factory!

Will start loading pictures up over the forthcoming few days and weeks as promised and I think I will need some help on identifying what the original should look like.

For starters does anybody know what the dash should have been like in a Mk2? And how were the front windows configured. Were they just perspex sat between two chanels with a thumb screw to lock them up/down etc and should they have had weather strips?
Thanks
Andy
