Hello From West Yorkshire

Hi everybody ive been a member for a year now but have never got round to saying hello to you all !

I bought a 1988 exclusive coupe about a year ago and have been busy trying to turn it around .

Mechanically it was ok but bodywork was a bit poor and the sunroof dreadful as usual

Interior was missing quite a few bits also .

I started by running it for 6 months last summer and at the same time finding interior bits I needed and deciding what to do with the sunroof ?

The car is now repainted and a webasto top slider sunroof which got rid of most of the rot as it had been patched up many times badly !

Many thanks to Stradacab for pointing me in the direction of the webasto roof, Mantasrme for advice and oily bits , and everyone who has helped me with all the bits I needed to complete the car to how it is now .

I am hoping to get to Billing and stop fri sat nights and meet more of you this time as last year I was only there for the day on sat .

Once again thanks to everybody for advice and parts for my car .

Hi James here's a couple of pics of sunroof in it fits car perfect . I'm now having a 2.4 cih built as I want to keep the standard look hopefully it will be in for billing !

Will look forward to meeting you and everyone else . Oh and a few beers I expect !!!!

Hello guys, I had thought that most of the club lived down South. It's nice to know there are a few of us up here in Yorkshire. Love the Exclusive and the idea of a 2.4 to keep the cih theme alive. I am an XE fan but they just don't sound the same. Just had a look at the Manta Sport website. It's good to know there is a place that is familiar with Mantas
