  7. Front axle officially finished now. New Vented Audi discs and GTE callipers fitted, tried and trusted upgrade setup that is well worth the money 👍 Brembo pads from the local factors, £23.81 😁 So thats; Modded Audi discs £80 from David Howell, Calipers from FB market place cost £70inc postage, and £23.81 for pads. Total £173.81. , About the same as Merc charge me front pad replacement in my GLC! Absolutely a bargain of an upgrade to the Manta.

  15. Wow can't believe i haven't updated this for so long! Although i have been cracking on with the car. So metal work all finished, i then i had to fit the kit properly, although it fitted well there was still a lot of fettling to be done just to make sure the kit fits where it should and gaps are spot on. Heres the full kit i bought First test fit to see what was what! I used a different bonnet that i had as this fitted a lot better, the other would fit but needed a lot more work. As i had decided to fit the lamp pod, (always had a soft spot for spotlamps). I picked up a pod but really should of looked into this more, the one i got was in 2 sections but the mould quality was poor so took me a lot longer to fit how i wanted it. First job was to cut out the front upper panel between the lights Then offered up the lamp pod, well that was a laugh almost welded the front panel back in again😡. Well after lots of shaving twecking etc i got it fitting well This was only half of it as i now had to fit the lower section into the bumper, can't recall how many times i measured to make sure it was spot on, once cut and fitted just with tape at this point. It would take lots of prep to get it looking well with the bumper, before that i fibreglassed it into the bumper. Here it is fitted with just i pair of lights to see all was ok, don't get me started on the fabrication needed behind to get these lights fitted! Fitted the rear end back up and the Irmscher spoiler sections to the top of the 1/4s, always do a test fit before paint as easier to put things right now if needed. Then it was onto a case of getting the first coat of 2k primer on. So first coat on with a good dust coat to show up any imperfections when sanding down. Ok so after spending ages flatting the whole car down including the kit etc i then gave it a 2nd coat of 2k primer. I haven't done the engine bay as yet because this will need a bit of fabrication work for the engine, intercooler etc and new pedal box. This is the engine i'm fitting!!! I'll update the thread sooner next time🤞

  22. Hi mate, feel your pain. the Carlton disc is 246mm same diameter as the std Mayan disc, hence why you need the (very rare) Carlton Caliper. I have just gone the Audi 80mm disc route, however the callipers are not as easy to track down as they used to be. With that said, I after much looking at the brembo catalogs, I suspect the Vectra A 4stud wheel cars also use the same Caliper, but I can’t confirm this as yet! what I can say for sure is the SAAB callipers from the 9-3 donor do bolt right onto the the stub axle, but they need a 280(plus a bit)mm disc that has had its centre bore made bigger on a lathe. But the callipers can bind on spring and there is a better Caliper choice for this disc. The discs that would work are Sierra Cosworth discs.( message Shaun400r has he did have a kit for sale based on this setup). However, there is also another mod that uses Volvo 4pot callipers and modded Honda prelude discs. http://d-petrakis.com/volvo240/ If all this is way too much, you can get a Wilwood kit for Carlton 246mm discs (Inc discs) for around £480. https://www.motorsport-tools.com/wilwood-vauxhall-chevette-manta-brake-kit-dynalite-4-pot-calipers-246mm-disc.html
