Welcome to my blog on the journey of buying and restoring a very special Ex Works lightweight Marcos Mantula
Raised the car up today one side at a time which was a bit of a pain as the jack I have is not really low enough to get under the car and made a effort to fit the 2 pieces of side trim that run the length of the body sills. This involved having to drill some screws holes into the lower chassis rails and was quite reassured when waxoil that I had previously inserted started dripping out, long live the chassis !! I was slightly amused to find that whilst each piece of trim fitted the body perfectly in length each side as you can see from the photographs they actually differ in length by about 1 inch, again apparently typical Marcos.
Just waiting on some news on the engine, hopefully won't be too long,
