Thanks for In information eveo

A new year a new approach to the manta 1 hour after work ( hopefully)

Going out today so ask the bride how long to get ready about 2 hours 

So done a dit to the manta 

Was feeling a bit worried about removing the bumper as the rear 1/4 panels not in the best condition, so remove the bumper, the the 1/4 on o/s n./ s in excellent condition ( result )

 when l removed the bumper found the spacers on the rear 1/4s 

Now have a spare one

. Have fitted the bumper l got 

Going back to original look sort off. The bumper needs a repaint 

Hopefully tomorrow night will fit the rear fog lights, will post photos of the fog lights tomorrow

That's the advantage of at least having at home mate, keep chipping away it will come. I deffinitely would like one of mine in my garage at home at some point in the future for that reason as having to drive across the town to mine is restrictive .

It’s a bit snug in the garage can’t open the door a lot ,so when doing the work in the inside the car getting in and out of the manta can be a bit of a tight. Will do a bit more tomorrow night

Good fix, should work, if you find the tab, make one, or beg,, borrow steal one, think it can be soldered back on, hard to do upsidedown, glass in place. 

Is ur clock working, never had success with these. 

Going great guns, getting the wee issues sorted, keep er lit.

Be very careful if you choose to do it this way get some heat on the glass (heater fan) before soldering as you could you can shatter the glass (thermal shock) done a tab fix on the cougar  used a special tab adhesive from the states.

Silver Epoxy, not cheap got mine from Farnells

I also bought these to use with the epoxy, might help. They are pretty strong

I think that if l glue it on the screen will have to be removed, unless l can figure a way that the connector will not get glued to the screen seal.

Maybe put a piece of thin plastic between the connector and the seal.

Epoxy will not bond to the seal very well anyway, but if you can carefully wedge the rubber away and smear on some Vaseline it definitely can't

never had any sucess in the past with any of the conductive glues or epoxys. only thing that seemed to work well ( for me anyway !) was self adhesive copper sheet ( must be the type with conductive adhesive)

found it on ebay from a music shop .used for guitar screening !

you can then solder to this no problem.but be carefull. localised heat on glass is always a worry.

Ah cool, nice find, what model, something different! The original style of wiper is very dated. We need to make up a thread, Other parts that FITS a manta. A peugeot 405 boot seal, fits, a wee trim, an inch too long. Mk2 golf sunroof seal, Nova brake pads! Mk3 fiesta roof skin to hatch! Supposedly! Only tried and test the seals.

The wipes are from a Nissan Juke ( l think can check in the next few days) 

The wiper arms are original just open the the end a tiny bit 

The qashqai x trail will fit but it’s not as long

Is the n/ s wipe that’s fits 

All so the rear seat release lever on a hatch a Nissan Juke fits well .you can’t tell is of a juke 

I have also replaced the boot seal but can’t remember what what Renault it was from
