The alloys in the pictures were on the shell when i got it ,


This is the wheels i have bought to use on the car once complete ,

(Not sure what like they will be) hope they will look okay!,




Dave750rs - I stay in Auldearn myself ,but most of my cars are kept at my work (Chisholms) in Inverness - lot more space, pop over anytime!

This is my latest manta , picked it up from an old man who had her from new,

Only 39,000 on her with full service history ,

Downside is she has sat for 16 years and its taken its toll on her,

Got the Cavy to finish , then Start this one :)

Planning to keep this one standard !!
