My 400R


Recommended Posts

I bought this about a year ago from a lad who had a Manta GTE for sale but when I saw the 400r i decided to buy it instead as most of the donkey work had been done ie the kit was fitted,there had been an engine transplant so this would save me a great deal of time, I had a couple of mishaps with it but it's getting there now.

This is how I bought it with most of the parts required in boxes.



down the road and then stripped down






My main problem was the hole in the roof, the lad had cut it out to put a panoramic style roof in it but according to the Glaziers who were to do the job, they said it couldn't be done .


change of bonnet


change of bonnet again as I thought the first one was too flimsy


came up damaged
