  1. It’s about time I did a build thread building this car to use in road rally stage events with the help of my father who is a 30 year manta nut who’s turned me from fwd Astra gtes novas in to opel rwd machines 🙂 i already have a mk1 cav saloon running national hot rod spec xe and another spare saloon and another spare coupe 🙂 i have made a good start pics to follow etc I got most of the kit fitting before I had the shell blasted the car had been painted and looked straight As a die I could not believe how much filler was in the rear quarters for no reason at all filler straight over the top of the old paint etc but the paint job was very good I think they did it to have a pin straight car which it was but I hate filler so it has all been bare metalled
