Help - 4dr rear screen seal and pedal box

Post by Punkinracer » Fri Jul 21, 2023 6:35 pm

I'm new here and new to marinas, looking for some help/advice please!

Somehow we are the new owners of this Canadian Spec '74 1.8 Marina 4dr in a lovely black tulip colour. I'm fairly positive the colour is the only reason it was allowed to come home in the first place! Anyway, super clean and original car, but came missing the motor and automatic transmission, and all glass rubbers seals are crumbling to dust.

I can find replacement rubber seal for everything except the rear window? They must be infused with unicorn horns or something? Any advice or leads to vendors? I stumbled across some vague details on using a ford escort windshield rubber, has anyone tried this or have specific details?

I would also like to convert the car to a manual transmission, so I'm trying to source a manual pedal box. Marinas are super rare in our area and manual ones even rarer, so looking for other sources that are known to work. Minor, MGB, and Triumph parts tend to be more common around our area.

Thanks in advance!
Pat

Screen rubbers "East Kent Trim" in the UK is the only source I know of, but Skip Harris in the states might be able to help you our (I don't have his contact details unfortunately, but someone will!).

The pedal box itself should be the same for an auto or manual, there's just a blanking plate (certainly that's how my '78 car was), but with a different brake pedal, an clutch pedal and obviously the clutch hydraulics. Unfortunately these are all unique to the Marina, although there are bits that are adaptable for the hydraulics.

Skip just asked me today about Rear Screen Rubbers - he’s out too. East Kent Trim Supplies are the only show in town I’m afraid.

Unfortunately the one that East Kent lists is only for a 2dr, I've sent several emails to them about other options but never got a reply.

Other way around - they sell a saloon one as a stock item, we've been trying to get them to do a 2 door coupé one for a few years now.

Saloon one is here ;)

Their website says they've currently got problems with their internet and phone lines, but I have to say they're not always the easiest to get hold of.

Yeah I think I mistook saloon as a coupe! Looks like East Kent has what I need.
Thanks everyone
