Your Gold Coupe looks pretty good to be honest. I went to work on a coupe today, the same as yours but a white one. Looking at your pictures it looks in good solid shape, like you said there are a few rusty bits like the wheel arch but it shouldn't be too much of a struggle to complete. :)

Your gold Manta is the Coupe relative to my friends gold Hatchback. :) I am guessing that your gold coupe is going to be a Manta 400 replica?

 hope you don't mind but to make it easier for everyone i've posted the photo you have linked, though some people might object to the methods your using... A two post lift is totally cheating !! you should be on your back on the front drive, rain soaking your legs, the dog cocking it's leg on your boots !!

Nice lift by the way and will make everything a whole lot easier for when you put it back together and want to add any protection to the bottom of your Manta. :) Are you going to keep it gold by the way or a different color 400R?
