  2. Looks great, with those light pods it reminds me to the prototype of the "400" showed in 1981:

    "400" repair

    @Pounsett: And she came back from working out, so she was warmed up😁... Sometimes I put parts in the kitchen oven before welding or she finds something in the freezer before I want to fit a bearing etc. She is used to those situations, think thats why we don't have a dishwasher. I would clean my carb's in that!
  4. Cleaned eight of the 16 valves .... before he got caught by his wife.
  5. It's well deserved mate, people appreciate the effort you put into this for sure.
  6. In its new home awaiting to come out of its 20 year coma and finally get finished 🙂

    Great news on the parts Herman - Onwards!
  11. Thanks Wayne, very good point. I want to keep the original look and feel though, so the Black is only going across the roll bar area. I feel that if the whole thing was Black, it would feel quite dark and oppressive inside.
  12. Available in UK too, both clear and amber.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-CAPRI-MK3-CLEAR-FRONT-INDICATOR-UNITS-LH-RH-NOT-SIDED/183803685208?hash=item2acb8da958:g:5XAAAOSw7QBcza6j
  13. It’s the big one from the water pump to the 3 way junction/manifold thing. Its right of the hose that goes to the bottom of the radiator.

    "400" repair

    After two months there is some news to tell. The set of pistons was not complete cause they lend one out to copy them. And thanks to covid we are not allowed to cross the German border but this week I had a mail from Risse Motorsport they have a set of pistons for me. They are going to send them to me, insured,together wit some other parts. So I'm motivated to start again. My wife came home from the athletic club but she couldn't shower, err Honey there something in the bath-tub... I needed hot water to degrease something: Ofcourse I cleaned up all the mess😄. And the firm that makes aluminium profiles contacted me also, the parts for my little truck are approved for production. Hold your horses, not all together!
  15. Go for black as any marks will show up no matter how carefully you are the will be some marks In work we clean hands where gloves and still some marks on the head liners
  16. Thank you Mike, very good points. It is listed as a headliner material, but certainly well worth a double check!
  17. What hose is. I think I have an almost new one in unit
  18. I would go for the cream. My first Manta (1978 model) had the same headliner with the black "roll-cage". I remember my friends noticed it too and I came up with the story the Manta was designed for rallysport so it had an integraded rollcage😂. To check the colour: try to clean a part, if it hurts doesn't harm caus you'll fit a new one.
  19. Hi IanMc, just a thought before you order your materials, I installed my own headliner of which I ordered from East Kent Trim Supplies and one thing that springs to mind is that I had a small convector heater inside the car while installing the headliner in order to soften it up slightly and the material became quite stretchy which was very useful in getting rid of creases especially round b and c pillars and the roll bar on roof. is the material you are considering able to be stretched? If it’s not I could envisage it to be very difficult to fit without creases.
  20. The samples of the vinyl headliner material have now arrived. It is a good quality material and the pattern is also a good match, so very happy about that. However, I am now more confused about whether to use the White or the Cream for the bulk of the area... The Black is fine as you can see: Here is the White: And this is the Cream: I assume that the existing material has discouloured over the decades, but the Cream is a better match with what is there now. So, decisions, decisions - any thoughts from you guys? Does anyone know what colour it would have been from the factory? Thanks in advance.
  21. Hi guys, I am looking for a supplier of Blue Silicon Hoses for Manta 76 B 1900. Anyone help
  22. Wondered if the back end etc would be of interest to somebody. It’s advertised as a restoration project but looks a bit like wishful thinking. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1980-Holden-Commodore-4-2L-V8-automatic-restoration-project-/174658779994?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
