  1. When l removed the servo to clean and paint it found that it can be adjusted on the brake pedal so the pedal can up or down
  2. Only looking for a bit of trim to infill the sun roof.so a bit off cut will do as l thinking of a Clio sunroof in the future
  3. This is the inside of the sunroof, did not a photo of this when l was buying it ,note the fixing on the rear , So looking for some lining for this , Of to work now may get a chance to do something later on today
  4. I had to check it properly as it did not feel right, so glad that l pulled it apart before using it , will feel a lot better when the rear is checked When you get the time in rush as got a lot to check and refresh,will post some photos tomorrow just one more thing to sort out
  5. So in the winter months will be doing some more work on the manta Replace the radio,thermostat,inlet manifold,sort the wiring under the exhaust manifold,rear road springs. Clean ,paint the rear suspension fuel pump housing and what else l find Looking for some headliner just enough to cover the inner sun roof if anyone got a off cut kicking about ( just one more cock up got to correct) Will post some photos of the headliner required to make more clear
  6. Only just seen this, not fitted as yet. Hopefully will get to it in the next month ( with a bit of luck) Got some more stuff to do fist
  7. Think it has been removed.This manta is quite solid,but it’s been messed about very badly. Its lots of small stuff,best way to describe it ( f##k it that will do)like when l found a lot of body filler around the battery tray,which l though was in good condition Some times is very annoying that someone just cocked it up
  8. The photos do not show the inner wings.chassis engine bay the main things that you whoud look for
  9. Have just found a owner manual for a manta A ,l was going to buy one some time back
  10. Did not clean it properly or prepare,just a 2 minute spray to check if any good.Will be better prepared ect
  11. You will find most parts on here that you require and lots of help
  12. Welcome to the club.Very nice car is the much to do
  13. Just done a test on plastic,come out okay,was thinking of using them as a centre cap if l use the 16 inch steel rims
  14. Not being silly, any advice is welcome and much appreciate
  15. Have not a specific thing in mind for the paint,but will paint something. What are you going to paint as l test on the same thing
  16. Had a go at the front bumper again. Bolt on the bumper brackets the to the chassis legs Put studs on the bumper.Got the bumper on sort off the gap is a bit to big between the the front panel and the bumper. The front bumper is jammed on the chassis legs and on the lower panel. If l cut a bit of the bumper where it jammed on the chassis legs,hopefully the bumper will come up a bit more and make the gap smaller. May have to fettle with the chassis brackets Will have to relocate the running lights
  17. ALDI where selling chrome paint a fro week’s ago for £5.00 .l did get a can just in case it was required,have not used it yet
  18. A plastic GTE bumper was removed only got rid because it had big holes in the bumper where it had very big lights on it This is what looked like then l got it( the early photos come out upside down)
  19. Just gone in the garage, swapped over the chassis brackets ( O/S to N/S) did not work put the bumper lower
  20. That was my first thought did not take the chassis brackets of so l though l put it on upside down. The bumper bar will only fit on one way But l will check on the chassis brackets ,good though l never thought of that
  21. Today had a go at finding out way it will not fit Found that the fixing brackets on the side’s move backwards and it was twisted when l tried to fit it.they lineup when in the right place(been a long day) put up some photos to show where it catching on .Hitting the lower panel and the chassis legs Was thinking cut the air scupper thing hopefully it will fit Had a look on eBay (no exclusive bumper) ,all the bumpers are the same one l have got . Has anyone got a front bumper from a exclusive of the car and take a photo,

  23. They where in garage been there for years I did buy speaker box years ago,had to cut the box up to make them fit So this time l made my own ones Today replaced the wiring to the front indicators, fitted day time running lights.work brilliant. removed the inner rear trim’s checked for any rot , all very clean no rot , waxed the inner wings refitted trim’s rear seat Put the front bumper back together all bits looking good,went to put on the manta, l have only got the wrong bumper, the side of the bumper is to long come past the wing centre air scupper thing jammed on the lower panel. I think it’s of a F reg manta,did get it from Rob ( FOC ) ,but sold the one that was on the car , did think to check as l though they are all the same .
  24. When l removed the front wings,the wiring to wing indicator was just hanging down ( sum’s up this manta) Have put the wiring though into the inside,where does the indicator wiring go to.
