  1. Hi David, your Manta is 100% sure a real G/TE. On the "fahrzeugbrief" you will find the "schlusselnummer", has got nothing to do with the number on your key 😁, but is an identification code the Germans use. This code is on your Manta 547 and thats the code of a G/TE👍. Your car is made in Antwerp in the 11th month of '77 and exported to Germany. The production of Manta's in Russelsheim stopped somewhere in October '77. @Steve 1900SR, I noticed this also. Probably the VIN plate was made in West Germany?

  2. yes thats what ive done to overriders in the past. drilled deepest absolute possible hole i could and then bonded a long stud into it. in years gone by the manufactures would have no doubt used a brass stud to stop rusting .!

  4. Always thought the hatches looked a bit odd with the vinyl roof, more so in beige. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/275551550250?

  5. Had one like this in the late 80’s without the awful vinyl roof. Today the same driver would be ordering their car with pink roof and door mirrors 😂

  10. It’s amazing how a small job grows arm’s and leg’s, I felt after changing the damper’s that there was too much colour combinations going on and the red just clashed with the yellow and blue so I have started to rub down and re paint the brake drums yellow to match and I’ll tackle the front brake callipers at the weekend,
