  2. 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.

  5. All, this one is back on face-ache and Ebay I believe. I went to have a look at this last year and it had already been heavily stripped of any useful parts, I understand it was someone's spares car and had sat under a tree for years. I tried to put a deal together for the bits I wanted - Windscreen, steering wheel and a couple of other smaller bits but the seller's business partner had some unrealistic ideas about what things were worth. He wanted £300 for the screen and I would have to remove it myself! I new one from Pilkingtons starts at £350 so I passed on that one. It was slightly complicated by the fact that it was jointly owned by two guys, one of them was fairly reasonable and realistic and the other thought everything was made out of diamonds or something 🤑 Just in case anyone else wanted some bits and pieces from this car, I will give a quick summary of what I saw & noted down - There are no headlights or front grilles left, no rear axle, no side windows or side trim sets (one of the main bits I was looking for), Bonnet and Front wings are scrap and the interior is no good either. You might be able to salvage some of the front suspension and a few other bits and pieces but not much more to be honest. I do remember there being two centre consoles in black, and a set of rear lights but not much else inside stood out as being worth keeping. The engine wasn't seized and there was a gearbox and some other sundries under the bonnet, but I don't think any of these bits are especially sought after or in demand. The last conversation I had with the seller (the reasonable guy) was this is going to be scrapped and if I wanted anything to make him an offer for what I wanted. Lastly, whatever you want you will have to take it off yourself so not sure there is much chance of getting stuff posted out if you live miles away. My last visit I left empty handed after wasting half a day and half a tank of juice getting up there and back, despite having the pound notes in my pocket and the tools in the car I left empty handed. A bit of a reverse Tyre-kicker situation...... I just hope this helps, if anyone else was looking at this as a source of parts. If I do put a deal together and there are any parts that someone needs I am fine to help out if I can, just let me know and I will take a look and collect on your behalf if that would help another Manta owner

  6. I dare say it's a better finish now than when it was new! I guess you found some bumpers then?

  7. 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.
