Simon -- did you get the Lexan windows? Can you share pics? Im thinking of fixed front windows with slider kits in. Ive got two soft top cars (MR2 & Spitfire) for summer, will so use the Marcos more in cooler months - especially in the snow -wicked ..  

IMM is mid-August, so maybe 9 weeks of DVLA sh1te if you are taking the Marcos.. Id have no chance. Engine has not run in 30+ years ..

thinks havnt been going to good lately,
I re-ordered a new drivers window in the new dimensions as the previous ones i ordered were the wrong size.
Waited 5 weeks and they had sent me the same old dimension windows,so thats another long wait for replacements
and now i found out the dvla never received my v5 after 6 weeks of waiting(yeh of course it was lost in the post)
So now there will be no imm in the marcos for me

Ive been staying out of the garage for the last 3 weeks due to the problems with the dvla and a certain plastics company,just totaly took the wind out of my sails and put me right off the marcos.
But i did venture into the garage last night and though i would have another go at making a door handle as i had one left after the last one melted.
over the moon i actually managed it
