  2. Absolutely amazing result, here goes the story.. My mate lives in berkhamptead north west london. moved there from glasgow this year as managing a company. He text me a photo (trying to make me jelous) of a red manta. saying he bought it for 500 pounds. he had in fact seen it, outside the restaurant after dinner with wife and daughter, new i was into mantas and took the photo. couldn't believe my eyes, seen it was the stolen manta. I called the Hertfordshire police and asked Paul (87exclusive) to call me asap. Police back in contact. POSITIVE ID, what a result!!! owner delighted. Policeman called me and advised he was happy to find the car intact and was very impressed with it. Just shows the benefits of the net and forums. My mate thought i was taking the p*** when i told him it looked like the stolen car. result!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope they catch the idiots who stole it.

  3. Looks like a nice fit. I like the back arches without the cut out for the filler cap. Very nice.

  4. Wonderful news, all this proves what you really get out of being a member of the OMOC, not that this club would not bother to help non members, as I'm sure it would, what it all boils down to is This club is the Ace of Clubs. I hope your car isn't damaged, and that the scum who stole it do get damaged.

Silver blue and black! I was instantly drawn to these,as off next i wil be the owner of these 3 and an additional 2 the guy has! In return i have to restore 1 of the owners red capris needing a mini restore,what a deal!

  10. Plenty of stuff fits and are cheaper than a manta LSD If you can fit an axle from another car and do it on your own then you're on to a winner. If you have to pay someone to fit it then it will be a much much more expensive. I'm getting retro power to do mine ( 4HA ) And I don't think I will get any change out of 2k But I will never have to put another diff in the car.

  12. What a great way to start a Sunday, I had been following the stolen thread and hoped that a good ending would come from this. Hopefully the car is undamaged and this is just another tale to tell when at meets or shows, it all adds to the history of the car and makes it interesting. A decent lucky find story is always worth telling. The Forum and OMOC were on top form here, well done to KennyDock and his mate.
