ok work has been a bit slow, i done the underside (strip and re-paint) engine and box went in last weekend. i'm in need of a bias pedal box now, my next job is to run the fuel and brake lines inside the car sort some of the wiring and get her running. i'll get some pics up when i get a new camera.[:)]

Looks good.

I originaly looked at Mick Lomanos' car in about 1996 at RAF Woodvale and it showed me what you could do with a Manta, i loved that car[:)]

Then i went to Billing and looked at Pete Narancics Turbo Coupe and it blew me away.

Brings back memories of 10 years+ ago and feels like yesterday [^].

Glad to see the car in good hands mate.
