Just stumbled across this forum as i am now a proud Marina owner. Many of you will probably recognise the car I now own. Hope i can get some advice on here and sources of parts!

She's my new daily. Just get keep her going really. Love the retro touches from the previous owner. I have a classic mini as a garage queen but wanted something i can comfortably get the kids in the back.

If rear seatbelts aren’t fitted you can buy new lap or inertia reel from Securon dealers.

Welcome :wave: Is that the one that had the damaged bonnet a couple of years back? Marinas are great for daily driving. Rear seatbelts are easy to fit, the anchor points are behind the C pillars, under the seat and on the rear wheel tubs.

Welcome to the forum :thumbup:. There's a thread on here somewhere for this car from one of the previous owners, I'll see if I can find it :thumbup:. I had one as a daily for a few years and loved it and I'm sure you will too :D.

I think it is Gareth, the old bonnet is on ebay at the moment I believe and I recognise the new one as I sold it to the previous owner ;)

ah, nice one! Yes, I saw the damaged one for sale, someone would have to be desperate to buy it! Their not rare and used ones in good shape a pretty cheap.

Welcome to the forum! I do like the way that car sits, quite fancy a Mk3 estate set up in a similar manner myself.
