74TXManta Posted March 23 Share Posted March 23 Hey everybody, A little bit about me and my Manta: I am currently restoring a 1974 Manta Luxus here in Fort Worth, Texas. The original owner was a lawyer in Arlington, Texas, and it was his first car. My late father mowed lawns the summer he turned 16 to buy the car off the original owner. Since my father passed, it's now mine and boy is it a project. I'm in my mid 20's and I have mechanical know-how, but resources often seem scarce and I'm hoping this forum can be of some use to help me as I encounter issues or seek solutions. This week, I dropped the fuel tank for cleaning, put in a new battery, cleaned out the interior, and started removing exterior parts such as wiper blades, lighting assemblies, etc. The electrics work, but I am having some issues with certain functions. I'll add pictures to this thread once I get the chance. Looking forward to digging through the forum and finding helpful tips, and following along with others. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
